Tenerife raises to Level 4 from July 26

Governing Council of the Canary Islands

The rate of infections continues to rise on the island of Tenerife, so the Government of the Canary Islands has raised the island to epidemiological alert level 4 this Thursday.

The effective date that the corresponding preventive measures are applicable will be from 00:00 on July 26 to August 5, 2021, inclusive, being subject to periodic revaluations.

The Minister of Health has explained that Level 4 will maintain the capacity of Level 3 in hospitality, sports or cultural activities in closed spaces, but all people (+18) will be asked for a vaccination certificate, to have already recovered from the disease or had a negative diagnostic test. These level changes mean that in Tenerife there may only be two people per table in restaurants, with a maximum capacity of 50% indoors and the COVID certificate will be required to access these.

There may be four diners on islands at level 3, six on level 2 and ten on El Hierro. Only in the latter will nightlife open and, in all of them, bars and restaurants must close at midnight.

The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands on 22 July notified 914 new cases of coronavirus COVID-19. The total accumulated cases in the Canary Islands is 72,344 with 9,674 active, of which 60 are admitted to the ICU and 342 remain hospitalized. In the last hours there has been no death in the Archipelago linked to the coronavirus.

The Accumulated Incidence at 7 days in the Canary Islands stands at 220 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and at 14 days at 390.91 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

New measures for level 4

According to the agreement approved 22 July, in order to reduce health risk and as a complementary measure to those that are already applicable in this sector, it will be necessary to present, for those over 18 years of age, the COVID-EU vaccination certificate, or present a Negative Active Infection Diagnostic Test (carried out in the last 72 hours) or having overcome the infection in the last six months to be able to access the interior of the restaurants and hotels on the islands that are at alert level 4. 

Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council adapts the use of public spaces to the new measures included in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC), as a result of the review of prevention measures, in which the island de Tenerife rises to alert level 4, highlighting the vaccination certificate to be able to access the interiors in restaurants, cultural activities and sports venues. [Other municipalities are taking similar measures.]

In spaces such as the Rastro, which from this Sunday will have a capacity limitation of 33%. While the children's and youth camps, both indoors and outdoors, can be carried out with a capacity of 33%, with a maximum of 20 people -including monitors-, in groups of maximum 4 people. The capital's playgrounds have also been closed.

Sports activity, as of Monday, July 26, only individual practice can be carried out, as long as the interpersonal distance of 2 meters is maintained. Activities that do not allow the maintenance of said distance will be prohibited. In indoor sports practice, the use of a mask will be mandatory and the vaccination certificate will be required, for the moment without exception of age, pending the consultation made to the Government of the Canary Islands.

Finally, in the municipal indoor swimming pools, two people per lane will be allowed, while in the open ones, such as the Acidalio Lorenzo, it will be four people per lane, at the times established by the Sports area of ​​the Santa Cruz City Council. 

Taxis: On the islands with the worst pandemic figures at levels 3 and 4, the restrictions that were already in force are maintained, that is, only two occupied places per row of seats and no one next to the driver, as a preventive measure. 

The Higher Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) has ratified the decision of the regional government to limit the maximum number of people who do not live together in family and social gatherings in both closed or outdoor public spaces. These are 10 people in alert level 1; 6 people on level 2; and a maximum of 4 people at levels 3 and 4.
