DETAILS FOR THE EASE OF RESTRICTIONS FOR ADULTS

javeamigos.com | DETAILS OF EASE OF RESTRICTIONS FOR ADULTS

The long-awaited moment has arrived. From tomorrow Saturday 2nd May, adults and young people over the age of 14 can leave their homes for a period of physical activity and walks, albeit under strict control, within certain time slots and only once a day. Health Minister Salvador Illa announced the details of the relaxation of the confinement restrictions put in place on March 14th in a press conference on Thursday evening and this morning the Government has released the appropriate Official State Gazette which give more information.

The BOE states that the evolution of the health crisis forces the Government to adapt continuously and adopt specific measures to ensure efficient crisis management. The purpose of the issue of the BOE is to clarify how those aged 14 and over can return to oudoor physical activity which includes non-professional individual sports and daily walks.

The day has been divided into different time slots from 6.00am until 11.00pm with the children's authorisation to leave the house brought in last weekend modified to accommodate a specific period of time.

Article 1 states that the BOE has been issued to establish the conditions for those aged 14 and above to leave the house for non-professional physical activity during the State of Alarm.

Article 2 states that those aged 14 years and above can engage in non-professional physical activity that doesn't require contact with third parties and walks once a day and within the time slots outlined in Article 5. The walks can be done with one person who lives in the same household and should not be more than one kilometre from the house. The non-professional physical activity must be individual and there is no limit on the distance so long as the person remains within the municipality of residence. People who are symptomatic or are in self-isolation due to a diagnosis fo COVID 19 or having been in contact with someone symptomatic or diagnosed with COVID-19 as well elderly residents of social health centres  cannot leave the house. These activities are in addition to those generally permitted in the State of Alarm declared on March 14th.

Article 3 states that appropriate measures must be taken to avoid infection, including social-distancing of at least two metres with third parties and the avoidance of busy spaces and areas which could encourage crowding. The physical activity must be continuous and unnecessary stops of public roads and spaces must be avoided and if they are required due to the physical condition of the person carrying out the activity, it must be only for a time strictly necessary. All prevention and hygiene measures against COVID-19 indicated by the health authorities must be complied with. Local authorites may facilitate the allocation of public spaces in favour of those who walk and ride bicycles, in that order of priority.

Article 4 states that the physical activity and walk may be carried out on any road or space reserved for public use, including authorised natural spaces and green areas, providing that the limits established in this order are respected. Access to closed sports facilities will not be permitted and vehicles or public transport cannot be used to travel to public areas to carry out the physical activity.

Article 5 outlines the time slots that have been established for the activities permitted:

06:00-10:00

Individual physical activity and walks for people aged between 14 and 70. Walks should be within a distance of no more than 1km from the house. Sports should be done within the municipality of residence.

10:00-12:00

People who need to be accompanied for reasons of need and people over the age of 70 (who can be accompanied by a person from the same household aged between 14 and 70).

12:00-19:00

Children accompanied by one responsible adult for a maximum of one hour and a distance of no more than 1km from the house.

19:00-20:00

People who need to be accompanied for reasons of need and people over the age of 70 (who can be accompanied by a person from the same household aged between 14 and 70).

20:00-23:00

Individual physical activity and walks for people aged between 14 and 70. Walks should be within a distance of no more than 1km from the house. Sports should be done within the municipality of residence.

A modification to a previous order detailing the conditions for children under the age of 14 to leave the house, issued on April 25th, means the permission for up to three youngsters plus one responsible adult to leave the house for a daily walk for a maximum of one hour and within a distance of no more than one kilometre from the house now falls within the time slot of between 12:00 and 19:00.

The order will take effect at 00:00 on Saturday 2nd May and will remain effective for the entire duration of the State of Alarm and its possible extensions.

This order is for exercise and walks only and do not affect the existing restrictions put in place when the State of Alarm was declared in mid-March regarding leaving the house to go to the supermarket for essential goods, going to the chemist or for taking dogs out for their "necessary movements".
