The Unipol Department of the Local Police in Santa Cruz, raided a hostess club last night located in the capital's Salamanca district. It is not the first time they have raided the establishment, due to reports of a lack of compliance with anti-covid health regulations by owners, workers, and clients.

Twenty-five sanctions were issued this time as agents charged and evicted people for various reasons, the management for operating without a licence, smoking inside, possession of drugs, obstruction of police work, breach of opening, and another 19 for not wearing the mandatory mask.

"Our island is still on a red traffic light and despite calls for responsibility, there are owners of premises and customers who continue to fail to comply," says a post on Twitter from the aforementioned police force published this morning.

The Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands announced yesterday that Tenerife will continue to be under a red traffic light until December 4th due to the persistence of the high incidence of coronavirus on the Island, with a cumulative incidence of 64.60 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 7 days and 136.08 over 14 days.

A police investigation is continuing into the hostess club and its owners for breach of regulations.
