Currently, the Covid data is updated two times per week in the Canary Islands, on Tuesdays and Fridays, so this is when this page gets updated as well.

La Gomera has 67 new positives, so it has 2,519 cases in total and 199 active cases, while El Hierro has 19 new cases, so it has 2,065 accumulated cases and 45 active ones.
On March 29, the Accumulated Incidence at 7 days in the Canary Islands stands at 425.79 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and at 14 days at 876.44 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
There have been several cases of Covid-19 confirmed among the immigrant arriving on the Canarias coasts, but all the persons who tested positive were isolated and the other people who arrived with them on the same boat are also quarantined. So there's no need to worry if you have plans to come over on holiday on the island.
According to the General Director of Public Health, these outbreaks do not represent a high threat for the local community and for tourists, as the immigrants are being tested as soon as they arrive and the ones who are positive are kept in controlled isolation, while the ones who are negative are quarantined and then retested after 10 days.
