These measures install a new lockdown phase, allowing people to leave home only to go shopping for basic necessities, to exercise once a day, to seek medical assistance or provide care for a vulnerable person and to travel to and from work when an absolute necessity. The measures are also banning gatherings of more than two people and suspending all social events, as well as closing non-essential businesses, stores, and public premises.
