In the framework of the extension, between restrictions and openings, the circulation and permanence of people on the public road is no longer prohibited and the use of masks is now mandatory for all those who go out or expose themselves in public places.
Among the impositions, in these new 15 days of health fence, there remains the obligation for workers assigned to essential services, from the public and private sectors, to be accompanied by declarations and service passes.
