The Tenerife Island Corporation has made more than one hundred places available to accommodate tourists affected by Covid-19

ITER Bioclimatic Houses

The Cabildo de Tenerife (Island Corporation) has made available to the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands the more than one hundred places of the bioclimatic houses that are part of the Technological Institute of Renewable Energies (ITER) with the aim of welcoming, if necessary, tourists that could be affected by asymptomatic COVID-19 during their stay on the island.

The president of the island institution, Pedro Martín, has assured that the corporation has enabled a protocol for the 24 homes, with compliance with the measures established by the health authorities, and trusts the collaboration of the hotel management to be able to welcome tourists who test positive.

It specifies that the use of the dwellings will occur only in those cases in which the Ministry of Health so stipulates. "... for people who have tested positive and have no symptoms". "While they are housed, the relevant Covid protocols will be carried out in reference to cleaning and disinfection, waste collection or delivery of goods or food," he specified.

Martín explained that those people who are housed will have a bed equipped with sheets, towels and replacements for them; laundry service every three days, perishable staples to prepare breakfasts and snacks, plus a catering service for lunch and dinner.

The reception of the people who stay in the houses will be done by official tourist guides who, in coordination with the Government of the Canary Islands, will welcome and contact them every day, know their condition and with the objective that they feel, taking into account the circumstances, covered by a person who speaks their language.
