The remaining three places where the mask will continue to be mandatory

On Tuesday, April 19th, 2022, the Valencian Community Council of Ministers meets and plans to eliminate the use of masks in Spain – a measure that will come into force when it is published in the BOE, predictably on April 20th.

However, the wearing of masks will continue to be mandatory in some places and the recommendation for its use in many closed spaces will be maintained.

Initially it will be withdrawn in schools, but it will remain in the following three areas:-

  • Hospitals
  • Nursing homes
  • Public transport  
  • Where its use is still recommended

    Experts from the Alerts Conference have advised the Government to recommend the “responsible use” of the mask in the vulnerable population, when a safety distance of one and a half meters cannot be kept and in places where ventilation id not so good, such as shopping malls, supermarkets, shops, cinemas, museums or bars.

  • They also advise that they be used in workplaces if there is no possibility of air circulation and if there is not enough space between employees.
