COVID-19 update October 1st 2021. Things are looking brighter.

This is the pandemic situation in Spain:

Eligible population that is fully vaccinated: 77.5%

Eligible popultion that is fully vaccinated in major Spanish Camino de Santiago regions: Galicia (83.6%), Castilla y León (81.3%), La Rioja (79.4%), Navarra (77.7%), Asturias (84.5%), Basque Country (80.2%), Cantabria (80.4%).

Data for the last seven days

Deaths: 234 (just over 35 per day)

Incidence Rate: 31 (very low risk)

All other pandemic indicators, such as hospitalizations, continue to decrease significantly.

There are NO mobility restrictions in Spain between Autonomous Regions and Provinces. Applied to the Caminos de Santiago in Spain, this means that nothing can stop you from crossing Spain, and that it is highly unlikely that you will encounter a town that is confined.

The only restriction that is enforced everywhere in Spain is the use of a mask in indoor public spaces, all public transport and when you cannot maintain a safety distance with other people.

Regarding travel, as of September 2021, travellers from the United States must be fully vaccinated and present a negative COVID-19 test. Requirements vary by country, see the link below for more information.
