From tomorrow 11 May, Formentera ITV gradually resumes service

According to the National Health System’s Order 399/2020 published yesterday, 9 May, in the Official State Gazette (BOE), test centres may reopen during Phase 1 of confinement easing.

Highlighting the aim as “geting the service up and running again as soon as possible”, inspection services conseller Antonio J Sanz  described recent days’ work as “focused on implementing measures to prevent risks at the workplace and getting the ITV station up to snuff in light of Covid-19”. “New appointments can be scheduled from tomorrow”, said Sanz, “with priority for public transport and freight vehicles”.

Drivers who had an appointment that was canceled under emergency orders will be contacted from tomorrow so a new one can be scheduled; they are encouraged not to call. The local government wishes to remind motorists whose roadworthiness certification expired during the state of emergency that they can contact the station via email at itv@conselldeformentera.cat.

New measures will be in place when ITV service resumes:
-Visits are by appointment only.
-Accompanying administrative paperwork will be processed at a drive-up window without direct access to the office.
-Hand sanitiser dispensers have been placed across the entire station, and visitors must wear a mask.

“It’s our intent to progressively resume normal service”, said Conseller Sanz, who also pointed out that roadworthiness certifications that expired during the state of alarm are extended for the duration of emergency orders and in keeping with other previous decrees.

Islanders with questions can telephone the ITV’s appointment hotline (971 32 31 30) from Tuesday.
