SPAIN has scrapped more Covid restrictions across the country, as huge numbers of tourists are expected to visit in the upcoming weeks.

The country has ditched Covid testing and quarantine rules for anyone who has mild symptoms of the virus or those who are asymptomatic.

According to the Canarian Weekly, people will instead be advised to avoid large social contact for seven days and to wear a mask while outside instead of having to quarantine.

While some rules still remain in place – such as face masks remaining compulsory for all indoor public spaces – Spain is one of the first countries in Europe to reduce the Covid measures.

The Public Health Commission has scrapped the rules to "normalise Covid" from today, although will only be in place as long as Covid cases remain low.

Only those who are vulnerable, including anyone over 60, or pregnant, will need to take tests if symptomatic and isolate if it comes back positive.
