Tenerife is to continue with COVID-19 restrictions for another fifteen days

Tenerife to continue with COVID-19 restrictions for another fifteen days

The Government of the Canary Islands has agreed to extend the restrictions imposed in Tenerife for another fifteen days due to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic on the island, while in the coming weeks it will determine the additional rules that will be imposed in the Canary Islands for Christmas.

The spokesman for the Executive, Julio Pérez, stated in the press conference that followed the Government Council that the situation of the pandemic in Tenerife has not worsened, but that it has also not improved enough to suspend these restrictions.

This new extension will be in force until December 10, the Minister of Public Administrations has specified, who has stated that the reason the situation is not improving in Tenerife can not be attributed to one single cause, although in general there is [an issue of] compliance with the measures.

Pérez has indicated that there are private areas in which these measures are not followed "with intensity" and a small breach, he said, "may produce effects that are not small."

Also Pérez has indicated that in the coming weeks the Government will dictate additional regulations to those currently in force and related to the upcoming Christmas holidays. These regulations refer to limiting the number of attendees at family reunions, restricting mobility and cutting the hours of hotel and restaurant activities.
