The beach mask rule has generated a good deal of controversy. | Josep Bagur Gomila
Balearic health minister Patricia Gómez has announced that the wearing of masks on beaches and by pools will not be obligatory in the Balearics if safe distance is maintained. There is to be the signing of an agreement on Wednesday which makes clear that the prevailing regulations are those of regional governments. Meanwhile, the regulation on social gathering applies to beaches as it does elsewhere - no more than six people from two households. This regulation also indicates that masks should be worn where there is more than one "cohabitation" group.
