Returning to nature, to enjoy the imposing rural landscapes and the towns of the province of León, is a stone’s throw away. At least, on paper, there is already an initial forecast of the moment in which the gradual lack of confidence after the health crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic will allow the people of León to express their habitual passion for nature, hiking, mountaineering and outdoor activities.
The Government of Spain, which yesterday announced the four phases of the lack of confinement, has put in writing that it will be in the so-called Phase 1 in which activities of “active and nature tourism for limited groups” will be allowed. That is the condition that the ministerial plan includes right now, which will be detailed later in specific publications in the Official State Gazette (BOE).
There is no specific date for returning to León to enjoy nature in small groups. It is only certain that the so-called Phase 0 will undoubtedly start throughout Spain, only with earlier exceptions in the Canary Islands, next Monday, May 4. It is assumed that those territories with the best behavior in the numbers of infected and hospitalized by the coronavirus Phase 1 can start around May 11, but it remains to be seen if León is within those parameters.
In any case, this Phase 1, when it becomes effective in the province, will allow such outdoor activities of active and nature tourism, which will not be individual but collective, although with limitations to be determined.
At the same time, in this Phase 1, the opening of some establishments such as hotels or tourist accommodation will also be allowed, although always without the use of common areas and with restrictions, for example, in restoration, among other activities, disinfection and reinforcement of standards. health and hygiene.
