There is some non-substantial but striking change of what we already knew when checking the fine print of the resolution that has been published in the Official Gazette of the Autonomous Community.
Eye to the smokers because you can’t smoke on the street because it is not considered an exception, although hThere is a point that smokers could qualify for because it ensures, as explained by the Minister of Health, Patricia Gómez, that “the mask will not be required in the street andn cases of force majeure “ and here this possibility could be interpreted.
The obligation to use masks has exceptions like playing sports, not wearing it on beaches and pools and also, and this is one of the novelties, on boardwalks, if there are no crowds. We will also stay exempted of wear it outdoors or in the field, that is to say, outside the urban centers.
If we consume food or drinks in public places we will not have to take it plus not specifically limited to this moment, that is, we can be in bars and restaurants without the mask on.
It is not mandatory in the workplace either They are public or private if the distance between people can be guaranteed.
And another novelty, minors under 16 years of age are not required to use the masks while participating in summer schools and camps, as long as these activities are carried out with their stable coexistence group.
So from today to wear the mask and properly put, it has to cover from the nose to the chin.
