Spain plans to impose a quarantine on UK tourists once it reopens its borders. In this way, it would be responding to a similar measure imposed by London, according to what the Spanish Foreign Minister, Arancha González Laya, told the BBC.
"We will check what the United Kingdom will do and we will be in dialogue with the United Kingdom to see if we should introduce reciprocity or not, since they have different measures than the rest of the European Union," said Laya.
The minister took the opportunity to remember that the EU member states and the countries belonging to the Schengen area will lift the quarantine measures when their borders reopen: "We will have them until June 22 and we will withdraw them on June 22. If the United Kingdom I would like to keep them after that day, for reasons that have to do with your own vision of health, we will respect it but we will probably act in reciprocity. "
"In other words, everything is a moving objective that we have to keep adjusting, the most important ingredient being to make sure that we respect what scientists tell us and that we act accordingly," he added.
