In particular, up to four people are allowed to travel together in the car today – the driver and three more.
However, more people are allowed if there are parents with children (if children are over 18, ID or other official document required) and someone who needs assistance from a second passenger to get around.
In addition, the use of masks is mandatory unless parents, those living with their children, and first and second degree relatives are in the same vehicle.
In all other cases, it is mandatory for the driver and passengers to wear masks, otherwise fines may be imposed in case of inspection.
