COVID 19 information

Since the entry into force of Royal Decree 463/2020 of 14 March, which declared a state of alarm due to the health crisis caused by Covid-19, we have experienced a whirlwind of social and organisational changes that have been a challenge to adapt to.

The agreement declaring the end of this situation was published on 5 July 2023, after the World Health Organisation determined that Covid-19 no longer constituted a public health emergency of international concern, becoming an established and persistent health problem that requires other surveillance and control mechanisms.

As it is no longer a health emergency, the exceptional measures that applied to it have been repealed, but it is important to highlight that it continues to be a relevant public health issue, so it is important to maintain a series of recommendations to protect especially the most vulnerable people, and to facilitate the control and monitoring of this disease.

These recommendations, based on the culture of responsibility which we have acquired over this time, consist of:

  • Use masks in case of respiratory symptoms, especially in shared spaces.
  • Maintain proper hand hygiene, especially if you have symptoms and share equipment or tools.
  • Maintain as much as possible adequate ventilation of spaces.
