Argentina lifts mask rule for outdoor activities

Argentina’s health minister announced on Tuesday that the South American country is lifting mask warrants for outdoor events and gatherings.

The drop in infections and deaths from COVID-19 in recent weeks was instrumental in Health Minister Carla Vizzotti’s announcement.

Wearing a mask will remain compulsory indoors.

The dance halls and restaurants will open their doors at 50% of their capacity and whose customers will have to prove that they have been vaccinated 14 days before entering the establishment.

Just over 2,000 infections are recorded daily, down from the worst times of the pandemic when daily infection rates hit 30,000 across the country.

Minister Vizzotti also said that from October 1, mass events of more than 1,000 people with a capacity of 50% will be allowed, which will allow supporters to return to football stadiums.

In addition to lifting the use of the mask indoors, all travelers who come to Argentina for work will not have to self-quarantine.

The quarantine ordered in Argentina in March 2020 was particularly severe compared to other countries in the region, but did not prevent some 5.2 million people from being infected and the deaths of more than 114,000.
