The mark1199 list of Catalan municipalities that will have a curfew this Thursday expanded to 161 towns (3 more than the initial list), will be reviewed every 7 days to adapt it to the reality of the pandemic. The criterion to which this nightly confinement responds is that of populations of more than 5,000 inhabitants and with a cumulative incidence greater than 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
The 3 municipalities added to the initial list are Altafulla, Santa Cristina and Caldes Estrac due to the increase in the incidence of the Covid affectation for all mark1199 list
Initially, the Government asks the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia ( TSJC ) for a curfew for a period of 7 days, extendable and revisable, so that municipalities can be added or dropped from the list according to the impact of the covid in these localities , and the court must give its endorsement week after week.

The forecast of the Executive of Pere Aragones is that the night confinement lasts at least 3 weeks , although it has not specified how many. It is certain that the Government will request an extension for another two weeks.
Because with only seven days it will not be possible to reverse the situation, as explained by spokesperson Patricia Plaja, who has avoided specifying whether this situation could last throughout the summer.
“Although it is initially requested for a week, in that period it will not be possible to reverse some more than lousy data I cannot limit the deadline, but surely this week, the next and the next,” Plaja said to questions about the duration curfew.
