13-05-2020

The Balearic tourism minister, Iago Negueruela, said on Tuesday that the regional government expects the 14-day quarantine period for travellers arriving from abroad to be a provisional measure.

Negueruela and President Armengol held a videoconference with the national tourism minister, Reyes Maroto, and the secretary-of-state for tourism, Bel Oliver, to discuss the tourism situation in the Balearics and the quarantine. Afterwards, Negueruela stated that the quarantine should last the minimum and necessary time and that it should be "proportional to the degrees of de-escalation". It should, therefore, "begin to be withdrawn as the phases of de-escalation progress".

Armengol and Negueruela stressed to Maroto that their intention is to be able to restart tourism at the end of June or start of July. "The recovery of tourism in the Balearics is important for Spain."

It's irrelevant. Why are Mallorcan tourist officials so deluded 🤷‍♂️. No one is coming here apart from 2nd home owners, full stop. Even they are just checking on their asset and will load up at the supermarkets and not go to bars or restaurants. Germany & Britain have told their citizens not to go on holiday this summer. Which bit of that don't these idiot tourism officials not get??
