Under this latest measure, to be applied from Friday 15 May and which will be in force for the duration of the State of Emergency, travellers must remain isolated in their homes or other accommodation for 14 days, and must limit their trips out to the purchase of food, medicines and other essential items; they may also go to health centres, to access health services and establishments, or due to force majeure or other essential need.
