What can be done in the Canary Islands after ending the state of alarm?

UPDATE 11/05/2021: The Canary Islands executive has announced that it will stop applying the curfew after the regional Justice has not endorsed it

The Government of the Canary Islands will stop applying the curfew as of this Monday night as it did not receive judicial support for the decision adopted last Thursday to extend this exceptional measure once the state of alarm at the national level had ended. The regional executive also desists from applying perimeter closures on islands with high rates of contagion.

This has been announced by the spokesman for the Canarian Executive, Julio Pérez, after the emergency meeting of the Governing Council held Monday 10 May, after the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) resolved that it is not appropriate to clarify its resolution regarding the restrictions in the autonomous community.

The TSJC had already ruled last Sunday against maintaining the curfew and the perimeter closures of the islands, but the regional government had asked for a clarification. At first, the Executive had chosen to keep the measures in force as they were applied in the archipelago before the state of alarm finished

Canarias dejará de aplicar el toque de queda después de que la Justicia autonómica no lo haya avalado

[ED: So for now, no curfew. All other measures, presumably still apply. We'll keep an eye on this. Things may change once the health data is analysed again this week.]

The regional measures came into force at midnight this Saturday

What can be done in the Canary Islands after ending the state of alarm at midnight Saturday to Sunday? Well, the same things that could be done so far on each island according to the different levels of alert established according to its epidemiological evolution under the umbrella of the state of alarm.

The Government of the Canary Islands has decided to maintain the restrictions on night mobility (curfew), the limitation of groups, the limited capacity in restaurants and in public places and places of worship, as well as controls in ports and airports. It is also not ruled out to close the perimeter of individual islands again if necessary in the event that any of them rises to level 3, which would prohibit all travel except for essential reasons.


Curfew: from 23:00 to 06:00 on the islands on level 2: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, El Hierro and Lanzarote. In the islands in level 1, La Palma, La Gomera and Fuerteventura, the night mobility restriction is established between 00:00 and 06:00 hours.

There are no restrictions on entering and leaving the islands, although a negative Active Infection Diagnostic Test (PDIA) must be provided, that is, a PCR or antigen test.

Social gatherings: Limitation to six people in the islands at level 2 and, in the islands at level 1 to 10 people.

Hospitality: In Tenerife, Gran Canaria, El Hierro and Lanzarote: outdoor terraces allow tables of six people and a maximum capacity of 75%. Inside, tables will have a maximum of 4 people and the capacity is limited to 50%. Premises must close at 23:00. In the rest of the islands, tables with up to 10 people are allowed on the terraces and there is no capacity limitation outside. Inside, the capacity is reduced to 75% and the diners at each table will be a maximum of six people. Closing time on islands at level 1 will occur at 00:00 hours.

The regional president, Ángel Víctor Torres, affirms that the measures that have been taken have resulted in the control of the pandemic "so we must not change anything" and stressed that, as has happened so far, every Thursday, the situation will be evaluated and decisions will be made in this regard based on how the infection levels evolve on each island.
