The UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has updated its travel advice to Spain, following its government’s latest Covid-19 update.
The Spanish government has approved a measure to remove the requirement to wear face masks in pharmacies and health and care centres – marking the end of mask-wearing requirements in the country.
Over the past two years, Spain has been retracting the requirements in different spaces. Firstly, the need to wear a face covering in public, then on public transport and now in healthcare settings.
The FCDO published on its website: “The Spanish government has declared an end to the health crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and has lifted all compulsory requirements to wear face coverings.”
This effectively marks the end of all remaining Covid-19 restrictions in Spain in time for the summer holiday season.
