Madrid expands mask-wearing rules to curb covid-19 contagion

MADRID, July 28 (Reuters) - Madrid will make face masks compulsory everywhere at all times as part of a package of measures aimed at preventing coronavirus infections, regional leader Isabel Diaz Ayuso said on Tuesday.

Bars must close at 1 a.m, and gatherings at outdoor restaurant terraces will be capped at 10 people, she said. The region recommends private gatherings at home remain below 10 people but that is not a legal obligation.

Additionally, she asked the central government to increase checks at Madrid’s airport. (Reporting by Belén Carreño and Inti Landauro; writing by Nathan Allen Editing by Ingrid Melander)
