The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are respiratory: fever, cough, and breathing difficulties. Some patients also have digestive symptoms, such as diarrhoea and stomach pain, headache, severe fatigue (asthenia), and loss of smell and taste.

First, call 116. You should not go anywhere, including hospitals or primary healthcare centres. The person who answers your call will tell you which steps you need to take based on your symptoms, and whether or not they are indicative of COVID-19.

While you are waiting to receive medical attention, we recommend that you isolate yourself in the hotel or establishment you are staying in, and maintain a safe distance between yourself and your companions. You must strictly observe the hygiene measures recommended by the healthcare authorities.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser gel.
  • If you have to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue, or use the crook of your arm.
  • Maintain a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and your companions.
  • If you have to come closer, wear a face mask. 

The medical staff will be responsible for assessing your health and deciding whether your symptoms require further tests to be performed.

If you are a resident of Spain, France or Portugal, all you need is a travel document from your social security office. If you are a resident of another country, we recommend that you take out private insurance. This is because any medical attention or hospital care you receive will have to be paid for.
