Shopping centers and large stores are also allowed to reopen their doors to customers. Nevertheless, strict corona requirements must still be observed.



In Mallorca, restaurants and bars are allowed to reopen their interiors.
Catering on the outdoor terraces of restaurants, bars and cafes has been permitted on Mallorca since the beginning of March, and the indoor area is now also allowed to reopen subject to certain corona measures. Among other things, a strict number of people must be adhered to: While the outdoor area can be used up to 50 percent, a maximum of 30 percent of the usual number of guests is permitted inside. Furthermore, the number of people per table is limited to four guests, the mouth and nose protection may only be removed for the consumption of food and drinks.
