Travellers entering the UK from Spain will have to go into quarantine

SPAIN has seen more than 28,000 Coronavirus deaths since the start of the Covid19 Pandemic and the Spanish Government had hopped that the end was in site. Sadly the biggest biggest daily increase in infections since its lockdown in Spain ended happened on Thursday, in Catalonia area. This spike has lead to France has warned its citizens not to travel to the Region and while Norway has said it will start quarantining people arriving from Spain. Now, only days after quarantine measures for UK travellers to Spain have been re-introduced. Spanish officials have also warned a second wave could be imminent as major cities have seen cases surge after more than 900 new cases of the virus reported on Friday.

Now all Travellers returning to the UK, from Spain, after midnight tonight will have to quarantine for 14 days until further notice. A spokesman from the UK's Department for Transport said:- "We have taken this decision to limit any potential spread to the UK. We've always been clear that we would act immediately to remove a country where necessary."

It has lead to more calls that the UK Government should issue advice that only essential foreign travel should be allowed. Just as in the Spain, in the UK young people is a particular worry, as they have been gathering in large numbers in cities and towns and this has highlighted the need for the UK Government to do more to target messages our young people, warning them of the dangers, or we could be next!

UK travellers currently on holiday in Spain should follow the local rules, return home as normal, and check the Foreign Office's travel advice website for further information.
