Overview: Spanish Government regulates “new normal life” after coronavirus pandemic, including mandatory masks in public spaces.
The Council of Ministers approved a Royal Decree-Law on urgent prevention, contention and coordination measures to tackle the health crisis caused by COVID-19.
These measures will govern once the state of emergency and the de-escalation process is over (on 21 June).
The law approved will remain in force until the government makes a grounded declaration of the end of the health crisis, after listening to the regional health authorities at the Inter-territorial Council of the National Health System and following a prior report from the Health Alerts and Emergencies Coordination Centre.
The law includes regulation for prevention, early detection and a prepared health system.
