In Chile, beaches are national assets for public use and so they therefore belong to everyone. Along with guaranteeing free access to our beaches, we have also issued guidelines for making sure that access is safe, thereby reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Use of masks
At all times, except in the water or when a person is not moving around and is at least two meters from others.
Frequent hand washing and hand sanitizer use
Wash your hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer frequently.
At all times, beachgoers must maintain social distancing of at least one meter from others in their group. Towels, lounge chairs and chairs belonging to a single group must also be placed at least one meter apart.
People may remove their masks on the beach when they are not moving around and are at least two meters from others.
Social distancing between groups
A social distance of five meters is recommended.
Avoid group sports
Choose sports you can do alone or with the people in your group while respecting social distancing guidelines. If you are going to use sporting equipment, it is important to disinfect it before and after use.
Avoid sharing beach items, especially among children
Bring your own items.
Teach children not to use toys that belong to others or that they find on the beach.
Favor established businesses
We suggest that you purchase food and other items you may need from established businesses.
Avoid eating on the beach
Try not to eat on the beach. Bring your own water bottle so you do not have to share with others.
Do not leave trash on the beach
Leave your trash in designated containers, especially when changing and/or discarding your disposable mask.
Avoid crowded beaches
Favor beaches with fewer people and avoid crowds.
If you experience symptoms, stay at home
Go to a healthcare center for a PCR test immediately.
