The use of a mask in public transport, taxis, planes, Ubers and pharmacies will no longer be mandatory, confirmed the Minister of Health, Marta Temido, at a press conference after the meeting of the Council of Ministers.

“There is a “stable trend of cases” and conditions to end the mandatory use of protection in these situations, although this remains in the case of establishments that provide health care," she explained.

The Government has also extended the state of alert in the country due to the pandemic until September 30.
