Very good question....but I'd suggest that if you take a test a day before you leave and two days after you get home, that leaves a three day window to pick it.

The only thing the test proves is that you were negative when it was taken. You could get infected as soon as you walk out the door .

How soon after I'm infected with the new coronavirus will I start to be contagious?
The time from exposure to symptom onset (known as the incubation period) is thought to be two to 14 days, though symptoms typically appear within four or five days after exposure.

We know that a person with COVID-19 may be contagious 48 hours before starting to experience symptoms. People may actually be most likely to spread the virus to others during the 48 hours before they start to experience symptoms.

For people who are not fully vaccinated, wearing masks, particularly indoors, can help reduce the risk that someone who is infected but not yet experiencing symptoms may unknowingly infect others.

Thanks . Just soo depressing since most of us are now double vaccinated.
I stupidly thought that when the vaccination roll out began back in January all would be well by summer !

Anyway still coming in Sept.

Keep on looking forward to your trip…..you won’t regret it. We’re here now and the place is much busier than last month. Almost feels like normal. Enjoy!

Default NEW rules for THE Balearics

Just read, sadly, on the internet, that majorca and the other islands will have to impose face mask wearing in all outdoor and indoor settings from 24th july.

Anyone confirm this???

Don’t think that’s right. Anyway, already imposed indoors.

No this is not true unless it`s changed since earlier in the week. We have always had to wear masks indoors except when eating and drinking and the government now advise wearing them outdoors if social distancing isn`t possible.

These are the latest regulations......

From this Saturday all social gatherings involving people from different households are banned after 1am. The measure will last for the next two weeks.

From this Thursday, restaurants will have to close by 1am. and restrictions introduced on seating, eight people per table (instead of 12) outside and four people (instead of six) inside. But the Balearic government has decided not to make the mask compulsory again in public areas.

Default PCR test

Hi all
We are hopefully returning to Pollensa for a week in September.
Could anyone let me know where we can get our PCR test in Pollensa 72 hours before we fly home?
Thanks in advance

We used Juaneda in the Formentor Road for our lateral flow tests last month - excellant - results via e mail within 30 minutes - cost €30. Can book and pay online. They do PCR tests as well for €75. I think they now have a place near Pollensa Park Hotel. There is also Dr Majorca on the front near the Tabacs. But please check the recent Govt guidelines as I believe the PCR test is advisory not compulsary so a lateral flow test will do. Not coming back until September so I’m sure the rules will change again!
