Restaurants have to collect client data in Levels 1 and 2 if eating inside
Under a resolution in the Boletin Oficial de Canarias (BOC), in Levels 1 and 2 all hospitality venues that serve food inside their venue, ie not including the terrace, must collect data of all clients so that if there is any sort of coronavirus outbreak or contagion, they can be called upon to give the health authorities the information to trace people if needed.
This is published in the Boletin number: boc-a-2021-083-2194 section j, where it states:
“In order to facilitate the follow-up of contacts in positive cases of Covid-19, a record of customers will be kept from food and dinner services in indoor areas of restaurants that includes name and surname, ID number/NIE, telephone number, and date and time of the service at the establishment. This record will be kept at the disposal of the health authorities, for a period of month after they visited.”
This means that any hospitality venue that serves food inside it’s premises, whether a bar, café, or restaurant, has to comply with these regulations, as do the clients. Failure to do is seen as a breach of Covid health measures, and can result in fines for the establishment in the same way as breaking any other of the current restrictions.
Also remember, that in Level 2, (Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote) the maximum capacity allowed inside is 50% with the correct 2 metre spacing between the backs of the chairs from table to table, and a maximum of 4 people can dine together (unless co-habitants). Outside it is 75% with 6 people per table.
