The Covid technical committee has agreed, at its meeting today, to request authorisation from the Murcia High Court of Justice to use the Covid-19 certificate for both nightlife and celebrations, in order to be able to allow 100 per cent capacity indoors with the same conditions as those required until now. This is a possibility that venues can use to complete the total capacity, but if they do not do so, the current 75 per cent capacity limitation will remain in force.
This request has been repeatedly made to the Ministry of Health to be applied at national level, but no reply has been received.
At the press conference following the committee meeting, the Health Councillor, Juan José Pedreño, explained that the certificate “is a very effective and reliable tool that we can use to guarantee greater security and protection in other activities and services”.
On the other hand, the measures in force, which can be consulted on the murciasalud website, will remain in force for another week.
Pedreño reported that 88 percent of the population has already been immunised against the coronavirus, with 1,153,717 people with a full schedule, and insisted that those people who, for various reasons, have not yet been vaccinated, should do so, as “immunisation is a gesture of solidarity, safety and health protection”.
In this regard, he recalled that the vaccination points in the region are being reorganised. Today, vaccinations will begin from Monday to Friday, mornings and afternoons, at the Jardín del Salitre in Murcia, which replaces the mass vaccination point at the Enrique Roca Stadium (Nueva Condomina).
The mass vaccination points in Lorca and Cartagena will continue in October. In addition, the vaccination campaign continues in health centres, where the administration of flu vaccines will also begin, starting with people over 70 years of age, who will also be given the third dose of Covid-19.
According to the epidemiological figures for the whole week, the Region remains at Alert Level 1-Low. At the municipal level, Lorca, San Javier and Totana are at Alert Level 3-High.
As for the rest, 11 municipalities are at Alert Level 2-Medium (Abarán, Águilas, Los Alcázares, Alhama de Murcia, Archena, Cartagena, Pliego, Puerto Lumbreras, San Pedro del Pinatar, Torre Pacheco and La Unión), and the rest, 31 municipalities, at Level 1-Low.
