    Internal restrictions:

    Quarantine orders and sanitary cordons are in place in Santiago and in other parts of the country. Chile is deploying a flexible approach to bringing municipal areas (called communas) in and out of quarantine/sanitary cordons. New measures can be announced by the government at any time and come into force shortly after, although changes are typically announced every Wednesday and are applied from Fridays onwards. On 28 July, as part of the Chilean government‚Äôs step-by-step, five stage plan for the parts of Chile under quarantine orders to emerge in a phased manner from lockdown, five comunas in the Santiago metropolitan area – La Reina, Las Condes, Lo Barnechea, √Ďu√Īoa, and Vitacura and the outlying towns of Colina and Til Til – moved from quarantine (Stage 1) into the ‚Äėtransition phase‚Äô (Stage 2), along with two comunas in Valpara√≠so – San Antonio and San Felipe. Under this arrangement, in Stage 2, quarantine measures in those comunas are lifted between 0500 and 2200, Monday to Friday with those residing in the areas no longer having to apply for permission to leave their residence or to move within their communa. Social gatherings of no more than 10 people are allowed. However, quarantine measures remain in place at weekends and bank holidays, with the nationwide curfew still enforced seven days a week, as well as obligatory quarantine for those over 75 and a prohibition on movement to a secondary home.All other parts of the metropolitan region of Santiago and five neighbouring municipalities (San Bernardo, Buin, Puente Alto, Padre Hurtado and Lampa) remain under quarantine until at least 31 July (inclusive). In addition, the urban areas of Melipilla, Curacav√≠, Pe√Īaflor and San Jos√© de Maipo are under quarantine orders until at least 31 July (inclusive).
