Bars, restaurants and gyms can reopen interiors in Tenerife today
Tenerife begins a period of fourteen days from today having been moved to alert Level 2 restrictions, equal to a yellow traffic light, having spent more than two months at alert Level 3, after successfully bending the curve of coronavirus contagion on the island, but it is no reason to relax otherwise Level 3 will be implemented again.
This means that, from today (Monday), the hospitality industry will be able to make use of their interior areas, gyms will be able to reopen, and the ‘perimeter closure’ of the island that prevented entering and leaving the Island without just cause comes to an end, among other measures.
PERMITTED IN LEVEL 2 RESTRICTIONS:
- Starting today in Tenerife the curfew will be at 11:00 pm and the restriction on entering and leaving the island is removed.
- There will be a maximum capacity of four non-living people in public and private spaces.
- Bars, restaurants and cafes must before 11:00pm, and their capacity is a maximum of 75% on terraces and 50% indoors, with a maximum of four people at each table.
- Gyms can re-open with a maximum of 50% in individual training, and the practice of collective sport indoors or outdoors is allowed, as long as there are no more than four people including the monitor/instructor.
- Visits to hospitals and social health centres are resumed.
- All usual Covid regulations still apply, i.e. social distancing, use of masks, sanitizing etc.

The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, said yesterday in a post on Twitter that “Tenerife changes its alert level on Monday due to the ‘improvement trend’ after weeks of tough restrictions”. He also reminded that the public need to continue in a responsible way and not lower their guard, or upon future reviews of data, which takes place every Thursday, the island could quite easily return to Level 3.
He also said that “the Canary Islands continues to be the most favourable Spanish community in the face of the evolution of the pandemic, and the responsibility of each of the Canary Islands and the Canary Islands residents, will help defeat the virus. We will achieve it".
