  1. if the Canary Islands covid rate is under 50 cases per 100,000 is it likely Canary Islands will be added to the new EU travel list when published in mid October? Or is it known if the new EU traffic light system will separate the canary’s and other regional areas from mainland Spain?

    1. Hi John. It depends on what they and who agree on the 15th. For example, my own country Ireland has been ignoring the rest of the EU or cherry-picking as it suits them. The Canaries will be looking to be treated separately to mainland Spain. The local press has been saying that Germany will re-open to the Islands if it goes under 50. Germany did treat the Canary Islands separately to mainland Spain before the recent spike in cases.
