The TSJC authorises extension of voluntary Covid Certificate in Levels 1 and 2
Yesterday afternoon, Tuesday, the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) gave permission to the Canary Islands Government to extend some restrictions that are currently in force, including the voluntary use of the COVID certificate by hospitality businesses in alert Levels 1 and 2.
The request was for the extension of the ‘reward’ system that businesses can take advantage of by requesting the Covid Certificate for anyone to enter their business, i.e. the ability to use capacities, have groups sizes, and close at the limits in the Level below the one the island is in.
This means that those islands in Level 2, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro, can use the regulations for Level 1, and if any islands go down to Level 1, they will not have any group of capacity restrictions.
The TSJC have authorized the extension for a month because they say that the use of the Covid Certificate, “creates healthier environments that are safer and less likely to transmit the virus."
Currently, the Covid Certificate for proof of vaccination, or showing a negative test result, or as proof of recovery, is mandatory in the islands in Levels 3 and 4, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Fuerteventura, to enter bars, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and hotels.
