Restrictions from December 31

The end of 2021 is approaching and although many were getting ready to celebrate the New Year, the appearance of the omicron, the new variant of COVID-19, has forced to change the plans, because the government has taken a series of provisions and is still analyzing others to contain the increase in infections.

The Minister of Health, Hernando Cevallos, recommended that the population receive the New Year with its family bubble, that is, with people who live at home without the presence of outsiders because it is not known with whom they have had contact.

He explained that the restrictive measures, which will be mentioned below, are intended to avoid social gatherings and crowds in the presence of the omicron variant and thus reduce the risk of contagion.

WHAT ARE THE NEW YEAR RESTRICTIONS?

The restrictions for New Years are as follows:

  • Curfew: The curfew will be from 11 p.m. on Friday, December 31 until 4 a.m. on Saturday, January 1.
  • Social gatherings: Social gatherings and crowds are prohibited in the presence of the omicron variant and reduce the risk of contagion. It is recommended to be with the same social bubble.
  • Use of pyrotechnics: The use of fireworks is prohibited because it can cause injuries and pollute the environment. Fines and even jail time will be imposed in the event of an accident.
  • Private cars: Vehicles may not circulate outside during curfew hours, which will be from 11:00 PM on Friday, December 31, until 4:00 AM on Saturday, January 1.
  • Consumption of liquor: The government ordered the prohibition of the consumption of alcoholic beverages and food on beaches, rivers, lakes, lagoons, and public swimming pools throughout the country, as a preventive measure in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. This must be fulfilled on December 31, 2021, and on January 1 and 2, 2022.
