New law makes face masks compulsory on Spanish beaches

The Spanish government has enacted a new nationwide law making it compulsory to wear face masks outdoors.

It includes all public places such as on beaches, all attractions and by hotel swimming pools.

It takes effect today and strengthens current rules which made face masks mandatory only if people were not able to distance themselves two metres away from others.

Current fines for not wearing a mask start at €100.

Andalucia has had a similar requirement in effect since last year.

Adults with medical conditions involving breathing difficulties are exempt.

Holidays to Spain for British travellers are still banned until at least mid-May.
