British tourists returning to UK.

British tourists returning to UK.

Britain will drop its policy of requiring people returning from the Spanish Canary Islands or Balearics to quarantine for two weeks, the Sun newspaper said on Monday.

On Saturday, Britain announced a 14-day quarantine on travellers from Spain at the height of the summer vacation season, and the government is monitoring a rise of cases in France and Germany too.

It's fascinating... I'm reading how some of you are counting 'un-masked' individuals, calling names, blaming, and more. What is the matter with you people? I've lived on the island before this 'pandemic' and in the time of it. People have always been fed up with idiots that come, but that happens everywhere! And many locals live from tourism. Not to mention how fooled you've all been, that been said, re-think the mask-wearing situation and do some research... Law is the law, but how far will you go. If it affects your health. All I'm saying is, that most of you seem to be paying attention to the wrong problems.

I can only agree with the comment below. And it’s not just the tourists. The local population in Santa Ponsa is making a mockery of this rule too.

I would not take travel advice from speculation within the Sun newspaper. In fact, to the contrary, The Balearics and Canary Islands have actually been added to the advice not to travel.

If your WHY is asking why the tourists are not wearing masks it is because they are ignorant, arrogant and selfish. The only reason tourists are being invited to Mallorca is to spend their money and I'm sure there are many residents who welcome these relatively quiet times while they are not being overrun by marauding idiots.

To the comment below.

Why so concerned about face mask wearing when they aren’t mandatory in the UK? I suggest just enjoy your holiday and not worry about others.

It’s a crazy rule anyway. The wearing of a mask outside is not required as the risk of infection in open spaces is extremely minimal.

On this story let’s hope our shambles of a UK government see sense and allows air corridors to the canaries and Balearic Islands.

My wife and I are staying in Alcudia, why are there no police controlling tourist who are not wearing face masks. We counted 51 adults and several children walking out of Bellevue totally ignoring this rule. WHY !!!
