Health Minister Carolina Darias confirmed on Thursday that face masks will no longer be required in indoor public spaces.
Masks will remain compulsory on public transport, in hospitals and in nursing homes.
And while some regions such as Madrid and Catalonia, are worried the rule won’t be changed in time for the Easter holidays, other areas such as Andalusia and Extremadura, think the rule is being lifted so soon.
The rule is set to be changed ahead of the busy holiday season as sun-loving Brits are eager to return to their favourite holiday hotspot.
