Lanzarote Covid update

The European Commission has proposed creating a Digital Green Certificate (Note not using the word "passport") to facilitate safe free movement inside the EU during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Digital Green Certificate will be proof that a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19, received a negative test result or recovered from COVID-19. . It will include a QR code to ensure the security and authenticity of the certificate. Member States remain responsible to decide which public health restrictions can be waived for travellers.

Note: I would expect individual countries to come to an agreement with the UK on a Covid-19 passport / certificate as discussions between the EU and UK may take a while....

Number of Covid-19 cases in Lanzarote

The number of active cases in Lanzarote is now down to 78, which translates to 55 cases per 100,000 , The UK in comparison is 59 cases per 100,000

Vaccination programme in the Canary Islands

The programme is stuttering mainly due to lack of consistent supply with 3.2% of the population vaccinated 2 weeks ago is 2.5%, hopefully there will be a step change in the coming weeks

Key dates to look out for............

March 30 - when the Spanish Government is due to announce any changes to entry requirements into Spain

April 12 - UK government's Global Travel Taskforce will reconvene to issue a report recommending how international trips can resume safely.

May 17 - Hopefully the date International travel might recommence
