What is happening?
Now that the state of alert declared in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been lifted, we have reached the stage where activities are gradually being resumed, but where precautions still need to be taken to contain any new outbreaks. New measures in place since 17 July restrict get-togethers to a maximum of ten people and ban various night-time leisure activities, where it is much harder to ensure people continue to wear masks and keep to social distances.
Culture, leisure, sport and commerce are being maintained with restricted user capacities and other precautions you can consult from this website. City residents are making great efforts to prevent the spread of the virus. For the sake of solidarity with everyone, let’s look after ourselves and enjoy the city in safety.
Measures for the new normal
After completing the various phases of the Covid-19 lockdown-exit process, Barcelona finally became part of the new normal. However, the current epidemiological situation in the city and other municipalities makes it necessary to adopt special containment measures in order to stop the transmission of the virus.
The current situation is a huge challenge for all families with children, that have had to adapt to the health emergency and its requirements.
Children are very important for the city. Now we can all pull together to turn this challenge into an opportunity to look after ourselves and learn together. To share.
That’s why we invited them to explain their experiences and express their feelings in “Estimat diari”. Now that the state of emergency is over, “Estimat diari” is ending and will act as a showcase for the creations that the children of Barcelona shared during this period.
From September, you can send questions again to the Mayor, Ada Colau, who will be replying to them regularly on YouTube and IGTV.
Some of the health tips you should follow during the new normality period include washing your hands and respecting the minimum safety distance while shopping. If you have symptoms, it's important to isolate yourself from others and to use the health system responsibly.
The state of emergency caused by the COVID-19 crisis has left images of the city never seen before. Take a photographic tour of the developing health crisis in Barcelona: the city deserted during the lockdown, the public services in operation and the lockdown-exit process.
