The declaration of the state of alarm does not mean that it will return to the strict confinement of the toughest months of the pandemic. The Government is using it this time as a legal instrument to restore the perimeter confinements whose ratification denied on Thursday by the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid (TSJM). Since its entry into force the situation in the Community of Madrid will once again be the same as before the judicial decision: You will not be able to enter or leave the capital Madrid and nine other municipalities except for work, school and other exceptional situations.

Can be sanctioned

Actually there will be a difference. Just one. Before the TSJM pronounced, the police could not fine citizens that violate the order. The judicial endorsement was needed to be able to begin to sanction, since the restriction of movements affects the fundamental rights of citizens. With the state of alarm, this stumbling block is saved because these rights can be suspended in this way without the need for any judicial guarantee.

The inhabitants of Madrid capital, Alcalá de Henares, Alcobendas, Alcorcón, Parla, Móstoles, Getafe, Torrejón de Ardoz, Leganés and Fuenlabrada, They will be able to enter and leave their homes without any restriction and move within the limits of their municipal term, although the recommendation is that they only do so when it is essential. But it is only a recommendation.

Bars and shops

The rest of the measures of the Health order that affect the capacity and hours of shops and bars were already in force because the court did not suspend that part of the rule. The bars and restaurants They have to close at 11 pm, they cannot provide bar service and the capacity inside is reduced to 50% and on the terraces to 60%. Shops have reduced capacity to 50%.
