BUSINESSES selling booze on the Magaluf party strip are to remain shut until at least November.
The Balearic government’s regional Health ministry has extended the closure order for clubs and bars in Punta Ballena and in Calle Cerveza and Calle Jamon in the Playa del Palma for a further month.
The regional administration first ordered businesses in the notorious zones to shut their doors in mid-July over concerns about drunken incidents and altercations, and images of throngs of revellers not wearing face masks or social distancing.
The original opening ban ran until September 15, the end of the peak tourist season. The Balearic administration then extended the order to September 30, and has now said it will stay in place until October 30.
The Calvia Businesses and Workers Association expressed its “indignation” about the latest closure extension, strongly criticising both the regional government and Calvia council.
