Filling out your Affidavit step by step:
Note: In the case of people with an illness other than COVID-19 which prevents them from breathing with the surgical mask, they must use a face shield and a medical certificate must be presented indicating the illness they suffer from and the medical recommendation that they should not use such personal protective equipment.
Face masks need to be in optimal condition and must be worn properly. Wet, dirty, or damaged masks must be replaced as soon as possible.
Touristic activities, cultural and creative attractions, libraries, swimming pools, movies and theaters, casinos and others will be enforcing the safety protocols and may be operating with lower capacity and restricted schedules.
