Fuerteventura is on Lockdown

Hot

We understood that Fuerteventura would be on lockdown due to Coronavirus and the State of Alarm being declared, and everywhere would be closed except for pharmacies and food shops from 07:00 on Monday March 16th for 15 days. People would only be allowed to leave their accommodation to buy food, visit a pharmacy, a cash machine,  or to seek medical treatment.

This seems to have come into effect yesterday with reports that bars, restaurants, shops and public spaces have been closed since yesterday evening so at the moment there is a total state of confusion and no real verifiable information.

Also it's not clear if the 15 days started yesterday or will start on Monday and to add to the confusion the situation appears to be different on different islands and also in different parts of Fuerteventura.

Apparently Jet2 and some airlines are providing rescue flights and are flying empty planes to Fuerteventura to take holidaymakers home.

Maybe the local authorities will return to work on Monday and update us on the situation, it's quite worrying that in a serious situation like this that the usual mañana syndrome continues with the usual lack of information.

We wish everyone luck in this strange situation, there is a coronavirus information phone number to call 900 112 0061.

Hopefully things will return to normal in a couple of weeks, we will update this page as and when verifiable information becomes available.

Mask Rules Tightened
Tightening on mask rules announced by the Canarian government

Masks must be worn in indoor public spaces at all times, unless eating or drinking. So when inside in bars and restaurants you should wear a mask when entering, leaving or visiting the rest rooms. Once seated with food or drink you may remove them whilst eating or drinking.

A maximum group allowed at a table has been reduced to ten people.

On public transport and in all shops and other indoor public areas masks must be worn at all times.

You are now required to wear a mask outdoors at all times with a few exceptions;

When swimming and sunbathing as long as you can maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from other people who are not from your household.

When out in natural open spaces as long as you can maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from other people who are not from your household.

The best thing to do is to have a mask with you at all times, and if you are walking for example and come across other people, put your mask on.

Wearing a mask in Fuerteventura is the law and there are on the spot fines for non compliance.

Fuerteventura enters The New Normal
Following 98 days of lockdown Fuerteventura moved into the “The New Normal”.

The New Normal is based around social distancing and keeping people from different households at least 1.5 metres apart.

This means everywhere including bars, beaches, cafes, hotels, restaurants, shops, sun beds, swimming pools etc.

Wherever that is not possible it is a requirement to wear a face mask which has become the norm in shops, on pubic transport, crowded streets or anywhere else where 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.

International flights to Fuerteventura have resumed.

Further details will be added as the situation evolves.
