Scots holidaymakers need no longer enter quarantine after travelling from Spain

Travellers arriving into Scotland from mainland Spain and its islands are no longer required to go into quarantine.

The decision, which has been taken following a thorough review of infection prevalence rates, means that mainland Spain and the Spanish islands will be added later this week to the list of destinations exempt from the two-week quarantine rule.

However, the shift of position comes as Spain enforces more restrictions, particularly in the Catalonia area.

The region has seen the worst incidence of COVID-19 cases in Spain since the lifting of the national lockdown last month, and the wearing of face coverings in public is now mandatory.

One British academic says Britons travelling to the country should wear masks and be “careful” but adds “it won’t be the same Spain people are used to”.
