Sumary of Catalan court ratifies use of ‘Covid passports’ for bars, restaurants, gyms:
- Covid-19 vaccination certificates will be required to enter bars, restaurants, gyms, and to also visit elderly care home residents in Catalonia from Friday 26 November.
- The Catalan High Court ruled on Thursday to approve the use of the EU’s Digital Covid Certificate – also referred to as the ‘Covid passport’ – and the measure will be in force for at least two weeks, after which the authorities will review its effectiveness and decide whether to extend it or alter it in any way.
- This Covid passport can be accessed in Spain via each region’s healthcare system, and officially confirms whether the bearer has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, has recently recovered from the virus, or has recently tested negative for it.
- It remains to be seen if the measure will be extended to other establishments in the coming days after health authorities had also recommended introducing the use of Covid passes to enter cinemas and theatres.
- Up to now in Catalonia, ‘Covid passports’ demonstrating proof of vaccination, recovery from the virus, or a recent negative test have been required to enter nightclubs or attend events in hotels and restaurants with indoor dance floors.
