The Order SND/422/2020 published on 20 May, and in force on 21 May, establishes the obligation by the general population to use the mask to reduce the SARS-CoV2 transmission.
The justification is not only because of the high transmissibility of the virus,but also because of the ability of the masks to block the emission of infected droplets, which is very important when it is not possible to keep the safety distance.
In summary of the Order regulates the mandatory use of masks, as follows:
Any type of mask, preferably hygienic and surgical, covering nose and mouth.
WHEN AND WHERE?
