The main change at the moment is the curfew. bars and restaurants have to close by midnight and everyone has to be home by then (except for the workers). The curfew is from 12 midnight until 6am.

It's great, the streets are so quiet. No f@rty mopeds or drunks shouting .....

... I've still got to climb the church tower and fit mufflers to the bells though

Are they mufflers for the cyclists bells? Ooops. I forgot they do not use them do they.
Have they deserted the island as I have not seen many on the webcam. Shame really as they do bring much income to the local economy.

With the British government announcing today that all arrivals into England will from next week require evidence of a negative Covid Test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival and the Scottish government announcing the same for arrivals into Scotland, does anybody know:-

(1) Where in the north of the island such private tests can be obtained with a guarantee of results in the required timeline?

(2) What they cost (in the UK the charges vary from £60 to £500 per person!)?

(3) How and where the tests can be booked and how far in advance can a booking be made?

Thanks.

That is a very good question and I’d love to know the answer to that. The cost of two way tests, to and from Mallorca, will massively impact upon the tourist industry. Even if Spain comes out of its “red” status the test will still be required. I wonder when we will realistically be able to return to our apartment?

Who would have thought 2021 could actually be worse than last year!

Also Doctor Mallorca in Alcudia offer covid tests with results in 24 hours, mobile 664404261. Tests were 250 Euros earlier in the year as we needed them for travel, however price may be reduced now. Very pleasant Doctor and a good service.

Sorry, I should have added that all bookings were completed in advance, via an initial e-mail, but then all on whatsapp.

This is great news. Fingers crossed, we arrive on Saturday. Does the limit per table also apply to children under 5? They are exempt from some U.K. restrictions.
