Canary Islands Safe Destination
Travelling to Tenerife in COVID – 19 times
Few thought that this pandemic would last so long, and even fewer thought that there would be a possible second wave. What is clear is that COVID 19 has placed every country in the world under scrutiny for cleanliness and sanitación, relentless of the economy situation and amongst everything ,it has affected directly and indirectly the pleasure of holidaying and travel.
Since Summer, many of us have decided to take hold of our lives and with all restrictions and information on board, decided to travel. But at the time of booking, there are questions, and one of them is sure to be , which destination is safe? Let´s start by sections.
Is it safe to travel?
Well it depends, why should it depend? Well there should be no risk if restrictions and sanitary recommendations are being followed.
You could be forgiven for thinking if air travel is secure, that the close proximity to other passengers is high risk. For our piece of mind, the aircrafts are equipped with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) which absorb around 99% of microbes that can exist in the atmosphere, also the airlines have a very high hygine regime regardless.
Are the Canaries a safe destination?
It can be complicated to guarantee the safety 100% to be COVID free at a certain destination,but if lots of effort has been taken to reduce the risks , it can be said that the risk is low.
The Canary Islands have the second off least amount of incidents per 100.000 habitants, according to the Autonomic Community of Spain. That alone would give you confidence, but also the new agreement set in place by the Board of Tourism, Industry and Commerce and the Canarian Government of the plan taken up by the insurance company AXA for the subscription of a Covid – 19 travel assistance insurance, would give peace of mind to the traveller. This would mean that there is guaranteed coverage of medical bills, repatriation and if needed prolonged stay due to a quarantine related positive result. This agreement has been taken by the Autonomic Community, the Canaries being the first to benefit for it´s tourism.
How can I get around Tenerife during this pandemic?
