‘It’s pointless!’ Ibiza and Majorca have been placed back on the amber list, angering British holidaymakers.
It is currently expected that IBIZA, Majorca, and Menorca will return to the amber list. The British public has reacted to the latest holiday setback.
It has been suggested that Ibiza, Menorca, and Majorca could be reinstated on the “amber list,” implying tighter inspections for Britons returning from the islands.
“It’s all still up for debate,” a source told The Sun, “but the stats aren’t terrific, which is why it was put on the watch list in the first place.”
A final decision is expected to be reached today.
Many Express readers were disappointed by the news, with many expressing hope for the holidays.
Others suggested vacationing in the United Kingdom instead, to avoid disappointments.
“Unfortunately, stay at home and save your heartache; go elsewhere next year,” one wrote.
“There’s no purpose in scheduling a vacation overseas this year,” another added. Countries will alternate between red, amber, and green at all times.”
“Anyone pre-booking a holiday overseas this year is basically an idiot – any place green today will be amber or red later,” commented another.
“Don’t bother till 2022 at the earliest,” one said.
“I’ve always said it, anyone arranging a vacation overseas at this time should consult a psychiatrist,” one wrote. “Anyone who isn’t vaccinated is a s******.”
“I don’t understand why anyone is planning a trip overseas this year; the dumb government changes its mind every five minutes,” commented another.
“This is beyond ridiculous,” one reader noted. Like the Hokey Cokey, I’m on and off the list.”
As many people planned their staycations for this year, support for British vacations continued to grow.
One said, “I have a week booked in Bournemouth.” Spend money in the United Kingdom.”
“It’s great here in the Lake District, who needs Spain?” said another.
“Never mind,” one responded, “I have Devon in early September to look forward to.”
Another said, “Don’t worry, you can always travel to Brighton or Blackpool.”
For the time being, the Balearic Islands (Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca, and Menorca) are on the green list. They are, however, on the government of the United Kingdom’s “green watchlist.”
The number of illnesses on the Balearic Islands has risen to 258 per 100,000 people.
In Spain, the number of illnesses has tripled in the last two weeks, with 368 cases per 100,000 people.
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.
