NEW tougher mask rules in Andalucía

NEW tougher mask rules in Andalucía effects hospitality and sports

The Junta de Andalucía has announced on Thursday, October 22 that it plans on introducing tighter restrictions on mask wearing in the whole of Spain’s Andalucía.

Under the new guidelines, people practicing individual sports such as cycling, running and skating must now wear a mask if in a densely-populated area. The rules for group sports have not changed.

Furthermore, in bars and restaurants, customers must wear their masks unless they are eating or drinking – in other words, people will not be allowed to remove their masks between courses while sitting at the table.

In a further blow to the hospitality sector, the Junta de Andalucía announced earlier on Thursday that it is considering implementing a regional curfew to curb the spread of coronavirus in the area.

Full details are expected to be published in the Official Gazette of the Junta (BOJA) on Friday, October 23.
