From June 26, Spain will cancel the mandatory wearing of protective masks on the street. This was stated by the Prime Minister of the country Pedro Sanchez during a speech in Barcelona, El Mundo reports.
"Our streets, our faces will regain their familiar appearance over the next few days. We will enjoy life on the street again without masks," Sanchez said.
This government decision was made after 10 communities asked the authorities to cancel the mask regime. A few weeks ago, the head of the Center for the Coordination of Medical Notifications and Emergencies, Fernando Simon, already hinted that masks on the streets may soon become optional.
Meanwhile, next week, Germany will open to tourists from Ukraine who have been vaccinated against coronavirus. At the same time, only those who have been vaccinated with the vaccine from the list on the website of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut will have the right to enter.
"Starting from June 25, 2021, entry for citizens fully vaccinated against Covid-19 from Ukraine to Germany will be possible again under certain conditions. Fully vaccinated citizens will be able to enter Germany to visit relatives and friends, as well as for tourist purposes," the message says.
