UK lifts quarantine for vaccinated Britons arriving from Spain

Residents of the United Kingdom entering England from July 19 from countries on their amber list, including Spain, must not be subject to a 10-day quarantine if they have received the full COVID-19 vaccination schedule, British Transport Secretary Grant announced Shapps on Thursday. .

The minister said before the (lower) House of Commons, that the government would maintain the requirements to take a test before traveling to England and PCR in the first two days after entering the country, before adding that the obligation to take a PCR test is the third test eight days after arrival.

At the moment, and since June 31, Spain requires a negative PCR or a full vaccination of citizens coming from the United Kingdom.

The Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, justified this measure by saying that the data received at the time from the United Kingdom was worrying because, at that time, they had been infected “much higher than 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days”. Currently, Spain has a 14-day cumulative rate of more than 252 positive cases per 100,000 people.
