The UK’s chief veterinary officer, Prof Christine Middlemiss, said that there was still no evidence that pets could transmit the disease to humans.

Mains water supply to Frangata and Valsamata likely to be interrupted tomorrow, Tuesday, 28 July, due to maintenance works being carried out from 09:00 until completion of work (...hopefully the same day / week / month).

Coronavirus: UK advises against non-essential travel to Spanish islands

The UK has updated its advice against all non-essential travel to Spain to include the Balearic and Canary Islands following a rise in coronavirus cases.

Foreign Office guidance was changed on Monday to include both mainland Spain and islands such as Ibiza and Tenerife.

Holiday firm Jet2 has told passengers not to go to the airport after it cancelled flights to all Spanish destinations.

The change is in addition to the self-isolation policy that began on Sunday.
