The president of the Generalitat Quim Torra has announced at the control session in the Parliament that the mask will be mandatory in Catalonia , even when the safety distance can be maintained. The measure takes effect tomorrow.

The Minister of Health , Salvador Illa, has positively valued the measure. "It does not seem bad to me, if the Government considers it appropriate, to reinforce this measure," he pointed out.

In declarations to Catalunya Ràdio collected by Efe, Illa has recalled, however, that, as a general rule, "the use of the mask is already mandatory" except in special cases by medical prescription. But "if in Catalonia they want to go one step further, I have nothing to say", he added.

The Catalan Minister of Health, Alba Vergés , proposed this Tuesday that the use of face masks in Catalonia is always mandatory in public spaces and in the workplace, even if safety distances are maintained, a decision that will be approved today within the framework of the PROCICAT .

Asked about his relationship with the Govern, Illa said that "there has always been good coordination" and stressed that he has maintained "a very fluid relationship" with all those responsible for health in the autonomous communities.

In this sense, he defended that "the constitutional framework has been a strength" in facing the crisis, since it has facilitated "permanent coordination elements".
