Germany has removed the Canary Islands from its risk list, meaning returning travellers do not need to quarantine on return.

From 24th October, German tourists can fly to and from the Canary Islands without any travel restrictions.

The Canary Islands are showing the lowest COVID-19 statistics in all of Spain.

The Spanish archipleago has an accumulated incidence of 43.45 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 7 days. Source.

Over the last 14 days, the accumulated incidence is 81.13.

Until last week, the Valencian Community enjoyed the lowest accumulated incidence in all of Spain for 25 days straight.

However, a spike in cases following the October ‘puente’ long weekend has seen infections rise again in the Valenican region – accumulated incidence over the last 7 days is now at 70.47, and over the last 14 days at 132.30.

It also comes as Spain yesterday became the first European country to 1,000,000 COVID-19 infections.

UK-German tour operator TUI also re-started flights to the Canary Islands at the beginning of October, gambling the German government would remove the region from travel restrictions.
