A resort on the Spanish island of Tenerife is under lockdown because an Italian couple has tested positive for the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The Tourist Offices of Spain confirmed that two H10 Costa Adeje Palace guests -- an Italian man and his wife -- have tested positive for the virus. The spokesperson with the organization said that while the property is “not officially under quarantine,” the Canary Islands Health Service has mandated that “accesses in and out of the hotel are controlled.” 

Additionally, “a system of sanitary facilities has been activated in the establishment,” which the tourist office said includes medical, nursing and psychology staff.

A press conference addressing the situation will be held in Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Tuesday.

Barcelona-based H10 Hotels confirmed that “health and operational recommendations from the health authorities” have been implemented at the 467-room H10 Costa Adeje Palace.

“We are providing customers and hotel staff all the necessary care and attention so that, despite the inconveniences this situation may cause, they are taken care of in the best way possible,” added the company.

The situation in Tenerife comes as confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases in Italy hit more than 280.
