After weeks of unreliable supplies and fluctuating prices, face masks were made available at the majority of Lanzarote’s farmacias (chemists shops) on a rationed basis.

The masks are of the surgical type, and the Las Palmas College of Pharmacists has recommended that the upper price limit for each mask is 95 cents. To obtain a mask, you’ll need to show your health card, and only one mask can be bought every three days. Both these measures are intended to stop hoarding and maintain stocks.
