Covid-19 is over in Spain

Our personal COVID-19 tips for travellers and tourists:

  • Wash hands often and thoroughly in the same way medical staff do in hospitals. 
  • Carry anti-bacterial cleaning solution
  • Cough into your sleeve, not your hands.
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes or mouth if you are in contact with people who show symptoms.
  • Wear a face mask if you have symptoms
  • If you have symptoms, self-isolate yourself and wear a mask. 
  • If you have symptoms call the emergency services (112 in Spain) for advice. Do not go to a health center where you risk infecting others on the way and at the center
  • Consider avoiding large groups of people if you are in a high risk area
  • Stay home if you have symptoms - even of regular influenza

Many of these general tips should be followed every winter to avoid spreading any kind of infection or influenza.
