The Vuelta a España has decided to ban all public from the climbs of the 2020 edition of the race and asks public to stay at home.

As the Spanish government is fighting the spread of Covid-19 in the country, the organisation of the grand tour, in coordination with health authorities and the government delegations of all territories crossed by the route of the race have agreed to apply a series or restrictions to some departures, finish lines and mountain passes to limit the amount of public.

For these reasons, the mountain passes will have restricted access in order to guarantee the protection of the athletes and of the personnel working with their respective teams. The mountains that will be cut and have restricted access are: Arrate Mountain Pass, La Laguna Negra. Vinuesa, Col du Tourmalet, Orduña, Alto de Moncalvillo, Alto de la Farrapona. Lagos de Somiedo, Alto de l'Angliru, Mirador de Ezaro. Dumbria and the Alto de la Covatilla.

The organisation of the race -which will be held from the 20th of October to the Eight of November- has also launched a campaign to ask the fans to stay at home and watch it from home to avoid any type of crowds surrounding the event.
