  • More Lockdown News from The Canaries

    This is not official yet, but just to give you an idea that these possible dates that are currently on the table should the virus remain on its present course.

    May 12 small shops, workshops and dealerships opening

    May 23 opening of public parks.

    May 25 opening of personal services.

    May 26 opening of the national transit of the population.

    June 1 opening of cafes, restaurants and bars.

    June 6 opening of the study center (does not mean returning the students to the classrooms).??? No idea what this means.

    June 7 opening of hotels and tourist accommodation.***

    June 19 opening of the international transit of the population.

    June 23 opening for the performance of shows and sports.

    These are estimated dates. This note has been passed to me and it is what the government is considering if everything goes as it has been up to now. As you can see, until May 26 it will not be possible to move around normally.

    ***Unless the air traffic returns to normal with flights coming and going there does not seem to be much point in opening hotels and holiday accommodation on 7th June without customers. Maybe it is just to give the staff an opportunity to give accommodations a deep clean before the flights and customers begin returning later in the month.

    Below is an extract from TheTimeshare Consumer Association (TCA) Blogsite.

    This is not necessarily what is going to happen but is simply a scenario that has been put before the Spanish Parliament. Whether it has been or will be accepted is not clear at this moment in time. (1.00pm Wed 29th May)

    Some reports say that on the Spanish Islands. Baleirics and Canaries, people may be allowed out to walk from Saturday 2nd May. Other reports say it will be Monday 4th May before that can happen.

    Also any easing of the lockdown is totally dependent upon how the virus reacts to any easing. So each stage is not cast in stone but is dependent upon ongoing events. So as it stands at the moment the scenario below could well happen but it also could be the case that it alters.

    They also go on to say that Timeshare Resorts could reopen in mid May..

    But with the flights from other countries being restricted the opening of resorts could well be a pointless exercise.!

    What reopens when?
    • Small businesses and hotels can open from 11 May, but social distancing will remain in force
    • Though some schools will reopen in late May, most will stay closed until the new term begins in September.
    • Restaurants can start opening their terraces from mid-May, but they must not be more than 30% full during the first phase
    • Religious services can resume on a limited basis from 11 May, at no more than one third of the building’s capacity
    • Theatres and cinemas will reopen from late May, but again must be no more than a third full
    • Shops can open at half capacity from around the end of June, with two metres (6ft) between shoppers
    • Beaches are expected to reopen in late June

    Each phase of the de-escalation plan will last at least two weeks, and in the best-case scenario, the process will last eight weeks in all of Spain

      Exactly right.

      As this is said to be a new virus. Nobody can predict what will happen next and we have seen Germany lift restrictions too early which has now prompted a spike and the cases of infections have gone up again over there by 30%.
      What this will and has done is to make other countries more cautious as to how they go about creating and allowing a New Normal. I think we should just wait and see and allow things to happen as and when the authorities see fit.
      By all means keep us informed but we have to recognize that events and new data can change the status quo from one day to the next.

      Stay safe and follow the authorities guidelines.

        The lifting of some of the lockdown on the islands is showing little activity. Some Barbers and Hairdressers are now open for business again. No other shops, cafes, bars or restaurants are open as yet . I did pass a hardware shop that was open but other than the supermarkets and tobacconists/newspaper shops all are still closed as of 12 noon 4th May.
