MASKS remain mandatory in indoor public spaces in Spain despite the rule being officially scrapped for outdoor use across the country on Thursday, February 10. Here we will update you with further details.
Following a Royal Decree to scrap the mandatory use of masks outdoors in Spain, which was published in the Official State Gazette (BOE) on Wednesday, February 9, there has been some confusion as to whether the rule has been ditched for indoor use too.
So let’s clear things up.
On February 9 as part of the process outlined by Spain’s Health Minister Carolina Darias to abandon the outdoor mask mandate, the BOE was updated with the royal decree, which noted the above exceptions to the rule.
It must also be noted that the use of masks is still being recommended in crowds, according to Spanish guidelines.
