The use of a mask is mandatory in public spaces and on urban roads; provided that there are no crowds of people that do not allow to maintain the minimum interpersonal safety distance of 1.5 meters.

The use of face mask is mandatory in enclosed public premises such as bars, restaurants, shops and cultural establishments, among others.

The use of face masks is mandatory for all people over 6 years old, although it is recommended starting at six years old.

As this practice entails a certain risk, both smoking and the use of vaping devices is prohibited whilst walking on public streets, regardless of whether you are on your own or in a group.

Smoking or using vaping devices is permitted individually, as long as the smoker stays in one place and keeps a safe social distance from other pedestrians.

Gloves can create a false sense of security, a hand wash is much more effective. If you wear your own gloves to a commercial establishment, you will have to swap them for the new gloves you will be given upon entering. The gloves should be disposable. Once outside, we recommend that you use hand sanitiser gel.

To date, the social distancing measures established by the authorities vary depending on where you are and what you are doing. 

  • If you are passing through an urban area and/or an outdoor area used by the public:

We recommend maintaining a distance of 4 metres from the person in front and always walking on the right-hand side. It is mandatory wearing a face mask.

  • If you are in an enclosed area used by the public: 

You must maintain a distance of 1.5 metres in enclosed areas; the use of the face mask is mandatory.

  • If you are practising sport:

In the open air, virus particles are expelled for longer distances if you are moving. If you are walking, we recommend maintaining a distance of 4 metres from the person in front. If you are running, this distance should increase to 10 metres. The use of a face mask is mandatory as long as you cannot maintain the recommended safety distance.

If you are cycling, you must maintain a distance of 20 metres. The use of a face mask is mandatory if you drive in urban areas.

  • If you are practising sport in the mountains:

You do not need to wear a face mask, unless you encounter other hikers along your route. If this occurs, we recommend that you stay a safe distance of 4 metres from them.

You can buy face masks and hand sanitiser gel at any pharmacy. They are also available in some shopping centres and supermarkets.
