“At the end of February of last year we detected the first case of coronavirus, from that day our lives began to change, having to take very hard and complicated measures. We have changed our way of life and we have become accustomed to living with measures such as use of the mask. Exiting the pandemic has been a collective commitment to the enormous response to vaccination, which will have to continue in order to bring them closer to normality prior to the COVID-19 pandemic “, declared the President of Navarra .
From October 1 in the provincial community, the restrictions that the Navarrese Government announced for the first time more than a year ago will cease to be in force, except for the use of the mask, which will continue to be mandatory indoors and the measures agreed in the interterritorial of health. The hospitality industry will regain its pre-pandemic schedule, as well as bar consumption, which has been banned for a year. In turn, the discos will also be able to reopen the dance floors.

End to the confinement of classrooms in Primary for a positive
In education, Primary classrooms will no longer be confined when a positive case is detected, unless there is a large outbreak. Students will continue to be tested when a case is detected, but unless they are positive, they can continue to attend class.
