Friday September 23rd: The mandatory use of face masks is no longer a requirement in Peru
Cusco, September 23, 2022: In Peru, the number of vaccinated persons has increased and the number of cases has decreased. In response, the authorities have introduced new measures. The Ministry of Health has announced this week that the mandatory use of masks is no longer a requirement in Peru, except in the country’s hospitals, on overland public transport, and in the case of people with COVID-19 symptoms.
A vaccination certificate or the presentation of a negative test will continue to be requirements for people arriving from abroad, but the elimination of the mandatory use of face masks within the country will make the thousands of tourists that Peru is preparing to welcome this year and in 2023 more comfortable during their travels.
From today, the use of face masks will no longer be mandatory in most public spaces, including air transport. Therefore, their use will no longer be a requirement on domestic and international flights, and at Peru’s main tourism attractions.
