Tenerife increases COVID-19 restrictions and implements 'rule of six' for 14 days

Tenerife increases COVID-19 restrictions

Tenerife will limit meetings to six people for 14 days

Tenerife residents will only be able to meet, both publicly and privately, in groups of 6 people and will see the most empty bars and restaurants for the next two weeks. The Governing Council of the Canary Islands has approved the reduction of the number of people who can meet in groups to a maximum of 6 people - until now it was 10 - and has limited the capacity of most of the public spaces to one third indoors and 50% outdoors. These restrictions will remain in force for the next 14 days from their publication in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC), which they expect to be published between today and Saturday.

People who for health reasons cannot wear a mask are prohibited from going to closed places or mass events and only essential mobility is recommended.

Restaurants to close at 11pm and terraces limited to 50% capacity

The Canarian Executive recommends "avoiding closed spaces", although "classes will continue normally" with "maximum" vigilance. 

In the restaurant sector, the capacity of bars is reduced to a third of the maximum, closing time is at 11 pm and the capacity on the terrace will be half the usual.

Smoking is prohibited on terraces, the capacity in tourist establishments drops to a third in common areas, active tourism groups drop to 20, commercial premises will have a capacity of half and visits will be prohibited in student residences.

Recreational, youth or neighbor centers will be closed. In companies, the capacity in common areas will be one third, promoting virtual meetings; cinemas, theaters, museums or archives also one third indoors or 50 percent of the capacity outdoors.

Places of worship have capacity reduced to a third as well, with no services allowed outside. The capacity at wakes also goes to one third, at cremations there cannot be more than 5 people and the capacity and number of people at weddings and celebrations are reduced.

The beaches will have a maximum capacity of 50 percent, groups of 6 people maximum, while markets will also operate at half capacity and with delimited spaces.
