In this area when and where should the mask be worn?
In the yellow zone, respiratory protection devices (better known as masks) must be worn in all indoor places other than your home, including public transport (airplanes, trains, buses) and in all places outdoors.
However, the obligation is not foreseen for:
– children under 6 years of age;
– people who, due to their disability or pathology, cannot wear the mask;
– operators or people who, to assist a person exempt from the obligation, cannot in turn wear a mask (for example: who has to speak in the LIS with a deaf person).
Furthermore, it is not mandatory to wear a mask, both outdoors and indoors:
– while doing sports;
– while eating or drinking, in the places and times in which it is allowed;
– when, due to the characteristics of the places or the factual circumstances, isolation from non-cohabiting people is continuously guaranteed.
As regards the performance of the work activity, the mask is mandatory in the situations provided for by the specific sector protocols. However, the use of masks is strongly recommended even inside private homes, in the presence of non-cohabiting people.
Is it mandatory to use a specific type of mask?
No, “community” masks, disposable, washable, possibly self-produced, can also be used, as long as they are in multilayer materials suitable for providing an adequate barrier and, at the same time, guaranteeing comfort and breathability, shape and adherence adequate to cover the face, from chin up above the nose.
