Britons have been warned about the strengthening of mask regulations in the popular tourist country in Europe
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the United Kingdom has warned British tourists planning to visit Spain in the near future about the dangers of the spread of Covid-19. Tourists were reminded of the mask regime that has been imposed in the country and to get vaccinated.
Spain has imposed restrictions on visiting certain places without masks. According to the Daily Star, the number of coronavirus and flu cases has increased among Spaniards and foreign tourists.
This can be confusing for European tourists, as Spain became the first EU country to reintroduce the mask regime in medical facilities, pharmacies, hospitals, etc.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has warned Britons that they should carry a mask with them and advised them to consult about places where they need to wear one.
"Due to the increase in respiratory infections such as flu and Covid, you may be required to wear a mask when visiting healthcare facilities such as doctors' surgeries, hospitals or pharmacies. Specific regulations on the use of masks may vary from region to region. You should seek advice from local authorities at your destination and make sure you are aware of the specific measures in place to best protect yourself and others," the message says.
