The resolution deals with measures such as the mandatory use of masks in ports and airports, the disembarkation of passengers by rows and establishes policies for cleaning and disinfecting internal aircraft and buses.
In his vote, Director Alex Campos, rapporteur for the matter, highlighted that “the flexibilities were only viable due to the maintenance of the use of personal protective masks in these environments”.
