This nightmare situation just got worse.  As we come within Spanish law, Tenerife and the other Canary Islands are in lock down immediately but will be enforced from Monday 8am for 15 days (but this may be extended)

You are only allowed out of you apartment or hotel room for essential purposes eg supermarket or pharmacy, all businesses including bars, restaurants tourist attractions and sporting activities have to close.  You can walk your dog but only for short distances, it must be on a lead and you must not be with a group of other people.  The police have full power to enforce this.

Read the full info here in English  https://www.janetanscombe.com/area/news

Businesses which are allowed to open include:-
Supermarkets
Restaurants which offer delivery service eg pizza, chinese
Banks
Insurance companies
Kioskos
Opticians
Doctor
Dentist
Orthopedic
Vet/pet shops
Garages/fuel
Technical equipment
Telecom
Dry Cleaners
Hairdressers (!!!!! not sure why this is classed as essential)
At the moment it unclear if ferreterias will be open
