The Spanish health minister has just announced that from Wednesday the 8th of February, face masks will no longer be mandatory on public transport!

With the exception of hospitals and Pharmacies, that will still require masks to be worn!

green spark,

The same is also true in France. However since it is winter and yearly influenza ie la Grippe still prevails most of us older folk have had their booster Covid shot ( my 5th), yearly anti Grippe shot and continue to wear a mask in public. Thus we continue hoping to protect ourselves and others.
 
Travelling back to the UK from Santiago on Friday I was surprised to discover that masks were still required on the bus to the airport and for the entire duration of the flight to London. During my walk from SJPDP the only time one had been required was on visiting a pharmacy.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

Congratulations on finishing your Camino !!

I was very pleased to meet you in SJPP.

Not down here ; my sense is that things do vary regionally, and certain towns/cities versus countryside.

I did see over the course of 2021 and 2022 in Spain that towns and pueblos that had been harder hit by the pandemic than others were more masked-up than elsewhere.

Only a small minority here are in masks, though my doctor is still demanding it -- the clinic does have a history of geriatric care though, so it's likely patient-driven.
