Tenerife goes to alert Level 1... with restrictions!
Following the weekly Governing Council meeting this afternoon that reviews the epidemiological data of the islands, the Government spokesman, Julio Perez, announced that the regional Government is establishing a series of extraordinary measures during Carnival, specifically from 00:00 hours on February 12th (tomorrow) for 10 days until 00:00 hours on February 22nd, to prevent that an increase in infections occurs after these dates.
In a press conference to give an account of the Governing Council agreements, he indicated that all current alert levels are being extended, ie Lanzarote at level 4, Gran Canaria at level 3, Fuerteventura and El Hierro at level 2, and La Gomera and La Palma iat level 1, except in Tenerife, which drops to Level 1, although the extraordinary measures for the next ten days will prevail.
Regarding these restrictions, Pérez pointed out that in many municipalities next Tuesday will be a bank holiday and that on these days there may be concentrations of people in public or private places that imply a greater probability of contagion.
So, specifically, from February 12th to 22nd, a maximum group of non-cohabitating people of six people is established in levels 1 and 2, four in level 3 and two in level 4.
Likewise, a curfew will be established that will run from 10pm to 6 am on all islands regardless of the level of alert they are in.
Similarly, in hospitality, the maximum number of people per table will be six in levels 1 and 2, four in level 3 and two in level 4; while the closing time will be at 10:00pm on levels 1, 2 and 3, and at 6:00pm on level 4.
At the same time, the capacity of public transport is limited to 50% and parties, concentrations or festivals, public or private, that encourage the gathering of people without a control of the anti-covid measures, will not be allowed.
Full details of capacities and other measures for Level 1 will be confirmed in the BOC tomorrow.
