Gran Canaria and Lanzarote exceed the rate of 100 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants
Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, with 143.32 and 103.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last week, respectively, are the two islands that currently exceed the indicator set by the Government of the Canary Islands for the cancellation of events with more than 10 people during the next two weeks.
The new agreed measure establishes that in the islands where the number of new cases diagnosed in the last 7 days is higher than 100 per 100,000 inhabitants, mass events will not be authorized.
Also, in the case of restaurants, bars and terrace establishments, the closing time is brought forward to 00:00 at the latest, without new customers being admitted after 23:00 hours. This rule also applies to bars and restaurants situated on a hotel's premises.
The normative update agreed this Thursday by the Canary Islands Governing Council also includes other measures of a general nature, such as the recommendation to limit social encounters as much as possible, so that each person is advised to only meet with people from their inner social circle and also limit reunions at a maximum of people together at a time.
The use of masks is also now mandatory in all work environments.
