Ibiza, Majorca, and Menorca have been relegated to the amber list, posing a holiday nightmare for Britons.
IBIZA, Majorca, and Menorca are all likely to return on the Government’s amber list, causing havoc for British tourists.
The news is due tomorrow, barely two weeks after the popular Balearic Islands were added to the green list, removing the requirement for returning Britons to self-isolate for 10 days.
While these popular vacation sites remain on the green list for the time being, it has been widely speculated in Whitehall that Ibiza, Menorca, and Majorca might be placed back on the “amber list” tomorrow, causing havoc with holiday plans for thousands of Britons who must return to work.
“It’s all still up for debate,” a source added, “but the numbers aren’t terrific, which is why it was put on the watch list in the first place.”
Ministers are expected to make a final decision on the newest upgrade to the traffic signal system tomorrow morning.
The Balearic Islands presently have 258 instances per 100,000 people, which is still lower than many places of the United Kingdom.
The Balearic Islands (Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca, and Menorca) are theoretically still on the green list, but they are now on a “green watchlist,” according to the government website.
This indicates that they are on the verge of changing from green to amber.
In the meantime, mainland Spain and the Canary Islands have been placed on the amber alert list.
In mainland Spain, the number of illnesses has tripled in the last two weeks, reaching 368 per 100,000 people.
On July 9, there were more than 21,000 new cases in Spain.
People should not go to countries or territories on the Amber List, according to the government.
If a visitor arrives in England from a nation on the Amber List, they will be required to quarantine. This must be done for ten days at home or in the location where they are staying.
Additionally, on or before day two and on or after day eight, travelers must complete a COVID-19 test.
The government has stated that children aged four and younger do not need to take the day two or day eight tests.
Some people may be able to finish their quarantine before the 10-day mark if they use the Test to Release program.
“You may be able to end your quarantine sooner if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme,” the government says.
