The risk of contamination in this area has increased as a result, the State Department reports. “That’s why you only travel to Greater Barcelona (Barcelona and all its suburbs) if there is a necessary reason (sp. no tourism),” it says TravelTravellers who are already in Barcelona are advised to consider early stay.
In addition to the Barcelona metropolitan area, the Segria region (Lleida and its surroundings) is still at high risk of contamination, which is why the advice is “orange” for this region as well.
For those who have visited Barcelona or one of the suburbs or return to the Netherlands from the Barcelona and Segrié metropolitan area, the urgent advice is to go to (home) quarantine for two weeks.
Barcelona is considered one of the most popular European city break destinations. In the Netherlands, daily flights from Schiphol airport and Eindhoven to El Prat, the international airport of the Catalan capital, are offered daily this summer.
For the rest of Spain, including the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, the travel advice is still “yellow”.
