It came into force, after its publication in the Official Journal, on 24 March 2020.
Its Article 4 provides that the state of health emergency is declared for a period of two months, i.e. until 24 May 2020. It should be noted that this two-month period may be extended or shortened by decree.
Pursuant to this Act, the Government has issued a series of orders, some of which particularly impacted the situation of foreigners settled in the national territory.
