Spain reopens its borders as state of emergency ends

Spain reopened its borders to visitors from most of the European countries and ended a state of emergency imposed to contain COVID-19.

People will still have to wear masks in public when social distancing measures cannot be observed. All arriving passengers will have their temperature taken, submit information about where they have come from.

British tourists will be allowed in without having to quarantine, Spain said, even though they will still be subject to 14-day isolation upon their return.

Spain has recorded about 246,000 coronavirus cases and more than 28,000 deaths. It has been easing its lockdown restrictions in recent weeks.
