On Lanzarote

Lanzarote and Covid 19 one year on.

Date of writing – 12th of February 2021

Here is an interesting article for now and to look back on once things return to normal.

We are now one year into the Covid 19 pandemic. Vaccinations are quickly being administered and the end is in sight.

March 2020 saw the start and a full lock down in Lanzarote. This lasted about one month. Strict rules imposed no movement from home except for shopping, pharmacy and emergencies. Once over there were very few cases of Covid on Lanzarote. Tourism is the foundation of the Lanzarote economy so inevitably some cases would return but ironically mainly from visiting residents. The tourist resorts and population never had significant cases.

So whats it like on Lanzarote now you may ask. Well if you don’t count economic factors life is great. You can go out, go to beach, walk, do sports, get a tan and enjoy life. Have lunch and drinks in a restaurant.

Currently there is a high level of lockdown due to a peak of hospital cases last month of over 1,000 and 27 in intensive care. Cases a few weeks later have already dropped to 672 in total and 19 in ICU. Lockdown level will reduce again soon.
For up to date Covid stats see here https://www.lanzarotecovid19.com/en/

In the current high state of lockdown rules allow free movement except for from 10pm to 6am where you have to be indoors. Restaurants have to close by 6pm. Out of family groups are limited to two unless in a bar or restaurant. Masks worn if not eating or drinking.

Once adjustments are made for the rules you can relax and enjoy your time on the island. Spreading of the virus mainly occurs within residential families from off island visitors. The tourist population being isolated from these people on the whole has been ok.

Many people comment that its safer in Lanzarote than in more populated countries that do not observe face mask or hand cleaning like in Lanzarote. Retirees can relax and circulate with more peace of mind.

So again whats life like on holiday in Lanzarote now? Well once you get here its great. The weather is good, its warm, and the beaches are open.
