The new measures were made effective as of Wednesday 15th September, allowing social gatherings between 02:00 – 06:00 without any restrictions. These measures will stay in place until 29th September – then will be re-evaluated.
The Balearic Islands governing officials have moved Ibiza to medium risk as a result of the falling infection rates on the island, which has now dropped to less than 350 cases per 100,000 people – the threshold that determined the introduction of tougher restrictions. As of 10th September, epidemiological data from the region shows a 14-day cumulative rate of 276.6 cases per 100,000 people.
Under new measures, restaurants and bars must still close at 02:00 but can now permit eight people to an indoor table and 12 people to outdoor tables.
Residents must still wear masks inside public premises and on public transport, and smoking remains prohibited in bars and restaurants. Government officials have also advised that locator forms will no longer be necessary for fully vaccinated internal travellers, arriving from other parts of Spain.
