I am starting the Camino Portugues (from Baiona) next week. Are masks going to be required anywhere?

Camino Primitivo (2022)

I fly into Madrid on Thursday, then taking the train to Oviedo on Friday and starting the Primitivo. Can anyone tell me what the current mask policies are in those areas?

I just saw that the QR code/spth entry requirements changed in the past couple of weeks, wondering if other requirements have eased as well.

In Spain they are required in public transport, pharmacies and any medical office. Except for that, they are not required anywhere.
…and they enforce it on public transportation. We were on a train from Madrid to Pamplona before starting the Camino. Train workers walked through the cars and made anyone not wearing a mask (we had ours on) put one on.
