As of today, Sunday the 21st of June, the State of Alarm is removed. This means that the restrictions with regards to movement between Spain’s Autonomous Regions are no longer in place.

USE OF MASKS

For everyone from the age of 6 years it’s obligatory to wear a mask in the following situations:

  • Public road or open spaces where it isn’t possible to maintain an interpersonal distance of 1,5 m.
  • Closed spaces where it isn’t possible to maintain an interpersonal distance of 1,5 m
  • Public transport – always
  • Private transport: when not all occupants of the vehicle are from the same household.
  • Failure to comply with the obligation to wear masks will be considered a minor offence and sanctioned with a fine of up to one hundred euros.

Working

With regards to work, ‘teletrabajo’ or working from home remains the preferred method for at least 2 more months in all cases where this is reasonably possible, e.g. when this was possible during confinement it should be continued for as many employees as possible.

Health & Safety regulations different situations: work, shops, schools, hotels etc. (Valencia region)

The planned measures will continue taking into account the minimum safety distance, which should be 1.5 meters between people. If the distance cannot be guaranteed, the use of a mask and hydroalcoholic gel continues to be prescribed to disinfect the hands. In the ‘new normal’ the capacity in closed spaces will be 75%, as proposed by the president, Ximo Puig.

In spaces where common activities are carried out, constant cleaning of premises, washing of work clothes, constant ventilation of spaces and facilities, payment by credit card and other measures already implemented during the de-escalation phases will continue to be recommended. .

Additional measures are foreseen in shopping centres, hotel and restaurant establishments, religious worship spaces and sports facilities, which will be detailed in the decree. for the celebration of acts of religious worship, and for swimming pools for sports use and sports facilities. The measures provided for in this agreement may be completed by specific security plans, organizational protocols and guides adapted to each activity sector, which will be approved by the competent administrations.

Wedding ceremonies can be carried out in closed spaces as long as they do not exceed 75% of the capacity. In the teaching and university field, the maximum number of face-to-face students will be sought, without a mask if there is a guaranteed safety distance in the classrooms. The pools may open to 75% of the capacity and, if necessary, by appointment. For the beaches, removable walkways are foreseen to guarantee the safety distance.

The entities that promote leisure and free time activities have the obligation to have a contingency plan or a procedure for surveillance, identification and suspicion of cases, which will follow the sanitary criteria of the protocols and preventive measures of the COVID-19 and that it will be adapted to the project and the space where the activity will take place.

Airports

Update 19.6.2020 As announced by the Health Minister.
Passengers will be subjected to three tests: they will have to fill out a form, their temperature will be taken and their general physical appearance will be monitored visually. If one of the three gives reason for doubt, they will be transferred to a medical professional for further testing upon arrival in Spain.

Measures that will be in force at all AENA Airports.

* Information signs located at different points of the airport facilities (check-in desks, security filters, elevators, information points, gateways to enter aircraft, boarding gates, toilets, etc.).
* Hydroalcoholic gel dispensers.
* Distance marks.
* Messages on digital screens.
* Protective screens and public address messages that inform passengers from time to time, for example, of the need to wear a mask at all times or to maintain personal distance in the different airport facilities.

Since May 15th, all passengers who come from abroad have passed a temperature control that, from July 1, will be automated with thermal imaging cameras due to the increase in traffic at airports.

In addition, the Passenger Location Card (PLC), the record for the location of the passenger that is now completed on the plane and delivered by hand at the temperature control, will be digitized to also contribute to more fluid transit through the airport.

The airport manager, Aena, will collaborate with the Foreign Health Ministry in these tasks of sanitary surveillance and control by signing an agreement between both institutions, which establishes the terms of said collaboration.
