The Canary Islands have become the last Spanish region to make face masks obligatory

The Canary Islands have become the last Spanish region to make face masks obligatory in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors, and have also followed Galicia in imposing a smoking ban in all outdoor public spaces where a safe distance can’t be maintained.
Regional president Angel Victor Torres announced the extraordinary measures – which come into force from today – after the Canaries registered a recent rise in Covid-19 infections.
He said smoking will not be allowed in open spaces or in places where there are crowds, if there’s not sufficient social distancing, and that this will include terraces of bars and restaurants. Dancefloors across the Canaries will also close and capacity for late night establishments will be set at 75%
