Spain relieves required mask-wearing outdoors


He revealed that the government is going to bring up the suggestion next Thursday at the cabinet gathering.


He told a business meeting in Barcelona “This will be the last weekend with facemasks outside, because from June 26 we will no longer have to wear them in open spaces outdoors”.

Spain has had severe regulations concerning facemask use for just over a year, with everyone aged six and over being forced to wear them (unless they are doing exercise), even at places where a two-meter safe social distance can be watched.
