100 users of Santa Cruz shelter transferred to Adeje for quarantine after Covid outbreak
According to a Ministry of Health press release, four staff and four users of a municipal shelter in Santa Cruz de Tenerife have tested positive for Covid-19 forcing the centre to be closed and its users moved to a hotel in Adeje, in the south of the island, for their quarantine period.
The four workers are currently in home isolation, two of the users of the shelter have been admitted to hospital, and the remaining two are quarantined in a "housing resource".
The hundred that have been taken to the south have all tested negative, but have to remain in isolation for 10 days as they are contacts of those that are infected.
The two that have been hospitalized are currently in wards due to their health condition, and it is hoped they will recover without needing to enter ICU.
