Government and hospitality seek an agreement after Supreme Court ruling
The Canary Islands Government and the hospitality sector, as a result of the ruling by the TSJC to suspend the implementation of interior closures, have given themselves a period of 24 hours to try to reach an agreement that allows to bend the contagion curve of the virus on the island of Tenerife, without affecting the economic recovery of the sector. This is instead of the 3 days that the Government has to appeal against the TSJC decision.
This has been reported by the president of the Tenerife Cabildo, Pedro Martín, who appeared before the media after participating in a meeting attended by the president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres; the president of Fecam, María Concepción Brito, representatives of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), and the hospitality and commercial sectors of Tenerife and the Canary Islands.
Pedro Martín said that the hospitality representatives are aware that Tenerife is in a "very serious situation with the pandemic at the moment”, so they are willing to adopt some additional measures despite the judicial order, but it depends on what they are.
For this reason, tomorrow, Wednesday, a new meeting will be held in which the hospitality sector will propose "an intermediate point between level 2 and 3, with some restrictions in the interiors of their premises.”
Martín hopes that in tomorrow's meeting it will be possible to reach a consensus that will establish a "clear situation" because "we cannot be changing the rules of the game all the time." Likewise, he appealed to the responsibility of the sector and hoped that the proposal presented tomorrow would allow an agreement to be reached and avoid further legal disputes.
