I hope you are all well and keeping safe. As always if English or German are not your first language and you need clarification on any of the information included in this mailing, please contact the afpop office to ask for assistance. 

Before we get into the detail, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year, despite the current situation.  

Following the renewal of the State of Emergency decreed by the President of the Republic, which will be in effect between 00h01 on January 8th and 23h59 on January 15th, the Council of Ministers approved the decree that regulates the measures to be adopted to different levels of transmission risk. There will be a further assessment after the weekend and we will have a further briefing for you then, which will also include other matters, such as Covid vaccines, mail to the UK and new Residency cards update.

The decree essentially maintains the rules currently in force for municipalities with very high and extreme risk, although these now also apply to high-risk municipalities. For these three levels, on the weekend of January 9th and 10th, it was determined that there will be:

Prohibition of circulation on public roads from 13h00.
Prohibition of movement between municipalities.

Please note that the ban on driving between counties also applies to counties with a moderate risk level over that weekend.

We have an updated map and alphabetical list in this LINK

Until next time as always my best wishes to you all and please continue to,
