Canary Islands will impose fines of up to 3,000 euros for repeated failings in mask use

Mask use outside the home is compulsory in Spain

The Government of the Canary Islands approved a decree of law on Thursday, which it updates the sanctions for non-compliance with the regulations to contain the coronavirus pandemic and includes fines of up to 3,000 euros if the mask is repeatedly not used.

This was announced by the spokesman for the Executive, Julio Pérez, after the meeting of the Governing Council in which he stressed that the tightening of sanctions was necessary to achieve the double objective of facilitating the work of the security forces and "sending a message to the public that whoever does not comply, risks an important sanction."

The new decree, which will be published Friday or Saturday in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC), maintains the minimum fine for not using the mask at 100 euros.
