    Terraces of bars and restaurants have been allowed to reopen in some parts of Spain as of Monday in a step towards deconfinement.

    Spain’s deconfinement, which will happen gradually until the end of June, has three phases. The passage from one phase to another depends on the epidemic’s evolution. 

    In areas allowed to move into this first phase, meetings of up to ten people are now permitted. Small shops, churches, and museums are also allowed to reopen while limiting capacity.
