Mallorca returns to face mask street regulations after calls from residents.
Residents in Mallorca called on their local government for the return of face mask regulation, and their wish has been granted.
Just 4 weeks ago, regulations were dropped, although, since the dropping of the regulation, infections of Covid have spiralled with the current case numbers over 7,000.
The huge spike in cases saw the people who live on their small Spanish island call upon their own government and requested mask returns to protect the Mallorcan economy.
An economy that has been obliterated in the last 12.5 months, residents want it fully protected now whilst tourists visit.
The government have responded, and from this weekend, masks on the street will again be law and compulsory.
British ex-pat Annis Abraham is a businessman who has been trading in Santa Ponsa for several years. The property owner told of his delight after being one of those calling on the government.
He told Global247news this afternoon, “It’s a great result and one that we all support here on the island.
“This Island can not afford any more setbacks, and we fully applaud our government; they are a government who listen to the people.
“If holidaymakers are to complain out this, they should remember, if we don’t take safety measures like this, they will be stopped from coming anyway,” said delighted Abraham.
