The Government allows you to go out to exercise and take walks since last May 2. This was one of the first reliefs from the confinement that phase 0 of the de-escalation brought with it. Today, with the entire country in phase 1 or 2 of the process, the rules for walking and playing sports are a bit different.
Madrid has been in phase 1 since May 25, so that Madrid residents enjoy a greater margin of mobility within the region. However, it is still not possible to go for a walk at any time or with an unlimited number of people.
The rules of the walks and the sport attend to criteria of distance, duration, hours and company.
In phase 0 it was only possible to practice outdoor sports individually, without contact with third parties, only once a day and within the municipality of residence. Phase 1 enables non-contact group sport, maintaining an interpersonal distance of two meters. The rest of the rules remain the same.
You can exercise with family, friends or neighbors without having to live together. These trainings are still subject to the different schedules established by the Government.
During this stage of the de-escalation you can make use of the open sports facilities (without roof or walls), as well as practice sport fishing and hunting.
There is also a green light to walk in groups of up to 10 people who do not have to live at the same address.
Although the law does not explicitly abolish the restriction of the distance of walks within a kilometer around the house, the spatial limitation is eliminated in practice now that it is possible to travel throughout the Community to visit relatives, have a drink in a terrace or go shopping without an appointment.
These confinement relief measures may not be enjoyed by people with symptoms or who are quarantined because they are infected with coronavirus.
Both the walks and the outdoor sports of phase 1 are regulated by the time slots reserved for different age groups that were defined for phase 0.
In other words: activities such as shopping, sitting on a terrace and meeting other people can be done at any time of the day, but walks and sports must take place at the set times.
There is no other time limit imposed than that stipulated in these sections: the duration can be up to four hours.
The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has specified that there will be no time slots in towns with less than 5,000 inhabitants, since in these towns there is no risk of crowds. Small municipalities will, however, have to abide by the other limitations detailed by the Government.
As far as possible, keep the interpersonal distance between 1.5 and 2 meters during walks and individual training. In fact, the use of a mask in closed and open public spaces is mandatory when this interpersonal separation cannot be preserved.
