The Government Delegation in Cantabria will distribute 130,000 masks among Cantabrian workers who use public transport

The Government Delegation in Cantabria, through the groups of Civil Protection and Red Cross volunteers and with the collaboration of the Security Forces and Bodies, will carry out this Tuesday and Wednesday, April 14 and 15, the distribution of the 130,000 masks that the Government of Spain has sent to the Autonomous Community to distribute among those people who resume their work activity and who use public transport to go to work.

The distribution of these protection elements, which in Cantabria will take place at train and bus stations in 17 municipalities, is framed within the strict limitation of movements in force since the start of the State of Alarm and is in line with the priorities and recommendations set by the Ministry of Health.

Thus, among them, the use of masks is recommended for those workers who cannot telecommute or move around in a private vehicle, bicycle or on foot and have to use public transport with a large influx of people.

In Cantabria, the distribution of masks among those who have to travel to their jobs in transport systems where it is more difficult to maintain the safety distance will be carried out by 13 groups of volunteers and in total of 35 points in the region.

The volunteers will be accompanied by members of the Security Forces and Corps to ensure security and avoid crowds during the delivery of the material.

The masks will be distributed, both this Tuesday and Wednesday, in the early hours of the morning and will take place in the main train and bus stations of Santander, Torrelavega, Camargo, El Astillero, Santa Cruz de Bezana, Piélagos, Cabezón de la Salt, Los Corrales de Buelna, Reinosa, San Vicente de la Barquera, Medio Cudeyo, Laredo, Val de San Vicente, Comillas, Suances, Santoña and Castro Urdiales.

The groups of volunteers of Civil Protection and Red Cross have collected the material throughout this Monday in the Government Delegation in Cantabria, where they have been staggered to avoid crowds.
