Spanish Nightlife Is Approved To Reopen

Late night reopening will be allowed, but only in areas with a low rate of COVID-19 infections.

Spain can now reopen nightlife on a regional basis following a majority vote from the International Health Council.

The vote took place on Wednesday the 2nd of June, and Euronews reports that in a 14 day period prior to opening, a local area must have a maximum infection rate of 50 cases per 100,000 people for clubs to open.

Although clubs can stay open until 3 AM, there are still restrictions such as a 50% capacity and those in attendance must wear a mask. People must also and remain in a group of no more than six people.

These measures are now legally bound in Spanish law and will remain in effect until 70% of the country’s population has been vaccinated.

Spain’s health minister, Carolina Darias said people still need to be patient before a full return to pre-pandemic life: “A gradual and progressive return to normality is needed. Lessons must be learned.

The Balearic Islands region of Spain where Ibiza is based had on the 2nd of June a 14-day infection rate of 39.26 cases per 100,000, and 554 active cases of COVID-19. So this could be good news for the island’s summer party season.

The Balearic government have been working in tandem with the Ibiza Leisure Association to organise a 2,000 person test event, which is scheduled to take place between June and July. It’s expected the results of this will have a large impact on the viability of safely opening Ibiza for overseas tourism.
