AS from Sunday, April 26, Gijón in northern Spain will open green spaces and parks of the city (except for children’s play areas), as well as the urban beaches of San Lorenzo, Poniente and El Arbeyal, for the newly authorised walks for children.
The use of urban beaches will be exclusively for the walks of minors, in no case will dogs be allowed to access them, the exits of which are still restricted to areas near the home. Gijón Town Hall has made this decision considering that open spaces are the appropriate places for the recreation of boys and girls, always maintaining the required security measures.
Minors living in rural environments may go for a walk in the countryside, also respecting the distance, and those with symptoms compatible with Covid-19 or who are in quarantine, for whatever reason, must remain at home, keeping the confinement.
