Masks
Mask must be worn by everyone over the age of 6 as follows:
•    In all interior public places such as shops /supermarkets/public transport/museums/petrol stations, although they can be taken off whilst eating and drinking in restaurants and cafes.
•    outside at all times.
•    It is not compulsory to wear a mask in a private car unless travelling with someone who is not part of your group.
A face mask must be carried at all times even if it isn’t required, although people with certain medical conditions are exempt.  Police can issue on the spot fines for anyone who doesn’t have a mask.  Masks and hand sanitising gel can be bought at supermarkets and chemists.

Supermarkets
•    As with all establishments, supermarkets provide hand sanitising gel at the entrance.
•    If gloves are provided, these must be worn whilst inside, although some shops now only require gloves to be used whilst choosing fruit and vegetables.

Shopping in General
•    There may be separate doors assigned for entering and exiting, with directional arrows and distance markers clearly visible on the floor, where queues tend to form.
•    Clothes shops are not providing changing room facilities at the moment and customers are encouraged to purchase and then try items on at home.  This is in conjunction with an easy policy for returning unwanted items.
•    Local markets are operating as usual but social distancing must be maintained and masks have to be worn.

Beaches
•    The beaches and parks are open as usual but social distancing must be maintained.  Masks only need to be worn in the beach bar/restaurant area.
•    Loungers and deck chairs are available and these are disinfected after use.

Dining
•    The majority of restaurants and bars are now open and with many hotels still closed, there is plenty of room for everyone.
•    Tables, both inside and outside are spaced, 1 metre apart so that social distancing can be maintained.
•    Masks do not need to be worn whilst eating or drinking but you will need to wear one in the restaurant when not seated. 
•    Restaurants, bars, cake and ice-cream shops must close by midnight and from 9pm can only serve customers who are seated at a table.

Banks
•    Cash, debit and credit cards are accepted in shops and supermarkets
•    Banks are open but numbers allowed inside are limited.  There is usually a queue outside and people are called in on an individual basis by a member of staff.

Transport
•    The local bus service is limited so it’s advisable to check timetables before travelling. Masks must be worn on all public transport.
•    Taxis are available as usual but the number of people who are allowed to travel is limited to 2 and the front passenger seat cannot be used.  It may be possible that the driver takes 3 passengers in an 8-seat vehicle.   Masks must be worn throughout the journey.
