GRAN CANARIA ALERT LEVEL 2 – BASIC DOs & DON’Ts
Here are the list of basic rules for Gran Canaria as we move down to Alert Level 2 (Amber). Bars and restaurants can open again for indoor service. Camping sites, recreational parks and children’s play areas can reopen. Inter island travel restrictions are also lifted completely and no tests are needed for other level 1 and 2 islands. A new modification to the regulations also allows tourism at Alert Level 3, but you need a negative Covid-19 test, just like the rules were during Easter.
