The state of alert is the lowest level of response to disaster situations in the Civil Protection Basic Law.

“The Council of Ministers today approved the resolution that extends the declaration of the alert situation, within the scope of the Covid-19 disease pandemic, until 23:59 on March 22, 2022”, says the statement.

According to the Government, the resolution, which enters into force on March 8, keeps the measures currently in force unchanged.

Among the measures in force is the mandatory use of a mask in public indoor spaces, health services and transport.

For those who do not have the booster dose of the vaccine against covid-19, the negative test for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus remains mandatory in visits to homes and health establishments, taking into account that they are groups of special vulnerability.
