We want to report that, after analysis with @MinSaludCol and the Epidemiological Committee, we decided that in the municipalities and cities of the country that have exceeded 70% of the population with a complete vaccination schedule, the measure of the use of face masks in public spaces is lifted.

“We celebrate the President’s announcement. It is based on the same scientific evidence, surely, that we have. It was logical and pertinent at this time of the pandemic.”

Claudia affirmed in a statement published on the website of the Mayor’s Office of Bogotá.

Bogotá will be the first city to eliminate the mandatory use of masks in open spaces. As of March 1, those who are vaccinated with the complete schedule and do not have symptoms will be able to be outdoors without a mask.
