But no judgment was rendered yesterday and it is now expected today and should come into effect on either Wednesday or Thursday this week.

An official notice must be published by the government in its government gazette.

Until then, holidaymakers and locals should continue to wear masks on public transport and in other places, such as health centers and pharmacies.

The Spanish Council of Ministers is reportedly discussing the issue today and will approve the end of the mask requirement on public transport.

Even after the new rule has been confirmed, masks will still be compulsory in hospitals and health centers, pharmacies, as well as for visitors and employees in dormitories and social health centers.

Several regions have long called for the end of face masks, particularly on the subway, after claims that no one is monitoring their use.

The transport sector called for an end last September, but experts advised waiting until winter.

Even so, experts are advising people to be cautious and continue to use the mask in closed environments for anyone showing symptoms of a respiratory infection.

A health spokesman said: “If we have symptoms then we should deal with them responsibly and if we also belong to vulnerable or vulnerable groups.

“We need to understand that our health affects that of others in some way, especially when an infectious disease is involved.”
