Gibraltar: Restrictions lifted after almost entire adult population vaccinated against COVID

After vaccinating almost the entire adult population, Gibraltar lifted curfews and restrictions on Sunday, allowing locals to walk around maskless.

Masks are no longer required when walking around Gibraltar’s Main Street and its surroundings, although mask-wearing remains compulsory on public transport and in shops.

"Not wearing a mask is incredible, yeah, it's amazing. It's just nice to be able to see people smile and see people's faces. Just the ability to breathe without feeling restricted," remarked a local.

The small British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, which has a population of around 34,000 people, has had 4,263 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, leading to 94 virus-related deaths.

"We feel very safe at the moment. The government has lifted our restrictions on wearing masks within the streets. Except for going to shops and closed spaces," stated a local resident.

Gibraltar’s health authorities have so far administered at least 57,646 doses to its population, meaning about 85 per cent of Gibraltar's population has already been fully vaccinated.
