The Balearic Government is easing the coronavirus restrictions now that coronavirus infections have stabilised in the islands.

One of the most important changes is the curfew delay until 23:00, giving bars and restaurants more time to serve dinner from Monday to Thursday.

The new measures will be approved on Friday in an extraordinary Governing Council and enforced from Saturday for 15 days and are determined by “sanitary rigour,” according to Government Spokesperson and Tourism Minister, Iago Negueruela.

The new measures in Mallorca from Saturday April 24:

Social gatherings:
The boundaries of cohabitation nuclei will be eliminated for family reunions and social gatherings outdoors and on bar and restaurant terraces. Groups of up to six people can meet outside and four on terraces. Meetings indoors will continue to be restricted to six people from two different homes.

The curfew has been delayed by one hour and will be enforced from 23.00-06.00 from Monday.

Mallorca will continue with the fenced interior spaces, with 100% capacity in exterior areas. Tables can be occupied by 4 people with no limit on the number of households. From Monday to Thursday bars and restaurants can open from 20.00-22.30, but they must close at 17:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
