Surprise announcement.

If until now the Government had the lead in announcing the arrival of vaccines, now it also does so in that of the progressive disappearance of masks.

Pedro Sánchez, immersed in an intense Catalan agenda in the run-up to the granting of pardons - which are expected for Tuesday 22 - has announced that from next Saturday, June 26, masks will not be necessary in outdoor spaces.

"We are going to propose to Spanish society that the mask is not mandatory in free spaces as of next Saturday, June 26," was the announcement of the Chief Executive during his speech at the annual meeting of the Círculo de Economía in Barcelona.

The government's decision comes after up to 10 communities asked the Executive to move towards this scenario.

The end of masks abroad was not only a request from the autonomies, but also from different economic sectors that had demanded it because they considered it a milestone that could boost tourism and economic reactivation.
