TOURISTS CAN COME WITH NEGATIVE TEST AND ACCOMMODATION BOOKING
The Canarian president presented a package of measures last night that will be in force for 14 days from Saturday, including the fact that residents will be able to access the Island as usual, while non-residents must have an accommodation reservation and a negative test result to come to Tenerife.
The measures include:
- Curfew from 10 pm; except for 12.30am on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve;
- Restriction of meetings, public and private, only to cohabitants; Tenerife residents will not be able to meet another person in public or private spaces if they are not living together, that is, if they do not live in the same house.
- Recommendation not to move between municipalities;
- For essential inter-island travel,tests will be compulsory;
- Closure of the interiors of bar and restaurant establishments, whose terraces may only operate at 50% of their maximum capacity;
- The performance of activities that encourage not maintaining interpersonal safety distance or not wearing masks, such as concerts, dances, karaokes, etc, are prohibited.
- Restriction of entries and exits to the island by plane and boat for duly justified reasons, apart from tourists with accommodation reservations who have a negative Covid test.
This means that those people who are registered in the mainland or abroad, who intend to stay at the home of someone in Tenerife, whether family or friends, will NOT be permitted to do so.
Travellers who want to access the Island may do so only if they are Canarian residents or tourists with accommodation reservations and a negative test result.
These measures were announced by the President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, yesterday, after an extraordinary meeting of the Regional Government Council.

Torres described them as a "setback" for many, although he defended that they are adopted "for the good of the island's health, so that in 14 days the situation can be reversed, being aware of its involvement in the economic sector and in the productive fabric.”
On the main dates of Christmas, the 24th, 25th, 31st and on January 1st, a maximum of six cohabitants may be seated at the table, and, in the case of two cohabiting groups, they may not exceed that amount, although children from 0 to 6 years old are excluded. Also and it must always be the same two coexistence units.
Alert levels 3 and 4 are activated and maintained on the island, which is the maximum epidemiological red traffic light during this period too, so the Government of the Canary Islands reminds that everyone is obliged to comply with it without exceptions, while appealing to individual and collective responsibility to stop the contagion curve on the Island.
This morning, Thursday, the Citizen Security Board in Tenerife, which will be chaired by President Torres, has been scheduled for 9.00am to confirm ways of achieving maximum compliance with the measures approved by the Government of the Canary Islands by the public, and the maximum sanctions that will be applied to those who breach them.
