21 June 2020 marked the end of the state of alarm declared by the Government of Spain in response to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Since then, Spain has returned to normal, restarting its economic, social and cultural activities, guided by a set of general prevention, containment and safety measures which will remain in place until the pandemic is over.

Everybody can now enjoy Spain’s cultural attractions again. Starting on 21 June, free movement returns throughout Spain, international borders open with European countries in the Schengen area with a similar epidemiological situation (except Portugal, which will reopen on 1 July), and travellers from other countries arriving in Spain will no longer have to remain in quarantine for 14 days.

Prevention measures

A set of general prevention measures have also been established and will remain in place until the pandemic is over, in order to ensure everyone’s safety. These include compulsory masks for everyone aged 6 and over in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors, when a minimum safe distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained. This rule will not apply to people with respiratory diseases or problems, or who have disabilities or are in a situation of dependency which means they cannot remove a mask.

Museums, heritage sites, libraries and archives, establishments offering public performances and other leisure activities must take the necessary measures to control gatherings of people and ensure minimum safe distancing, and provide appropriate hygiene measures where this is not possible. They must also comply with regulations on maximum occupancy, prevention and preparation of spaces as determined by the competent bodies.

The same rules apply to hotels and tourist accommodation, which must take the organisational measures needed to prevent crowding in common areas, and to ensure both guests and workers can maintain the minimum safe distance of 1.5 metres. When this is not possible, preventive hygiene measures must be required in order to reduce the risk of contagion. Shops and other retail establishments, bars and restaurants must also comply with these requirements and safety measures.

Preventive healthcare recommendations

Finally, it is advisable to always follow the prevention measures recommended by the healthcare authorities to protect yourselves from the coronavirus:

-    wash your hands often with soap and water, or use alcohol-based hand sanitiser;
-    cover your mouth and nose with the crook of your elbow when coughing or sneezing, or use disposable tissues and throw them away safely immediately after use;
-    avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands;
-    maintain a minimum safe distance of 1.5 metres from other people;
-    use a mask in enclosed public spaces, and on the street or in outdoor spaces if you cannot maintain the minimum safe distance of 1.5 metres.
