COVID-19 | Tenerife raised to alert level 2

COVID-19 | Tenerife and Gran Canaria go to alert level 2

The update of measures will be effective at 00.00 hours this Monday, February 22, once the extraordinary restrictions approved for the carnival period expire.

The Ministry of Health has agreed this Sunday, February 21, after analysing the evolution of the indicators to raise the island of Tenerife to alert level 2 and lower Gran Canaria to this same level, while El Hierro and Fuerteventura go to level 1. The islands of Lanzarote and La Graciosa remain unchanged, which continues at level 4, and La Palma and La Gomera at level 1. The changes will come into effect coinciding with the weekly update and will remain in effect until February 28, except in the case of Tenerife, which will be until March 7.
