Ibiza and Barcelona nightclubs to reopen on October 8
Ibiza and Barcelona nightclubs allowed to reopen their establishments October 8 following the respective COVID-19 measures.
As the respective governments finish clarifying the regulations, Ibiza nightclubs will be able to reopen again after a 2-year hiatus. According to Ibiza Diary, an agreement has been reached and the nightclubs will be allowed to reopen their doors on October 8, after several meetings held between the Balearic Nightclub association and the local government. The conditions are that nightclubs will have to require from all accompanying persons a complete vaccination record, a negative PCR test or proof of having transmitted the virus within the last 6 months, in order to be able to enter the club. Health authorities will follow this closely.
The Balearic government has already sought permission from the Balearic Islands Superior Court of Justice to approve these COVID-19 measures. If approved, the maximum authorized capacity will be limited to 75%, with the obligation to wear a mask to access the dance floor and consumption will only be allowed in a seated position. Closing time will be 05:00 at the latest.
The spokesperson for the government of the Balearic Islands, Iago Negueruela stressed during a press conference that the government is abolishing a good part of the restrictions, with which “the Balearic Islands is almost back to normal. “even though he stressed that people must be responsible “the coronavirus is still there”.
Although some clubs like Hi and Ushuaia have already ruled out the idea of opening this season, others like Amnesia Ibiza will open its doors. Pacha Ibiza and DC10 are still thinking about it.
On the other hand, the indoor discos in Catalonia, the Barcelona region, will also reopen their doors. Venues with more than 10,000 participants will have their capacity capped at 60% and like Ibiza, they will require the full vacation pass, a negative covid test, or a cure from the virus. For this, the Catalan government will launch a specific application that will validate this.
