The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands updated today, December 23, the health alert levels: Tenerife and Gran Canaria both stay at Alert Level 3, despite the increase in the number of new cases, while La Gomera moves to Alert Level 2.
This means that currently, the alert levels in the Canary Islands are the following:
La Gomera moving to Alert Level is the only change this week, the rest of the islands in the archipelago remain at the same alert level, meaning that Fuerteventura stays at level 3, along with Tenerife and Gran Canaria and El Hierro and Lanzarote and La Graciosa are the only Canary Islands that remain at level 1.
There has been a change in regards to closing times: the Governing Council has decided to suspend the decree by which the opening hours for leisure and restaurant establishments were made more flexible, which means that at alert level 1 places will close at 03.00 in the morning; at level 2, at 02.00 am and at levels 3 and 4 at 01.00 am.
Covid certificate update: in regards to making the Covid certificates mandatory as opposed to voluntary like it is now, the spokesman for the Government of the Canary Islands said that they are still waiting for "the judicial decision", of which they have "the hope and trust that the proposal will be ratified."
In Tenerife and in Gran Canaria, the care indicators for occupancy of hospital beds are at medium risk in Tenerife and at low risk in Gran Canaria and those of ICU beds, are at medium risk on both islands for the moment. Likewise, the rate of new hospitalizations per 100,000 inhabitants both in the ward and in the ICU is considered as low risk on both islands.
