Establishments will need to instal CO2 meters to check for correct ventilation.


Bars and restaurants in the Balearics will be obliged to keep a record of all customers in order to facilitate contact tracing in the event of a coronavirus outbreak. Establishments will need to keep this information for thirty days.

This measure was announced by the minister for the economic model, tourism and employment, Iago Negueruela, at a meeting with hospitality sector representatives on Thursday.

The date for the implementation of this measure will be announced next week, as also will be one requiring the installation of CO2 particle meters.

Information from these meters, which will have to be accessible to customers so that they can see the level of particles in a closed space, will show whether there is adequate natural ventilation in the interiors of bars and restaurants or whether air purifiers need to be installed. These can cost up to 2,000 euros, and the government will be setting aside funding if this is needed in order to purchase purifiers.

Unless you have something to hide (and maybe you do) what can possibly be wrong in giving your details to a restaurant? In many restaurants when you reserve a table you already give your name and phone number so grow up and play your part in anything and everything that can contribute to helping the current situation, including helping restaurants to stay in business and serve the food that you like. If you cannot, or will not, do that then neither restaurants and cafes nor the rest of the local population will miss you.

People will boycott restaurants who ask for personal data. Additionally there is a law for data protection and those establishments will get sued. No one is going to sign a permission to use his data to have a meal or a coffee.
