Spain holidays: Irish tourists warned as latest European advice on Covid

Although thousands of Irish holidaymakers have left since the borders opened for international travel last month, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has warned against travel to Spain.

Spanish authorities still allow visitors and vacationers in, in order to maintain its tourism-dependent economy. But the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention urges anyone looking for the Spanish sun to exercise caution.

For Irish sun seekers, there is still hope for a Spanish vacation this summer. While the majority of Spain falls into the dark red color category, the ECDC He said: “Asturias is placed in the red category because this part of the country has lower infection rates.”

Asturias is not as affected as other parts of Spanish territory.
