Canary Islands: List of regional covid restrictions for Tenerife, Lanzarote & Gran Canaria

Britons after some winter sun have been relieved by the news that the Canary Islands are back on the travel corridor list for England. Holidaymakers are now able to jet off to the hotspot without the requirement to quarantine on their return home.

However, holidaymakers must still follow rules put in place by local authorities in the Canary Islands.

In order to maintain these levels, regional authorities have put in place a new “traffic light” system across the islands.

How might the new restrictions impact upcoming holidays?
