The decision of Health and Legal Services of the Government of Aragon to publish this order comes after the order of the Superior Court of Justice of Aragon, which had requested prior authorization for the implementation of this measure. The court asserts in its own resolution that its position does not imply “a blockage” to the health Administration. In fact, the TSJA encourages the Government of Aragon to “adopt the measures it deems appropriate to fulfill its constitutional function (…) to fight against the health crisis.”
