Spain’s government has announced a new timetable clearly outlining who can go out and when from tomorrow as the country begins to relax lockdown restrictions.
Health Minister Salvador Illa said that the fixed timetable will help to avoid overcrowding and the risk of Covid-19 contagion.
Individuals wanting to do short activities like running, cycling or going for a walk can do so, either between 6 and 10 in the morning, or in the evening from 8 to 11.
The activity is limited to one kilometre from home and individuals must maintain social distancing, two metres away from others.
Families with children can now only go out between the hours of 12-7pm once a day, instead of 9am – 9pm as announced last week.
The other rules announced last week, however, continue to apply. “Only one parent is allowed to go out with up to three children up to one kilometre away from home and just once a day.
The Health Minister said it’s vital to keep the over 70’s and the vulnerable separate from the young to avoid contracting Covid-19.
So the elderly will be allowed to go out either from 10 in the morning 12 midday or 7pm to 8pm in the evening.
They can also be accompanied by one person from the same household or a caregiver if necessary.
However, those that live in “municipalities with less than 5,000 people don’t have to respect this timetable as there is no risk of overcrowding.
The health minister said we must “remember all activities need be limited to just once a day and we must not venture further than one kilometre away from home.”
Finally, he added that “wearing a face mask is also recommended.”
