Spain to impose 14-day quarantine on arrivals says Health Minister Salvador Illa

Spain’s Minister of Health Salvador Illa announced on Tuesday morning that his country will follow the lead of France, Germany and the UK with the new stringent quarantine rules to be imposed.

On arrival in Spain, all persons from abroad will be identified by the health authorities and will have to remain under quarantine, allowed out only for grocery shopping, healthcare, or in in cases of as yet undefined “situations of need”, an official order published on Tuesday said.

The quarantine will apply to all travellers arriving at the Spanish border between May 15th-24th, when the state of emergency is due to end.
