  • Ibiza's pilot event on June 25th has led to no cases of Covid-19, Diario de Ibiza reports. The outdoor party, organised by the Ibiza Leisure Association, took place at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza with 1,263 people in attendance, most of whom were essential workers. Data was gathered ten days after the event and partygoers were asked a series of questions about the state of their health. The results showed no Covid-19 transmissions. "The results show that the pilot test has been a success and that safe leisure can be enjoyed," said José Luis Benítez from the Ibiza Leisure Association. "We have shown that this is the way forward to finally open the regulated leisure offer and so that people can be monitored in the event of an outbreak, as opposed to what we are seeing in illegal parties, where attendees cannot be identified and also become real sources of contagion." Whilst at the event, all partygoers wore face masks, only removing them when drinking, and were either fully vaccinated, had presented a negative PCR test or had recently recovered from Covid-19. Anyone who did not meet these requirements, some 393 individuals, were tested for antigens on site. Meanwhile, the UK government has decided to remove the Balearic Islands from its qurantine-free green list, just two weeks after adding the region. Holidaymakers travelling back from the area after July 19th at 4 AM will now have to self-isolate for up to ten days.
