It was announced yesterday, November 11th, that due to a rise in the number of new infections Fuerteventura will go back to alert level 2, while the rest of the Canary Islands will remain at level 1.
And how does it affect visitors coming to the Canary Islands?
The differences that you may note as a tourist between level 1 and level 2 restrictions are reduced opening hours for bars and restaurants (establishments must close one hour earlier on islands at level 2) and reduced capacity in bars, cafes, and restaurants, both indoors and outdoors.
You can see below the main differences and you can also consult the full official document in Spanish (link below).
Level 2 rules measures
Level 1 rules and measures
These are some of the measures in place at level 1 that might impact you as a visitor to the Canary Islands, but you can also check the full official document, which is available only in Spanish.
The use of masks is mandatory for adults and children over 6 years of age in closed spaces for public use (except for food intake) and in outdoor spaces where it is not possible to maintain an interpersonal safety distance of 1.5m. People with disabilities or respiratory disease are exempt.
This means that you need to wear a mask when going into shops, supermarkets, etc.
The mask rules are the same everywhere in the Canary Islands, as they are not related to the alert levels on each island.
