The wearing of face masks in Spain is compulsory

When speaking yesterday, Health Minister Salvador Illa said that the wearing of face masks would be compulsory until the coronavirus is defeated.
Despite Spain’s state of emergency scheduled to end on June 21st, Illa said the wearing of face masks would “remain in place until we permanently defeat the virus, which is when we have an effective treatment or vaccine against it.”
These remarks follow from Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s comments that everyone in Spain over the age of six will have to wear face masks in public places as long as it is impossible to maintain the safety distance” of 1.5 to 2 meters.
Anyone caught not wearing a face mask in enclosed public spaces or on public transport is liable to pay a 100€ fine.
