The superior court of justice (TSJC) has ruled in favour this time to implement the mandatory use of the vaccination certificate if an Island is in level 3 or 4. The measure comes into play from December 25th and will be in place for at least a month before being reviewed.
What does this mean?
Tenerife is currently in Level 4 so to enter establishments you must show one of the following:
- Your vaccination certificate
- A negative Covid-19 test which was taken within the last 48 hours
- A recovery certificate no older than 180 days.
Who is impacted?
- Establishment venues that have a capacity of more than 30 people so hotels and restaurants.
- Nightlife venues that have a capacity of more than 30 people or if the consumption of food is allowed.
- Venues or activities taking place with a capacity of more than 30 people.
- If you want to attend the doctors with someone or if you want to visit someone in a health centre or hospital.
- The certificate must be shown regardless of the venue or establishment being in an open or closed space.
- The Covid certificate must be presented to enter cinemas.
- Music festivals, sporting events, and public shows, attended by more than 500 people.
The process when you arrive at the venue is to present your QR code to be scanned. None of your details will be stored.
If our covid levels drop and we move into level 1 or 2 the certificate will no longer be mandatory. But, businesses will have an option to keep the certificate in place. By doing so they will be able to follow the rules of a level below.
