Face mask mandatory everywhere in Catalonia from Thursday | Abroad


The mask should also be worn if there is enough space to keep a distance from each other. According to the prime minister, people should wear a mouth mask until a vaccine against the dreaded virus has been found. The obligation applies to all public spaces. An exception is only made for people who do not wear a mask on doctor’s advice.

Last weekend, Catalonia placed an area to the west of Barcelona, ​​including quarantine of the city of Lérida. That was after a sudden sharp increase in the number of infections. The quarantine of the Segria region is the first to be reintroduced since Spain started phasing out corona measures. In Lérida, healthcare is preparing for some admitted corona patients to be transferred to, for example, Barcelona to relieve the local hospitals.

Throughout Spain, a mouth mask must be worn outside in areas where people cannot keep 1.5 meters apart. However, no mouth masks are worn on most beaches and they are also rare in Spanish cafes and restaurants. It is not yet clear what exactly the Catalan government wants on beaches and in the catering industry.

The fine for not complying with the rule is one hundred euros. “The idea is that we all leave the house with the mask on,” says the Catalan health minister. “We have to remember that we can all have the virus with us and spread it.”
