COVID Camino del Norte Border problems?


New Member
Year of past OR future Camino
Just curious if anyone has walked the Camino del norte recently and what your experience was, specifically crossing regional borders. Was hoping to go from San Sebastian go Oviedo then switch to the primitive route later this month.

Also I noticed quite a few Albergues were closed but am fine staying in hostels. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Note: I'm in Barcelona now and have a U.S. and Spanish passport. Unsure which to use if I get stopped
