Lloret de Mar and Corona in 2020!
Just like everywhere in the world, the restrictions and restrictions in Lloret de Mar have changed quite a bit over the past year. Especially at the beginning of the pandemic and due to the high number of infections that Spain had at the time, there were very strict restrictions. So were the borders will be closed until mid-2020 and mouth masks were made compulsory both inside and outside. It didn't stop here because the shops too, restaurants, terraces and discotheques had to close their doors and even the beaches were not always accessible everywhere.
Then in the summer months of 2020 the corona figures were spiraling down, the government decided to relax the measures somewhat. The borders opened up and the millions of national and international tourists were warmly welcomed in the opened hotels, campsites and holiday homes! Supermarkets, gas stations, drug stores and many others too shops were allowed to open, restaurants were allowed to run indoors at a capacity of 50% and the terraces even on 75%. Also the beaches, field trips and amusement parks were drawn up, although this was done with a limited number of visitor restrictions! Of course this all happened with due observance of the corona rules: Keep a distance of 2 meters and wear mouth masks.
Although “normal” is a broad concept the summer of 2020, unlike many other countries, the Spanish tourist anyway a wonderful relaxing holiday full of possibilities!
