Protect yourself this summer!

This summer, besides protecting yourself from heat waves, you also will need to follow the protective measures for preventing the spread of COVID-19: respecting social distances, washing your hands frequently and wearing a mask whenever necessary.​


Beaches and bathing

The 2020 summer bathing season in Barcelona coincides with the lockdown exit process for Covid-19 and includes special measures to control capacity at the beaches and guarantee the necessary safety distance.
