The Spanish region of Valencia has brought back the mandatory use of masks in health centres due to the rise in respiratory infections. The Mail has more.
The Spanish Government hasn’t made any announcement about the return of obligatory mask wearing but regions such as Valencia – where tourist hotspots Benidorm and Alicante are located – are already imposing their own rules again.
Valencia’s health department has today implemented the mandatory use of masks in health centres due to the rise in respiratory infections.
This preventive measure is considered relevant given the incidence in the Valencian community, with a rate of 1,501 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
The objective is to stop infections and protect vulnerable people.
The department is also relaying the message that health centres will vaccinate against flu and COVID-19 starting next Monday without the need for an appointment.
