The Valencian Community has extended the requirement of a COVID-19 passport until January 31.
In the Valencian Community, a COVID-19 passport or a PCR test will also be required to access all bars (regardless of capacity), cinemas, circuses, party venues, and any place where you can drink and eat
The Valencian government decided after the meeting this Monday of the Interdepartmental table. Bars and cinemas are added to hotel and catering establishments with a capacity of more than fifty people, leisure and entertainment venues, spaces dedicated to recreational and gambling activities, hospitals, public and private residences, and concentrations of people of more than 500 people.
These measures will be in force only when the Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community gives the approval and will be launched the day after publication of the DOGV.
The President of the Valencian Community Ximo Puig has recognized that it is a more complex situation than anticipated, saying:
“We are on alert but not in a state of alarm; we must flee from scaremongering. What is happening is serious, but we are far from the worst moments of the pandemic.”
The head of the Consell has urged to reinforce the use of the mask, ventilation and avoid unnecessary contacts, despite the upcoming holidays. The president explained that another of the measures that the interdepartmental table has adopted is accelerating vaccination, both for children and those over 60 years of age and vaccinated with Jansen and AstraZeneca. In this sense, Puig has announced the opening of 42 stable vaccination points in the Valencian Community.
