Measures to combat Covid-19 in Barcelona
Given the surge in the number of cases of COVID-19, the Spanish government has declared a state of emergency (ES) so that Spain’s regional governments can adopt the necessary measures for containing the pandemic.
In this context, the Government of Catalonia has initiated a plan for resuming activities, agreed with the various sectors.
The Catalan government is the authority responsible for adopting, abolishing, amending and implementing measures to prevent infections. Under the new Catalan Territorial Civil Protection Plan (PROCICAT), at the metropolitan level, municipalities in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area are working together with the Catalan government to contain outbreaks.
Barcelona City Council has been playing a key role in the management of the healthcare and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and has been working hard with its finances and resources to offer city residents all the services, aid and protective measures they need in these truly exceptional times.

If you’ve got Covid-19 symptoms or you’ve been in contact with somebody diagnosed with it, get in touch with your primary healthcare centre or call 061 (freephone number).. Stay at home and isolate yourself from all other householders.
And remember that the main measures for slowing down the transmission of the virus are: maintain a safety distance, wash your hands, use a facemask, reduce social contact as far as possible and avoid crowds.
If you have a condition which puts you at risk, take extra care with your precautions.
