Still requiring Covid proof in some regions


As the frequency of infections drops sharply in Spain, more and more restrictions are being lifted, but there is still a requirement for Covid certificates in eight of the country's 17 autonomous regions. On Thursday 10 February, the ban on outdoor mouth protection, which was introduced in Spain on 22 December, will be lifted. It will only be required outside in the event that a safety distance of at least 1.5 meters cannot be maintained. In addition, the health authorities have agreed to allow up to 85 percent filled outdoor arenas at sporting events. 

Many autonomous regions have also begun to reduce their restrictions, especially with regard to curfews at night. However, there is still a requirement for Covid certificates in almost half, to be allowed in bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The regions that retain the burden of proof for the time being are Andalusia, Aragon, the Balearic Islands, Galicia, La Rioja, Murcia, Navarre and Valencia. The regional government in the Balearic Islands has warned that the requirement will probably be lifted next week.
