The Trillas Platja campsite, in Tamarit, Tarragona, has started to promote a COVID-19 free zone to potential visitors who want to spend a holiday without masks or social distancing. The area, which will open on July 17, can accommodate around 50 visitors.
Caravans and bungalows could be seen ready to receive tourists on Monday at the campsite on the coast of Catalonia.
«At the entrance, they disinfect the vehicle and put a red wristband on you and then you can go to the motor home. In the motor home, a paramedic will come and test you for PCR (Polymerise Chain Reaction). Then you wait about six hours before you get the results. If the result is negative, they change your wristband to a green one and you can move freely around the campsite,» says Roger Trias, director of the campsite.
The total cost of the PCR (Polymerise Chain Reaction) test is €200 ($226), the price is divided equally between the campsite and the visitors.
«The idea came from the concern of our customers about how and in what way they can spend their holidays this year, especially those who have a family member who is at high risk or because they are older,” says Trias.
As of this Monday, Spain had reported 255,953 cases of COVID-19, and 28,406 deaths related to the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University.
