The restrictions in Ibiza and Formentera due to the coronavirus covid-19 are lifted as the epidemiological situation in the Balearic Islands improves.
Ibiza clubs will be able to open their doors from October 8 with an occupation of 75% of their capacity and the obligation to drink seated, with a distance of one and a half meters between chairs. These establishments may close their doors at 5 am, unless municipal regulations require them to do so earlier. Only one person can be on the dance floor for every two square meters of space. The Balearic Minister of Health, explained this morning in Ibiza that the Superior Court of Justice of the Balearic Islands (TSJB) has been asked for authorization to only allow people with a covid passport to enter the clubs (with the double guideline vaccination), as defended by the entrepreneurs of the nightlife sector.
In the event that the Balearic court does not give permission to do so, next Monday’s meeting of the Government Council will decide “the measures” for the opening of these establishments; In other words, the clubs may open after two closing seasons, but with some measures or others depending on whether the use of the covid passport is allowed as an entry requirement.
From tomorrow there will be lifted most of the restrictions in Ibiza and Formentera. Only some limitations will be maintained in activities with a “higher risk” of contagion, as explained by the councilor, such as restaurants. In any case, there will no longer be a time limit in the bars, cafes and restaurants of the islands, only the one determined by municipal regulations. Only the 75% of the capacity will be occupied indoors but there won’t be a maximum number of people per table indoors and outdoors.
In the case of pubs and café concerts, where the same limitations apply as in restaurants, the opening hours are extended until 4 am, as long as municipal regulations don’t force them to close earlier.
