On day 2 we will go out again, but in time bands: all the details to know when exactly you can go out
After fifty days of confinement, the Spanish will be able to go back out on the street on May 2 for more than just basic outings, and that will finally include stretching your legs for a walk or doing some outdoor sports . Of course, subject to the contagion rate being kept at bay, as the Prime Minister insisted when he announced the four-stage deconflation plan.
However, contrary to what it seemed after that announcement, the exits will be carried out in time bands to prevent some areas from collapsing and making it impossible to maintain a safe distance from other people. Salvador Illa, Minister of Health, has appeared to give the details of these sections, stating that "we must not lose respect for the virus, it has not expired."
Walking and sport once a day
Healthcare has created two age ranges that will determine the hours at which they will be allowed to go out for these activities, walks and exercise, from midnight on May 1 to 2, once a day, for a maximum of one hour . In addition, you can walk accompanied by a maximum of one person with whom you habitually live, including caregivers, maintaining a safe distance from other citizens of at least one and a half meters. The time bands are as follows:
- Walks and sports practice: from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
- People over 70 years of age or dependents who require caregiver assistance: from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
- Children under 14 years accompanied by an adult: from 12:00 to 19:00
Regarding the distances:
- Walks: radius of the home of 1 kilometer
- Sports activity: within the municipality of residence
The time bands are thus arranged based on the activity to be carried out, ages or dependency. In municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants, these strips will not apply and any of these practices may be carried out between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. since, as indicated by the Minister, it is understood that there are no risks of crowds, as long as the safety distance.
The rest of the previously reported measures are still in force: extreme hygiene measures, including frequent hand washing or the use of masks, as well as the rule that a single father or mother accompany a maximum of three children, not being able to walk or Two parents play with their child or children. Sports practice, as long as it does not involve contact with other people.
