In the rest of the country, free movement is now permitted within each jurisdiction, provided that social distancing rules are adhered to. Social gatherings of up to 10 people are also allowed. In most parts of Argentina, you are still required to cover your nose and mouth with a facemask or other garment whenever you go out in public. There are various exceptions at a local level. In the city of Buenos Aires, some local businesses (such as bookshops, flower and clothes shops) have started reopening, allowing people to go out to make non-essential purchases based on the last digit of their ID card or passport. Those ending in even numbers are allowed to go out on even numbered dates and those ending in odd numbers are allowed to go out on odd numbered dates, Monday to Friday. From 8 June, you are also allowed to go out for exercise (running, walking, cycling), accompanied by just one other person, between 8pm and 8am. You do not need to cover your nose and mouth while you are exercising. There may be additional local restrictions. For example, the government of the City of Buenos Aires has urged those over the age of 70 not to leave their homes at all during the quarantine. You should check what measures have been introduced in your location. You could be subject to a financial penalty if you do not abide by local regulations.
