New end of alarm measures for each region

Spain News

MADRID – After six months, the state of alarm in Spain is coming to an end. Furthermore, from Sunday May 9 at 00:00 there will no longer be any restrictions from the Spanish government. View in this article the full overview of the end of alarm measures for all Spanish regions. 

Despite the fact that the measures arising from the state of alarm have ceased, the masking obligation continues to apply throughout Spain. Since 21 May last year, it has been mandatory throughout Spain for everyone to wear a mouth mask in public indoor spaces as well as in the open air. However, only sunbathing on the beach or at a swimming pool is excluded from this rule. Additionally, people who play sports or people who cannot tolerate a mouth mask for medical reasons do not have to wear one.
