On 25 October, the Spanish national government declared a new state of emergency for 15 days, with the possibility of extension until 9 May 2021.

At the national level, there will be a curfew from 11pm to 6am. Regional authorities may deviate from this by one hour.

Meetings with more than 6 people are prohibited.

The autonomous regions may also adopt additional measures. For example, restrictions on freedom of movement are currently already in place in Asturias.
