The Ministry emphasizes that the mask is an essential element in the control of virus transmission: if the infected person wears a mask, the expulsion of the virus to the environment is very limited. And in the same way, if the people close to the infected also wear a mask, their exposure to the virus decreases significantly.
If people close to the infected also wear a mask, their exposure to the virus decreases significantly
In this context, it is recalled that there are situations where the risk of exposure to the virus is very low. This occurs, for example, in outdoor spaces as long as a safe distance from other people can be maintained. In these settings, and with epidemiological data at a low level and high vaccination coverage, it is possible to stop using the mask.
Finally, the Ministry of Health emphasizes that the mask is still mandatory in all other circumstances, especially in closed, poorly ventilated places and where the minimum distance of 1.5 meters between people is not guaranteed.
