Conclusion #

We all want to return to Mallorca. A recent poll by the “Daily Bulletin” showed that 80% of the respondents stated they plan to return to the Balearics by Summer 2021. The only way this happens is if we all comply with testing, tracing and sanitization.

With a projected 30,000 small businesses to close in the Balearics by the end of 2020, we need everyone to comply so that we can save the economy and our way of life.

Stay safe. #Wearamask #Socialdistance
