The health alert Level 3 on Gran Canaria, and restrictions on the Canary Islands, remain generally unchanged, it was announced on Thursday, after the finalisation of the extraordinary enhanced measures adopted over the easter holidays, with the exception that normal mobility between islands is to be restored, depending on the alert level in force on each island, and therefore it is no longer, in general, restricted, across the entire archipelago, to travel only for work, appointments for medical conditions, due to the illness of a relative or to return to the island of residence, or failing all of that with a requirement for negative diagnostic test to certify no active infection.  Travel between the islands will now return to normal rules, with masks and social distancing measures, or as per the restrictions for the alert level in force on the islands in question.
