From Wednesday, 15 December 2021, new maximum allowed capacities and closing hours of establishments come into force, expandable with the use of the COVID certificate.

These measures come into force at 00:00 hrs, on December 15, and will run until 24:00 on January 10, 2022, without prejudice to the possibility of an extension depending on the evolution of the epidemiological situation. Establishments and activities that take advantage of the voluntary COVID certificate program for access control may benefit from an extension of the hours and capacity established at the level lower than the one on the island.

New maximum allowed capacities and schedules

These current hours and capacity were extended until December 15 through extensions of those set on September 30. The schedules and capacity are as follows in general:

  • Level 1: the closing time is set at 4:00 am and the outdoor capacity is 100 percent and 75 percent indoors.
  • Level 2: the closing time is established at 3:00 am and the outdoor capacity is 75 percent and 50 percent indoors.
  • Level 3: the closing time is established at 2:00 am and the outdoor capacity is 50 percent and 33 percent indoors.

Hours and capacity for establishments that use the COVID certificate:

  • Level 1: the hours are unlimited, with 100 percent capacity both indoors and outdoors.
  • Level 2: the hours are established until 4:00 a.m., with 100 percent capacity outdoors and 75 percent indoors.
  • Level 3: hours are established until 3:00 am, with 75 percent capacity outdoors and 50 percent indoors.

The modification of schedules and capacity responds to the existing epidemiological situation with a sustained rebound in the spread of SARS-CoV2, based on Decree Law 11/2021, of September 2, which states that the limiting measures that make up the different alert levels may be temporarily raised or totally or partially modulated by the health authority in the territorial areas that is possible, depending on the epidemiological situation.

The regulations also establish that the consumption of food and beverages will be allowed in the establishments and gambling establishments during all opening hours.

Level 4
However, it is recalled that at alert level 4, which has not been modified by the Governing Council, the closing hours of establishments are set at 1.00 a.m. and the maximum capacity allowed is 33 percent outdoors and 25 percent indoors. In the event that any island is at that level, establishments that avail themselves of the use of the COVID certificate will be able to benefit from closure at 2:00 a.m., outdoor capacity of 50 percent and 33 percent indoors.

Groups of people in spaces for public and private use (includes homes)

It is recalled that the current measures establishes the groups of people in spaces for public and private use, closed or outdoors, except those cohabiting, are the following:

  • Level 1: 12 people maximum, except in the case of cohabitants.
  • Level 2: 8 people maximum, except in the case of cohabitants.
  • Level3: 6 people maximum, except in the case of cohabitants.
  • Level 4: 6 people maximum, except in the case of cohabitants.

These limits remain, in the event that the COVID certificate is used, in the measures that prevail at the level immediately below that of the island in question.
