After six weeks of total lockdown, children under 12 are to be allowed out of their homes from April 27 after the Spanish Government announced the first tentative steps towards lifting the national State of Alarm.

The Alarm period itself is likely to be extended until at least May 10 but with a gradual relaxation of the rules starting with walks for childen under 12 (and their parents). 

The Spanish Governments has also stated that the easing of quarantine rules should be governed by local conditions. For residents of Gran Canaria, which has one of the lowest Coronavirus infection rates in Spain, this is good news.

The island is likely to be in the first group of places to ease the rules. However, there is still no official timetable for the end of lockdown and no news on when adults and kids over 12 will be allowed out to exercise.
