Tenerife introduces stricter Covid restrictions

New Covid-19 restrictions have been introduced in Tenerife, as rising case numbers have prompted authorities on the Canary island to raise the coronavirus alert level to “very high risk”.

The new alert level four came into force on Monday (January 10), with increased regulations in pubs, hotels, restaurants and on public transport.

Pubs and restaurants have to shut down at midnight and public transport capacity is capped at 75% of pre-pandemic levels.

A maximum number of six people are now allowed to meet indoors or outdoors and Covid passports must be shown to enter establishments.

The increased measures will remain in force until at least January 24 when they will be reviewed again.
