I am coming over this weekend to finally see our newly purchased property - could someone maybe clarify the use of masks when not in an enclosed space i.e when out walking or on the beach?
I intend to carry one at all times but don't want to get into trouble by not fully understanding what is required or what is usual practice now you have had a few weeks of wearing them. 
In the UK it seems normal now to give people distance as you pass by as masks are not mandatory. 
Am i correct in thinking you don't need them in cars if all passengers are from the same household?

Thanks for this information, when I click on the picture I only get a very small unreadable image, do you have a bigger version or a link to its origin? I am considering visiting next week so I have been looking around on the web for a concise explanation of the official stance on mask wearing however I have not found much apart from media written advice which I am sceptical of.

*update* apologies, i saw the full version in the earlier post, will pay more attention in future, ignore this (mods please delete if you can, i dont see the option to)

You need a mask anywhere where you can not observe the social distances rule, plus inside any shop and in a car if the other passengers are not from the same household. 

So, on the beach, walking the street etc, no needed as long as you keep your distance.

Having just watched Amelia Bolger it seems once you leave a populated area you can remove your mask? Any clarification? For instance we like a walk round the golf course roads early in the morning and never seem to meet anyone?

The Canary Islands limit the Events to 10 people in the islands with the highest incidence and will ask the State for trackers

The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, announced tonight that his Government will prohibit public acts of more than 10 people in the Islands that exceed 100 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 inhabitants during the next two weeks and from its publication in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands, scheduled for this Saturday. The regional chief executive gave a press conference after another extraordinary Government Council focused on measures against the COVID-19 pandemic and after a coordination meeting with the security forces and representatives of Fecai and Fecam on the current status of the virus and public response. Torres expressed his concern about the evolution of the pandemic in the Archipelago,He stressed that the measures that his Government has decided today "are the toughest possible" and made it clear that they will be of little use if there are still people who violate them, urging the Canaries to denounce these breaches, while acknowledging the general behavior in the Archipelago.

Ángel Víctor Torres also announced that he will ask the Ministry of Defense for the support of a hundred soldiers specialized in tracking virus infections to reinforce monitoring in the Islands. In this sense, he highlighted the effort that is being made particularly in Gran Canaria, with the increase in trackers, which has gone from 85 to 158 from July to August.

Torres recalled that there have been five government councils in August, every week, "something unprecedented", due to the worsening of the situation. He remarked that the Executive had already advanced two weeks ago with some "tough and restrictive" decisions, such as not smoking or the closure of nightlife, which the State later applied. However, "and although there are fewer infections due to nightlife," he regretted that the data have continued to worsen and pointed out that Gran Canaria has 129 cases and Lanzarote, 99. In addition, he stressed that there has been a significant increase in outbreaks and the affected.

Given this, he justified today's "drastic" measures and insisted that "we have to enforce them, that they are taken as orders, so as not to return to the gloomy weeks of March and April." Torres also explained that it has been decided that, instead of at one in the morning, the restaurant businesses close in those two weeks at 00:00 hours. In addition, the Government recommends that social encounters be limited in the area of ​​"stable coexistence, reducing as much as possible those outside the family." Another measure approved today is the mandatory use of masks in every workplace.

The Executive has also decided to carry out a joint screening or test in the nuclei with more than 100 positives per 100,000 inhabitants, "the so-called hot zones." In Gran Canaria, in addition, the sample collection areas will be moved from 9 to 15. In addition, laboratories will work 24 hours a day to have the results "as soon as possible". Torres also announced that screening will continue in nursing homes.

Maximum penalties

Another decision, which has been shared with those responsible for the security forces and bodies, involves activating “all the troops to the maximum”, especially in the most affected places, so that the rules are met. In addition, the security body will meet every day to analyse the situation and compliance with the measures on the beaches, terraces and other public places. The Government emphasizes that it will apply the maximum sanctions and is working on a decree to expand the amounts.

The president announced that these measures will be analysed tomorrow by the legal services to polish them and that they can be applied and taken to the Official Gazette this Saturday. As he remarked, “we are on time, but we have had to make tough and drastic decisions. Compliance with these standards is key, first for health and then for the economy. Let us enforce the rules who do not. Most do, we were an example in confinement and we don't want to go back. We dictate the rules to be followed, forced by the circumstances and are the hardest that can be taken. But it is impossible to put a policeman next to each of the two million canaries. On the contrary, it is possible to have an exemplary and ethical behaviour as the majority of this town has. We want to bury that stage of our life:Neither the health workers nor the people who are working at the foot of the canyon or this town deserve it, ”he stressed.

As he clarified, “our health and our future are at risk. Quarantine is not optional for someone who has tested positive. This is not child's play. The pandemic will live with us until there is a vaccine, ”he said, while denouncing that there have been parties on boats, that the distance and the rest of the breaches are not respected. “They are acts that are paid for with hundreds of positives and with young people who are entering hospitals; lives and vulnerable people are being put at risk ”.

The security meeting in the afternoon was attended by, among others, the delegate of the central government in the Canary Islands, Anselmo Pestana; the regional vice president, Román Rodríguez; the government spokesman and counsellor for Security, Justice and the Presidency, Julio Pérez; the head of Health, Blas Trujillo; the president of Fecam, Mari Brito, the presidents of the councils of Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, and the mayor of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Augusto Hidalgo, as well as members of the different security forces on the Islands.

Agreement on the school year

The Governing Council and the security coordination meeting, both in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, were also marked by the morning meeting between the Ministries of Health, Education and Territorial Policy with the respective advisers of the first two departments to address the beginning of the school year, which closed with a unanimous consensus on the protocol.

In his appearance, Torres announced that there will be a new Conference of Presidents with Pedro Sánchez on September 4, focused on the beginning of the course, that on Monday there will be another appointment of the counsellor with the educational community and that a course is sought "as much normalized possible, although everything will depend on the evolution of the pandemic, "he said.
