It will be announced tomorrow, but all of Galicia is moving up to Level 2 of restrictions (50% capacity in the hospitality industry, no bar service, and gatherings/ meetings can only be 5 people.)

However, in Santiago de Compostela and Milladoiro, the restrictions will be stricter at Level 3 - meetings of up to 5 people only if they live together and NO interior bar/ cafe service at all. Restaurants can still have seating inside, but only in tables of up to 5 people who live together.

The restrictions start at midnight Thursday morning.

I am looking for news about it in English to share but am having a hard time. The following article is in Spanish:


EDIT: I realized I gave wrong information before about Galicia moving back to Phase 2 and have edited it above to reflect Level 2, not Phase 2 (which was back while we were coming out of lockdown).

we can definitely forget the Camino until there is a vaccine, at for me that is. I have done 12 Caminos and possibly my Caminos have come to an end sadly.

Been involved with Camino since 2003. Still cannot accept that for me as I age that the time is ending. I am seeking new routes for my local daily walk but treat myself to the random photos on the forum as my "dream-time". Memories to me are as fires in the night that warm the heart as well as the hands. My Caminos never really leave me and I am grateful for what they gave and still give, to me.

Vaya con Dios

The videos David has listed are also a source of inspiration. I think in the Spring we will have more clarity of when we may be able to travel internationally again.
Hope springs eternal!

Agree 100% Samarkand. I'm hoping for one final camino next May - the Baix Maestrat in Castellon, a very short one. But I will be 82 years old!!

Keep those hopes alive - it’s encouraging to know that we never give up !
Samarkand & Stephen / are you near enough to each other to catch up locally for inspiration ?
Stay safe & Buen camino

May we all keep on keeping on and be thankful for life, for love and for precious memory.

"...and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

Dear fellow Peregrinos, I love all these thoughts. We walk every day and everywhere in our own milieu/habitats. We find creative walks, even if around the block over and over, that link us! We dream awake of Caminos past and hopefully future. I was reminded to be present to my everyday Camino. Mspath thanks for Ulysses. Samarkand, AnnieOz, and all Buen Camino!

I think what many of us have said is again unfortunately bearing fruit again. The virus will continue to roar back over and over again. Stay home, don't walk, don't involve yourself with risky behavior, exhibit self control, etc, etc. (Kind of reminds me of the AIDS crisis. It took therapeutics and the curtailing of risky behavior before that virus became manageable. Behavior is alot easier to change early on than finding effective therapeutical remedies so please we all need to behave. I want to get back out there as badly as anyone on this forum but........

This is totally not meant as a knock on your comment. (People always say that before they knock you ;)) Seriously it just shows how quickly things can change in this pandemic. I am sure your figures are correct as of 8 days ago. Now in just one week's time, France, Germany and Spain are all taking drastic measures again to try to stem this pandemic. In the United States we are breaking records almost daily now for the number of new cases. The camino teaches us patience and that all we have is the step we are taking. Unfortunately the world is becoming more and more impatient. Putting ourselves and others at risk. All that is needed is one person, pilgrim or otherwise who enters a town not knowing that they may carry the virus. Impatience leads to what we have today. The Camino will be there. It taught us a new way to live. Maybe the virus is teaching us the same thing. We need to listen.

Agree, actually now is double: 10,2 % of ICU beds with Covid in Galicia, but it is still the lowest in Spain (25,5%) with some regions around 40%.

Lets hope it stays low. Hopefully many of the cases that are appearing in Santiago are overrepresented by the large university population and less of these people need hospitalizations. Unfortunately it doesn't mean that these young people aren't suffering some lasting effects of the virus. Hope everyone who recovers does so quickly and completely. You take care also.
