There is a verb inherent in the Camino de Santiago adventure that has just been settled in the fight against the coronavirus: sharing is no longer possible. The Jacobean Council has approved a series of recommendations for the backpacks of the pilgrims who cross, from July, the north of the peninsula in the new normality and in them everything is personal and non-transferable: a canteen of its own, non-disposable cutlery, razor and eating container, sleeping bag and, of course, a hygienic kit with masks, hydrogel and disinfectant spray. And a pen.



It is also recommended to disinfect the furniture in the rest area before using it, wash your hands with hydroalcoholic gel before and after handling the fountains, always drink in a container, avoid contact with the tap, deposit the backpacks outside the rooms. closed, do not touch anything. The new Camino de Santiago does not escape the safety distance or the masks on the most difficult slopes, in the middle of summer. In this preservative reality, it is also preferable that the credential be stamped by the staff of the premises and, in case of traveling the route by bicycle, park it in a place that is not in contact with others. It is preferable to disinfect it before reassembling and starting off. However, the ministry recalls that the recommendations are not a "protocol" as such. The recommendations made "are a synthesis" of the Guide for hostels of the Secretary of State for Tourism.

On the Camino de Santiago, one of the most important cultural assets in Spain, which is preparing for the Holy Year Xacobeo 2021 (declared an Event of exceptional public interest), the dining rooms will be “probably closed”, as indicated in the published recommendations. So the authorities warn that it is preferable to plan meals. There is no place for improvisation on the Camino de Santiago anticovid. There is also no estimate of pilgrim volume for the post-pandemic and confinement summer. In 2019 they broke a record, with nearly 350,000 arriving in the Galician capital through its different routes. 44% of them were Spanish and, among foreigners (with a total of 190 different origins), Italians were the most numerous on the road that connects Santiago de Compostela with the rest of Europe since the Middle Ages.

The opening dates and the new capacity of 2,200 hostels and other accommodations that will welcome walkers will be made public in July. As indicated by the Secretary of State for Tourism, the daily entry and exit of users of the hostels "requires greater attention to be paid to the procedures for cleaning and disinfecting rooms and toilets after the departure of pilgrims in the morning." These accommodations must disinfect "common toilets" a minimum of six times a day ". On the other hand, rooms with multiple capacities are preferable to be occupied by families or by pilgrimage groups. And about the donations for the shelters, better that they be by electronic means than with cash.

Well in some albergues only one pilgrim in the kitchen is allowed. So, it really depends on the interpretation of the guidelines.

Do I understand correctly that in July we will learn more specifics about accommodations, that 2021 will continue as the Holy Year (and not be delayed to 2022 by the Pope as previously discussed), and if the albergue has a kitchen, we can use the fridge and stove and the pots and pans, but must bring out own bowl and utensils?
