However, for the moment it is expected that the following measures will decline in most autonomous communities:

1. Curfew: the suspension of the freedom of movement of people at night

2. Perimeter closure: the limitation of the entrances and exits of the autonomous communities

3. Meetings: the prohibition of meetings of more than six people in both public and private spaces.
