      Since the piece about spain scrapping covid requirements for entry by eu citizens, on 2June, i have overheard many uk visitors and residents quibbling about the wording. Point is that for vaccinated and unvaccinated uk citizens entering or re entering Spain, there are still mandatory requirements for different profiles. Strongly suggest a reliable updated headline weekly saying the latest position as it is bound to change according to circumstances. 2June piece I saw again today,9 June, is not breaking news!
