The latest regulation was ruled last Sunday by Supreme Decree No. 015-2022-PCM, which established limit percentages for closed and open spaces activities. Alongside the capacity limits, the alert levels against COVID-19 will be eliminated.
Despite the new regulation, the usage of masks remains obligatory to circulate on public roads and in closed places. The code also emphasized that provinces' governments must ensure the commitment of that practices and social distancing and other rules to remain.
Another restriction to remain is to present the physical or virtual COVID-19 vaccination card among those over 18 years of age before entering stores in general and other institutions.
Supreme Decree No. 016-2022-PCM was published, declaring a State of National Emergency due to the circumstances that affect life and health due to COVID-19 and establishing new measures to restore social coexistence.
The document will also be required for entering churches, libraries, museums, cultural centers, art galleries, clubs, sports associations, hair salons, barbershops, spas, Turkish baths, saunas, thermal baths, gyms, notaries, and user service offices, among others.
Population over 40 years of age must also present the documentation as they have been boosted with the third dose of vaccines.
