Quarantine worker exception
28 May, 2020duguech
The coronavirus pandemic, which has forced the implementation of restrictive measures to prevent its spread, begins to relax. However, restrictions on free movement by air, sea and land still remain. Travelers from abroad who enter Spanish territory, or Spaniards repatriated by the COVID-19 health crisis, must keep 14 days of mandatory quarantine, as reported by the Government.
However, the regulations present an exception for workers, according to what is indicated in the Official State Gazette (BOE):
Both travelers and Spaniards who work for others may only move if they provide essential services. Those who do not provide essential services must remain in quarantine, in order to reduce the mobility of the population in the context of the fight against COVID-19, and may only be mobilized, in the workplace, motivated “by force majeure or need situation”.
Likewise, quarantine conditions and travel limitations remain in force only for: purchasing food, pharmaceuticals and basic necessities; assistance to health centers, services and establishments; or due to force majeure or a situation of need.
