Spain extended until August 23 the 10-day quarantine requirement to those who arrive in Spain from countries considered high risk for the contagion of covid-19, as they are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Namibia and South Africa.
The Official Gazette of the Spanish State publishes this Saturday an order that extends the current requirement since July 23, with the quarantine conditions to which passengers arriving in Spain on flights from any airport in those countries, with or without scales.
According to this order, these travelers must be quarantined for the ten days following their arrival, or during their entire stay in Spain if it is less than that period, although can be stopped on the seventh day if a negative diagnostic test is performed.
Consideration of a high-risk country is made by jointly assessing the main epidemiological indicators used for this purpose in the European Union.
The criteria contemplated include the cumulative incidence per 100,000 inhabitants in fourteen days, the rate of positivity, the rate of diagnostic tests, or the rate of the vaccinated population.
