What is the mask rule in Gran Canaria?

Masks are currently required at:
– Chemists, hospitals and any health establishments inc: blood donation centers and residential homes

It is suggested that mask use continue when mixing with the vulnerable. People 60+, anyone with chronic illness, pregnant women and vulnerable teachers continue to wear their masks in places with crowds or family gatherings.

Masks are also suggested when there is a particularly bad calima (duststorm) especially if you have respiratory problems. If the concentration of pollution is high, it can affect everyone.

Gran Canaria is no longer on alert level although this could change if the situation worsens in the future. In March 2022 all local restrictions were removed on Gran Canaria and the mask rule was dropped (with exceptions see above) on April 20th 2022. Data reporting has changed so from now on we will no longer be reporting active cases.
