The president of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano Garcia-Page, said the region is planning to abolish mandatory masks before the end of June.
Castilla-La Mancha will make a “mature decision” based on “national coherence” in the coming weeks, he said on May 31.
The Andalucian Junta has also said a decision about masks would be made soon.
Garcia-Page said even contemplating an end to obligatory masks outdoors was “thanks to an enormously positive vaccination process”.
“The Spanish people have fulfilled, with the way of being that we have, like few others in Europe. Honestly, in their homes and outside of them and this deserves to be recognised,” he said.
Masks became obligatory in Andalucia on July 15, 2020.
Speaking in Jaen on May 14, the President of Andalucia said the region will maintain the mandatory use of masks until 80 per cent of the population have received both doses of vaccine.
“You have to go little by little. We have to be prudent, especially where there is a concentration of people,” he said.
