Police tighten coronavirus lockdown.

17-03-2020Salvador Sas

The Civil Guard has increased patrols on roads and highways across the Balearic Islands to prevent residents from travelling to second homes over the weekend.

Officers will be deployed at roundabouts and access roads to towns to prevent people from breaking the State of Emergency which restricts movement to prevent the coronavirus.

Travelling to and from residences other than the one occupied when the restrictions came into force is strictly prohibited and only one person is allowed in each vehicle, except in specific cases.

Surveillance will be stepped up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and residents are asked to respect the movement restrictions now in place.

Breaking the rules will result in a fine of between 600 and 3,000 euros.

You cant travel with your wife in the car but it’s ok to be part if a gang planting trees on the central reservation. You can still work on a building site aswell. Laughable!

Two Tourists in Cala Bona went for an early morning walk. The Policia stopped them and Fined them €600 Each. Urbanisations in the Winter become Ghost Towns , but now they are almost deserted!!!.. Alll food Shops have Staff wearing Face Masks, and you use gels and put surgical gloves on before you can enter the Shop.
