Spain’s response to the covid pandemic is conducted through the autonomous regions’ health departments. In the Canaries, the regional Government has set alert levels 1-4 for the islands depending on case numbers and hospital and ICU admissions as well as fatalities. These data are all assessed by the Government frequently and regularly. Additional conditions may also be applied sometimes as necessary.

As a result, this is a complicated picture because apart from islands moving between the levels, the criteria for each level change too as needed, sometimes changing within days, if not hours, Everyone has to check, therefore, what the situation is in their particular case at the specific time that matters to them.
