Spain set to end mandatory face masks indoors after 2 years

Madrid, Apr 19 (EFE).- Spain is set to approve on Tuesday a decree that will end mandatory face masks indoors after nearly two years.

Under the Royal Decree, Spaniards will no longer be required to wear face coverings indoors starting from Wednesday, except on public transport, health centers and in nursing homes.

The mandatory use of face masks has been in force in Spain since May 20, 2020, when the government imposed the rule to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Spain lifted the mandatory use of face masks outdoors in early February as part of a plan to gradually ease coronavirus restrictions.

Although face masks will no longer be mandatory indoors, its “responsible use” is recommended in public venues such as cinemas, theaters, nightlife venues and museums.

Workplaces will be able to decide whether to keep face masks a rule indoors. EFE
