More COVID restrictions have been introduced on Tenerife after the Canary Islands government raised the island’s COVID alert level to 4 – ‘very high risk’.
The level 4 rules limit the number of people meeting indoors or outdoors to a maximum of six, unless they are living in the same household, and everyone must show a COVID passport to enter venues.
Capacity levels have been cut to 75% outdoors and 33% indoors in most cases.
The measures will be in place until at least 24 January.
Lanzarote and La Palma have moved to Level 3, the same level as Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura.
The islands’ Minister of Health Blas Trujillo said cases across the islands have increased by over 46% in recent weeks.
