A change to the rules

Starting today, children in Spain under the age of 14 will be able to go out for accompanied walks within a one-kilometre radius of their homes between 9am and 9pm.

Youngsters who are 14 and over are not included in these provisions, but may go out to perform the same essential errands allowed for adults, such as trips to the supermarket.

The order states that children can be accompanied by any adult “who currently lives in the same home as the boy or girl, or who is employed to take care of the minor.” In the case of the latter, the person must have written authorisation.

Under the new rules, an adult can go out onto the street with as many as three children. Trips to parks that are open are allowed, but children can not play on the swings or go to “recreational or sporting areas.

The order adds that children presenting coronavirus symptoms must not leave their homes.
