16 Mar: Spain is currently in a State of Emergency

Spain starts a country-wide period of lockdown which began on Saturday 14 March and will last for a period of at least 15 days. During this period people are permitted to be out only to travel to a supermarket/pharmacy/hospital, travel to work, take out rubbish and take the dog for a short walk. When people do go out, the expectation is to respect the protocols about social distancing and to be out for only the minimum necessary period of time.
