At Tuesday's parliamentary session, the Balearic government received backing for a decree which the cabinet had approved two days before the state of alarm ended on May 9. This decree, a reform of public health legislation, gives the government powers to impose restrictive measures in the event of a pandemic or epidemic. These include curfews and the closure of businesses. The decree, validated on Tuesday, will now go forward for debate as a law, but parliament has in essence already voted curfews into Balearic law.
