Spain is one of the most popular holidaying spots for Britons. The Covid pandemic, however, has made flying to Spain for a holiday harder than ever.
Holidaymakers who can prove their full vaccination status can enter the country.
But once in Spain, they face more Covid rules, with face masks again compulsory indoors and outdoors.
The move has been described as “temporary” by the Spanish Government, with many hoping the new rule will be lifted in time for Spring and the influx of tourists.
But it’s not all doom and gloom, with the mask mandate having exception.
The Spanish health minister, Carolina Darias, has named beaches as an exception to the new face mask rule.
Britons jetting off to Spain for a holiday will not have to wear masks when lounging on the sand.
The exception is contingent on the social distancing rule being observed.
There are other exceptions to the face mask rule.
The new rule states everyone over the age of six years old must wear a face mask outdoors even if social distancing (1.5 metres between people) is being observed.
It is mandatory to wear a mask “in any outdoor space for public use or that is open to the public”, which includes everywhere from parks to streets.
Health minister Carolina Darias said: “Every time we go out, we have to
leave with our mask on.”
This applies to both locals and tourists, so holidaymakers will want to make sure they abide by the rule.
