Gibraltar is somewhere we haven't heard much if anything being reported. On paper it could seal itself off, but is there too much dependence on people commuting to and from Spain?

Gibralter currently has had 176 cases, 174 recoveries and no deaths. 2 cases are outstanding. It has tested about 30% of its population.
It seems the vicinity of Spain has not wreaked too much disaster.

The border has been closed, but it reopened last week.
