Spain allows to walk around without masks


The Spanish authorities have allowed their citizens to walk outdoors without medical masks due to a reduction in new cases of the coronavirus infection. This was reported by The Local newspaper.

The decision has been approved by the Ministry of Health and the Spanish government. It came into force on Saturday, 26 June. At the same time, the requirement to wear personal protective equipment remains in confined spaces, as well as when visiting crowded places and public events.

It is noted that the new rules apply throughout the kingdom, but the regions have been given the right to regulate it at their discretion. For example, the authorities in Andalusia and Asturias have recommended that residents wear masks when possible and outdoors. The social distance requirement has been maintained in full.

According to the latest figures, more than 3.7 million people in Spain have been infected with the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic. More than 47 percent of inhabitants have been vaccinated against the infection with at least one dose of the vaccine. More than 80 000 people died as a result of COVID-19.
