Spain and Portugal have both adopted the usual rules for sanitation. Face masks are mandatory in public, thorough hand washing is recommended and social distancing is practice in all public places. Most people eat outside at restaurant terraces. Churches (such as the Cathedral in Santiago) limit the amount of people permitted entry.

From Thursday July 22th, authorities in the northwestern region of Galicia will expect residents and visitors of municipalities with a high or very high infection rate have to show proof that they are immunised against Covid-19 or that they don’t have the virus if they want to go inside their local bars and restaurants.

This can be done by showing proof of a negative Covid test taken within the last 72 hours, a certificate of full vaccination or proof of recovery from the illness over the past six months.

Porto has a similar rule enforce as at 10th August 2021.
