News: UK add 14-day quarantine to all Britons returning from Spain.

UK add 14-day quarantine to all Britons returning from Spain.

The British government have just announced that all UK residents that have booked holidays to Spain must now self-isolate for a period of 14 days after returning from their holidays in sunny Spain.

In another UTURN from the UK government, they have just announced last Saturday evening July 25th that as a result of a few Spanish regions Aragon, Catalonia and Navarra that are having a second wave of COVID-19. The 'air bridge' has been shut down following a new recorded high of more than 900 new daily COVID-19 infections over the past few days.

With this latest information in hand, they have decided to put a whole blanket ban over all of Spain and also its islands, the Balearics and Tenerife, even though they have no new cases or infections on the islands.

Arancha Gonzalez Laya, the Spanish Foreign Minister had made it clear that restrictions could be imposed solely for the British Citizens travelling to Spain from the United Kingdom. A 14-day quarantine measure may be introduced as Spain at the moment have not got one in place but as a retaliation to the latest news imposed by the British Government, a huge devastating blow to Spain and its economy.

Spain is the number one holiday destination for Brits and has been for many years with over 7 million visiting the country in August alone, but this decision has seen them removed from the UK's safety travel 'air bridge' list. After a short window of around 21 days, of travel free quarantine restrictions had resumed between Spain and the UK.

This devastating news has left many thousands of UK travellers up in arms and with many having to cancel their summer holidays break as a result and many losing thousands of pounds in the process.

TUI the UK's largest travel operator has cancelled all flights to Spain until August 9th, although Ryanair has said they are resuming flights as normal to the popular destination.

Whilst these measures are in place there are still talks that the UK could possibly reduce the quarantine period to 10 days instead of the current 14 days. Travellers returning home from Spain are seeking to maybe apply for sickness benefit for the period that they need to self-isolate, as employers are not prepared to pay for their staff to stay home.
