Seville, Apr 6 (EFE) .- The Junta de Andalucía has shown this Tuesday its opposition to the use of the mask to sunbathe on the beach and in swimming pools and is committed to the guideline that it implemented last summer, according to which it is Mandatory to walk along the shore but not to be in the umbrella in groups that do not exceed 6 people.
The spokesman for the Executive, Elías Bendodo, has defended at a press conference that forcing the use of a mask to sunbathe is “a clear way to scare away tourism” and has demanded “common sense” and that the central government rectify “urgently”.
“The Government of Spain cannot be more papist than the Pope and demand that to sunbathe you have to wear a mask, from Andalusia we do not understand this criterion,” said the spokesman for the Executive.
He has described the measure as “nonsense”, has highlighted the commitment to the tourism sector and has assured that in Andalusia they want to continue applying last year’s guideline.
When asked if Andalusia would allow not to use it even if the Government did not rectify, Bendodo replied that “if the Government has been correct in something, it is in the rectifications”, so he hopes that it will also be done now.
He recalled that last year there was no state regulation and the Andalusian Government regulated it in the Official Gazette of the Board (BOJA).
