I think you should lodge a complaint withYou're not getting what I'm asking.
I'm not talking about quarantine, I'm asking whether contact with a positive case would mean being forced to stay in Spain for an extra ten days to undergo required testing. I'm assuming I can't take a PCR test and then get on a flight home while waiting for the results, right? And if that first PCR is negative, do I still need to stay in Spain to take another one a week later, or am I fine to fly home and do it in the UK? Obviously having to be quarantined in Spain is different to being free to go out and about, but I don't want to spend an extra 10+ days in Spain, with all the extra costs that entails, based on a tiny chance of transmission. Maybe I'm overthinking and they'd let me just fly home, but why on earth isn't it documented clearly? How can people make informed decisions without pertinent information?
I'm just baffled by the fact there's no information about this PCR test requirement and any possible requirement to stay much longer than planned in Spain while undergoing further tests. I'm looking into it because I'm conscientious but I know loads of people who have just been for a few days away and had absolutely no idea that this could have been required. Surely the onus is on Spain to make it crystal clear to people what the process for exposure is? I agree the UK process is silly, but at least people know exactly what they're signing up for! I don't!

Please make sure that you tell her how much superior the UK system is inspite of 364.6 cases per 100,000 in the UK compared to 52 cases per 100,000 in Spain.
