Masks are required again on planes and airports this Friday (25)

The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) decided on Tuesday night (22) to determine the mandatory use of masks on planes and airports in Brazil. The measure begins to be worth this Friday (25).

Previously, the obligation was in force between 2020 and August 17, 2022. The directors justified the suspension, three months ago, that the then pandemic scenario allowed the mandatory use to be converted into an individual protection measure.

Due to the significant increase in cases of Covid-19 in recent weeks, Anvisa has determined that the use of masks is mandatory both inside airport terminals and planes and in means of transport (such as buses) and other establishments located in these areas.

Masks must be fitted to the face, covering the nose, chin and mouth, minimizing spaces that allow air and respiratory droplets to enter or exit. In addition, inside the aircraft and other areas of the terminals (such as food courts), it will only be allowed to remove the mask for hydration and food.

Exceptions to the rule are children under 3 years of age, people with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, sensory impairments or any other disabilities that prevent them from making proper use of the protection.

From the next 25th, ANVISA determined the use of masks in the dependencies of the country’s airports and inside the planes.
