Talking about the current legal requirements that mean everyone has to wear a mask in public in Mallorca. You can contact us on majorcamallorcapodcast@gmail.com or join the https://www.facebook.com/groups/MajorcaMallorca/ to join in the fun. We make this podcast in conjunction with the Majorca Daily Bulletin, you can see their website https://www.majorcadailybulletin.comTaken from the Majorca Daily Bulletin website: the current law on face masksThe Government has changed its mind on the rules for face masks, yet again, according to Health Minister, Patricia Gómez.CompulsoryEveryone over the age of 6 must wear a mask at all times on public roads, in open and enclosed spaces for public use and in public service areas.Masks are compulsory at work, in both public and private firms, if social distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be guaranteed or when there is a possibility of contact with people who don’t live in the same home and social distancing is impossible.At the entrances and exits to cultural and sports shows, the use of a mask is obligatory, except when eating or drinking.Weddings are restricted to 250 people outdoors and 150 indoors and rehearsals and performances of choirs and bands are restricted to 30 people and everyone must wear a mask except for those playing wind instruments.Passengers in a private car must wear masks unless they are all living at the same address and it is compulsory for Taxi Drivers and all passengers to wear a mask.Not CompulsoryIt is not necessary to wear a face mask at the beach, at swimming pools, when playing sports or wind instruments or in the countryside and a mask will only be necessary on promenades next to the sea if there are a lot of people."During walks next to the coast and in ventilated places, if you can keep the required social distance of 1.5 metres a mask is not necessary, but if promenades are very crowded it will be necessary to wear a mask,” said Minister Gómez.It is not necessary to wear a face mask whilst eating or drinking at a restaurant or bar.Those under 16 years of age don’t have to wear a mask when they’re participating in regular activities with a stable group of children, such as at summer schools or camps.ExceptionsThose with any type of respiratory illness or difficulty which may be aggravated by the use of a face mask, those who do not have autonomy to remove the mask, due to disability or dependency and those with behavioural problems which make wearing a mask unfeasible are exempt from the ruling.“A face mask is not required in cases of force majeure or a situation of need, or when due to the very nature of the activities of the use of the mask is incompatible," said Minister Gómez, who defended the tightening of the rules for face masks.“With the recovery of Social, Tourist and Economic activity combined and the increase in Covid-19 cases at National and International level face masks are another measure of prevention and security and have proven to be very effective in slowing down the spread of the virus,” she said.
