According to the European Times’ Official wechat account “West News”, Spaniards will not be allowed to wear masks on the streets from February 10, but they will still be required to wear masks at large outdoor events if they cannot keep a safe distance of 1.5 meters between people.Carolina Darias, Spain’s health minister, said the latest measures had been submitted to an interregional committee, which approved a proposal to make masks mandatory at large outdoor events, especially in multiplayer sports such as football and basketball.The interregional Committee believes that the removal of mandatory face masks on the streets is in line with the will of the people, but the prevalence of the Omicron strain has increased uncertainty about the direction of the epidemic.The special feature of the new mask decree is that it allows the minister of Health to make “appropriate amendments” to the decree without having to issue it in the form of a royal decree, meaning it could change at any time, but there is currently a “green light” for people to take to the streets without wearing masks.
