Spain:Devastation for winter holidays to Majorca – strict covid measures set to stay

2 mins read

Tourists heading for the Balearics have been advised to expect different levels of coronavirus regulations depending on which island they visit.

What’s more, unlike in the UK, Spanish authorities are adamant these rules will not be relaxed for Christmas, as the islands are put on a new system of alert.

Government officials this morning announced that Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera will now be on tiers which will affect how long pubs and restaurants can be open for, how many people can mix in public and the duration of night-time curfews.

President, Francina Armengol said this will come into effect on Saturday and will be reviewed every 14 days.

She warned that measures will differ not just from island to island but from municipalities and districts as well.

The announcement comes as the Balearic government confirmed that any local resident visiting any of the other islands for a Christmas break will get a PCR coronavirus test free of charge.

There is no news yet about whether this might be extended to international tourists, including British visitors, who are currently required to pay for their own test within 72 hours of travelling to Spain and must show their Covid-free certificate at the airport or port on arrival.
