No more green areas in Spain, Catalonia and Valencia…

Catalonia, Aragon and the Valencia region have now turned red on the map of the European Center for Disease Control, ECDC. The Belgian government adopts these color codes, which have consequences for returning travelers. Now that Galicia and the Balearic Islands are also orange, Spain doesn’t have a single green area anymore. Cyprus is also turning red.

In the past week, La Rioja, Castile La Mancha and Andalusia have already turned red. For ECDC to color an area red, it must have an incidence rate of 75 to 200 infections per 100,000 population within two weeks and a positivity rate of 4 percent or more. The area will also turn red if the infection rate is higher than 200 infections per 100,000 population but less than 500. If the infection rate is higher, the color code is dark red, but this is only the case in French Guiana.

Changing color codes can have unpleasant consequences for travelers returning from those areas. Returning from residence in the red zone must self-quarantine for ten days and take two PCR tests. This quarantine can be interrupted on the seventh day if the second PCR test turns out to be negative. The government does not always accept a map update of the center until the following Monday.

In other European countries, the trend on the ECDC map is more positive. In Greece and the Netherlands, the regions again turned green. France, Denmark and Italy are now completely green.
