spanish regions considering wider use of covid passports amid infection surge

Sumary of Spanish regions considering wider use of Covid passports amid infection surge:

  • Amid concerns about the current rise of Covid-19 infections in Spain, some of the regional governments are asking courts to authorise the introduction of virus passports in order to help control the pandemic’s spread.
  • The governments of the Basque Country, Valencia, Navarra and Catalonia say they are ready to be the first regions of Spain to introduce Covid-19 passports for people to enter nightclubs, bars, restaurants and some public events.
  • A Covid-19 passport could show that a person has been fully vaccinated against the virus, whether they have had the virus in the last six months, or whether they have tested negative for Coronavirus via a PCR or antigen test in the past 72 or 48 hours respectively.
  • In Galicia, a Covid pass is already required in order to enter nightclub venues, but the region is also considering asking the court to authorise its use in more situations.
  • In Catalonia, a Covid certificate demonstrating proof of vaccination, having had the virus, or a recent negative test, is also currently required to enter nightclubs or to attend events in hotels and restaurants with indoor dance floors – but the Catalan authorities have also been considering extending the measure.
  • If approved, the measure will apply to people aged 12 and over who want to enter nightlife establishments featuring music or dancing, or even restaurants with more than 50 customers.
  • The regional government in Navarra is also considering whether to request court authorisation to introduce a Covid passport and this week it is holding meetings with sectors that would be affected by the measure.
