Rules and Covid-19 protocol
Individual and public safety is a priority, which is why participants must comply with current Catalonian safety measures at all times. However, in addition to participating in any event organised by BioMARató, we will take specific measures into account.
- If you decide to participate on an individual basis in accordance with current legislation, please take particular account of this:
- No more than six people are allowed to stand in a crowd; a distance of 2 metres between people is required.
- If you have symptoms that are consistent with Covid-19, please contact the public health system and stay at home.
- It is compulsory for all people over six years of age to wear a mask, regardless of whether they maintain their physical safety distance. People can only take off their mask when diving, snorkelling or freediving.
- Consider the local, regional or Catalonian lockdown limits in force at the time of organising the trip.
