The Executive has ordered the closure of these types of establishment as soon they “no longer have any clients to attend to and, in any case, within a maximum period of seven calendar days.”

The Government has authorised the closure of all hotels and tourist accommodation within a maximum period of one week, to complement the measures already taken to stop the expansion of the coronavirus. The Ministry of Health published this legislation in an extraordinary Official State Gazette (BOE) under the framework of the declaration of the state of emergency due to the impact of Covid-19.

The new rule, which came into force on Thursday, establishes this preventive measure for all hotels and similar accommodation, as well as for tourist and other short-stay accommodation, campsites, caravan parks and other similar establishments, located anywhere in the country. The Executive has ordered the closure of all these types of establishments as soon as they “no longer have any clients to attend to and, in any case, within a maximum period of seven calendar days” from the entry into force of the rule on 19 March.
