The Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOE) on Saturday, July 4, publishes an agreement updating preventive measures for COVID-19 that relaxes restrictions for nightclubs and nightlife venues, accommodation establishments and public shows.

According to the agreement, the shared use of accommodation units by non-cohabitants is now allowed and groups of sunbeds must be separated by at least 1.5 meters from the next group or individual sunbed.

As for recreational, leisure and recreation activities, including sports, which are carried out sporadically and in places other than establishments intended for the habitual exercise of said activity and those carried out in removable or open-air facilities, they can be celebrated as long as the public remains seated or in sectors of groups of up to 15 people from their social or family environment and that it does not exceed 75% of the permitted capacity, with a maximum limit of 300 people for closed places and 1,000 people outdoors.

Nightclubs and nightlife

Nightclubs may open to the public exclusively for sitting or standing consumption, always in spaces previously reserved by the client.

The capacity in outdoor terraces will be 100% and in closed premises, 70%, with a maximum limit of 300 people for closed places and 1,000 outdoors, always maintaining the interpersonal distance or, failing that, with the use of a mask.

The access to discotheques will be in reserved groups of up to 8 people from their social or family environment, sitting or standing, and consumption will be directly served in each reserved area. In premises with a dance floor, this space will be occupied with tables or reserved areas, and it is forbidden to dedicate said space to its habitual use.

The agreement establishes that the security personnel of each location will be in charge of ensuring compliance with the interpersonal security distance and to avoid the formation of large groups and agglomerations.

Nightclubs must have frequent natural ventilation or, in case of air conditioning, a sufficient renewal of the air to be guaranteed, capturing the outside air in an appropriate place.

The objective of these measures is so that the social and economic activities carried out while this situation lasts are carried out with the appropriate guarantees for the protection of public health. Therefore, individual and collective commitment to compliance is essential, taking into account that in case of non-compliance, the sanctioning regime of Royal Decree-Law 21/2020, of June 9, will apply.
