Restricciones semana santa canarias
Canary islands state of alarm
This Friday, April 9, at 24.00 hours, the special restrictions adopted in the Canary Islands on the occasion of Easter Week will come to an end. Among them, the perimeter closure of all the islands with the obligation to show a negative PCR for the mobility among them, which concludes now with general character although it will remain in force in the islands with sanitary alert level 3 or 4.
From this Saturday, therefore, the restrictions in force in each island are again limited to those of each alert level. That is, as long as the regional government does not adopt additional measures for a specific island due to its epidemiological data, as has already happened when a “reinforced” level 2 was created for Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura in mid-March.
There will also be changes regarding the curfew at the end of the Easter Week measures. Thus, those in level 1 (for now, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro) will return to the nighttime traffic restriction from 00.00 hours, instead of from 23.00 hours.

The measure will come into force at 00.00 hours on March 26 and will last until April 9 – Tourism in the Archipelago will be allowed as long as there is a negative infection test.
The specific restriction measures for Easter Week in the Canary Islands will be in force from 00.00 hours on Friday, March 26th until 24 hours on April 9th, announced this Thursday the Minister of Health, Blas Trujillo, after the celebration of the Council of Government.
In the case of passengers coming from the Peninsula, they will also have to have a negative PCR and residents in the islands, such as students, will be able to return, one of the exceptionalities established by the Interterritorial Council of Health in view of the Easter Week, in which the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands will not have perimeter closure and the rest of the autonomous communities will.
Regarding the free circulation of people at night, it has been agreed that alert level 1 will be equal to 2, that is to say, between 23.00 and 06.00 hours, while in alert level 2 the curfew will be the same as 3, set between 22.00 and 06.00 hours. Essential activities will remain outside these time controls, as in the past.
Canary islands restrictions covid
One of these measures has to do with the entry into the Autonomous Community of people coming from the rest of the country, which will be limited to the cases included in Royal Decree 996 of 2020.
Regarding the entry and exit of people between islands, the restriction of mobility will be set -regardless of the alert levels- for these same assumptions of Royal Decree 996. In case that any mobility does not respond to the casuistry of this one, a negative diagnostic test of active infection will be demanded to be able to move at inter-island level. Likewise, controls in ports and airports of the Autonomous Community will be strengthened.
Regarding free circulation at night, the curfew is set between 23.00 and 06.00 hours in alert level 1 and alert level 2 is equated to level 3, so that the curfew is set between 22.00 and 06.00 hours. These limitations, in any case, will not affect essential activities.

The Council of Government agreed this Thursday, March 17, to adopt a set of specific and temporary measures for the period between 00.00 hours of March 26 and 24.00 hours of April 9, coinciding with the celebration of Easter Week.
The Minister of Health, Blas Trujillo, also informed about the changes in the level of the islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, which are now level 3, while the rest of the islands remain in the current situation. That is to say, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro remain at level 1, and Lanzarote and La Graciosa, at level 2. This change will take place on Monday of this week at 00:00 hours.
Among the measures that the Governing Council agreed to modify is the opening of gyms in level 3 at 33 percent of its capacity, maintaining the distance of 2 meters and with the obligation to wear a mask at all times. In restaurants, at all levels, it is allowed to extend the opening to 24:00 hours only for food delivery service, which does not include food service to pick up on the premises.
