The Ministry of Health has agreed this Thursday, September 30th, after analyzing the evolution of epidemiological data, to drop the alert level in the case of Fuerteventura from level 3 to level 2 and in the case of Gran Canaria from level 2 to level 1. These are the only changes in alert levels this week in the Canary Islands.
This means that: Fuerteventura and Tenerife will be at level 2; Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, El Hierro, La Gomera and La Palma are all at 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:
So currently in the Canary Islands archipelago, there are 5 islands placed at Alert Level 1: Gran Canaria El Hierro, La Gomera, Lanzarote, La Palma and 2 islands placed at level 2: Fuerteventura and Tenerife.
The level changes will take effect at 00:00 this Friday.
