Gran Canaria rises to alert level 2
Updated: Jul 9
The rest of the islands maintain the same alert levels.
Gran Canaria rises to Level 2. This is the decision taken in the Governing Council this afternoon in response to the increase in cases of coronavirus on the island.
The Government of the Canary Islands will request the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) to implement a curfew between 00:30 and 06:00.
Hospitality stays the same.
The sale of alcohol at a retail level will also be prohibited from 10:00 p.m.
There will be night closures (from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.) of beaches, parks, squares and other spaces where it is "anticipated that there may be crowds or boozy gatherings."
Public transport will have a capacity of 33% and the busiest lines will be reinforced.
Shows in enclosed spaces are prohibited if distances cannot be maintained or the use of a mask cannot be controlled, and events with an influx of more than 700 people are prohibited.
The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands today reported 513 new cases of coronavirus, a figure that beats the daily number of infections of the entire pandemic, that is, 33% more than the previous worst record of 385 cases, reached on September 4, 2020.
