The situation of the majority of businessmen and entrepreneurs in Ibiza is very delicate, and with the new restrictions derived from the passage of the island of Ibiza to Level 4 of extreme risk of health alert, the situation has become critical for the vast majority.
For this reason, the Balearic Government, in collaboration with the island councils and city councils, is going to launch a series of direct aid for the sectors most directly affected, of 1.500 euros per month until the month of March at most. In total, up to 4.500 euros of direct aid.
