The Ministry of Health announced today, Thursday, October 21, that all the Canary Islands will stay at alert level 1 due to their good epidemiological indicators.

The cumulative incidence at 7 days decreases in the entire Archipelago by 7.7% compared to the previous week and the occupation of hospital beds is at a very low-risk level, except in Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, which are at low risk.

According to the Public Health report, all the islands maintain a low or very low risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and the use of health services due to coronavirus decreases, so that all the territories of the Autonomous Community are located in the same alert level (level 1), identified as “green traffic light”.

During the last week, both the cumulative incidence at 7 and 14 days in all the islands are at low or very low risk. Specifically, the average 7-day accumulated incidence rate decreases in the Canary Islands archipelago as a whole by 7.7%, with respect to the previous week, so that from a daily average of 18.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants it has gone to 16, 7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The 7-day AI in Gran Canaria and Tenerife is at low risk and in the rest of the islands at very low risk, while at 14 days the AI ​​in the entire archipelago is at low risk.

100% of the people admitted in the ICU in the Canary Islands in the last 2 weeks did not have a complete vaccination schedule.


These alert levels and the local traffic lights system in the Canary Islands have nothing to do with UK's own traffic light system.  

The Canary Islands also use the traffic lights system to announce the level of local restrictions on each island in the archipelago, based on the rate of new cases registered. This article refers to the local alert level on each island, which is assessed weekly by the Government of the Canary Islands.

Current Alert Levels in the Canary Islands:

  • Alert Level 1: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, El Hierro, La Gomera, Lanzarote, La Palma, Fuerteventura
  • Alert Level 2: -
  • Alert Level 3: -
  • Alert Level 4: -
