El Consell de Formentera recolza el comerç de proximitat amb una campanya de promoció arran de la crisi sanitària

cartell 2020 compra a propEl Consell de Formentera, a través de l’àrea de Comerç, ha posat en marxa una campanya de suport al petit comerç de l’illa amb l’objectiu de promocionar els establiments de proximitat que tenen autorització per tenir obertes les portes durant l’estat d’alarma provocat pel Covid-19.

La consellera de Comerç, Ana Juan, ha subratllat que l’objectiu és “visibilitzar i impulsar la necessitat de mantenir el teixit comercial tradicional i de proximitat; i també donar suport al consum dels productes locals”.

Ana Juan ha informat que en l’actualitat hi ha una trentena de comerços oberts en els principals nuclis urbans de l’illa i ha destacat que quan passi l’estat d’alarma el Consell “mantindrà i reforçarà el seu suport a tot el teixit comercial de l’illa que s’ha vist afectat per aquesta situació”.

Amb el lema ‘Formentera es queda a casa i compra a prop de casa’, la campanya es desenvolupa per les xarxes socials i suports digitals i se suma també a la iniciativa de l’Institut d’Innovació Empresarial de les Illes Balears que promociona els comerços amb el lema ‘Ara els petits s’han de fer grans’.

Mesures de seguretat i control als comerços

D’altra banda, el Consell recorda la necessitat de mantenir les mesures de seguretat i control arran de la crisi sanitària, com són mantenir la restricció d’entrada als comerços, respectar la distància de seguretat d’1,5 a 2 metres, no recolzar-se al mostrador, entrar segon l’ordre establert pel personal del comerç i utilitzar guants en manipular fruita, verdura i aliments sense envàs.

Thank you card from the president of the Consell de Formentera to children and youth of the island

foto 2020 carta als jovesDear friends,

You’ve been stuck at home for two weeks now. We know this isn’t easy, so as president of the Consell de Formentera and on behalf of the entire local governing team, I’m writing this message especially for the children and youth of Formentera.

The weekend of 14-15 March was a different one. You left classes on Friday knowing you wouldn’t be back for weeks. You’d been hearing about coronavirus for a few days already; your parents and teachers had likely already talked to you about the new illness, Covid-19, and the need to take steps to avoid its spread.

And then suddenly, you’re faced with measures that are extremely difficult and, at first blush, difficult to understand. And it wasn’t just schools that were closing; the cinema and Casal de Joves shut their doors too, extracurricular activities were cancelled and you were stuck at home.

The strangeness began that first weekend. Your parents told you that you couldn’t go outside. Not even to see your grandparents, get groceries, go to the beach, hang out with friends or sweethearts; not even to do exercise or play in the town square or at the park.

And it’s stayed that way since then, day in and day out, as if you were grounded. No, you’re not grounded, no. By staying inside we’re battling a virus that’s forced drastic decisions worldwide; you’re experiencing the first-hand effects right now.

Every day you’re making a huge effort by doing schoolwork from home. And I know you miss your classmates, your teachers, your friends and your routines. Your normal classes have become online classes, your parents have to help you with home- and classwork and, worse still, many of them —those that aren’t stuck working from home like you— have to keep going in to work. Keep in mind that all of this is new and difficult for adults, too.

You, the children and youth of Formentera, are showing us how it’s done. In each and every home you serve as lessons in patience and effort. I’m sure you’ll find a way to make the most of the extra time with your families. And, for Formentera’s youngest, I hope that new tools in digital communication are helping you keep in touch with the friends who are so important to you.

But effort, strength and smarts aside, it’s totally normal to have moments where you feel like giving up. If you do, I want you to know I’m here by your side to help you get back up. And if you’re worried about something, you can tell me about it in an email, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

And remember, above all, that when we come out on the other side of this thing that has turned our little world upside down, we’ll be stronger. Don’t doubt it for a second.

Formentera Local Police enforce safety measures at construction sites

foto 2020 policia control obresIn an effort to limit coronavirus exposure and safeguard the health of not just workers but islanders at large, local law enforcement have taken to construction sites across the island to raise awareness and see to it that safety measures are being respected.

As the Covid-19 health crisis continues, construction is one of the sectors of the economy that remains active, with agreement still elusive regarding the reduction or suspension of services. Even still, staff of construction firms are required to adopt a series of specific preventive measures.

Among the health protocol that businesses and employees must follow are preventive measures as regards travel and construction workers.

Local officers of the law oversee patrols and hand out material to educate people on steps to follow such as physical distancing, thorough cleaning of tools and machinery and proper use of safety materials.

Weekend of stops on highways and country roads
Chief of interior Josep Marí applauded “the fabulous work during the health crisis of local police”. “Officers are already stopping people on highways and backroads and this weekend those patrols will be ramped up across country roads and at the entrances of beaches and the nature reserve”, he said, saying that the idea is to make sure everyone obeys the rules of confinement or else has a valid motive for leaving the house. Members of Civil Protection will be deployed to help as well.

Formentera’s police officers, too, will be following a set of strict measures to avoid transmission of coronavirus amongst themselves. Although partners will remain fixed so one sick officer doesn’t contaminate the whole force, officers will no longer travel two to a car. Officers must also wash their hands and their vehicles, among other measures, indicated Conseller Marí.
