fuerteventura level 1

The Ministry of Health has agreed this Thursday, October 14th, after analyzing the evolution of epidemiological data, to drop the alert level in the case of Fuerteventura from level 2 to level 1. This is the only change in alert levels this week in the Canary Islands.

This means that all the Canary Islands are currently at alert level 1. 


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: -

Fuerteventura was the only island in the Canaries that was still at level 2, so with this change, all the islands in the archipelago will be placed at level 1, which is a good thing, as it means it's the lowest level of restrictions due to the low incidence rate of the virus. 

The level changes will take effect at 00:00 this Friday.
