Venues holding events, as well as discotheques that want to reach 100% capacity, will have to request it.
The High Court of Justice of the Region of Murcia (TSJ) has authorised this Friday the use of the covid passport in the field of hospitality, nightlife and celebrations, as requested by the regional government. The use of this passport will not be compulsory, but it will be necessary if venues want to increase their capacity to 100%.
Full occupancy will be allowed for celebrations and entertainment venues “in those municipalities that are in health alert level 1 Low or 2 Medium”, provided that the organisers require at the time of access to the premises “certification or documentation of having received the full course of vaccination, of having recently overcome the disease or of having taken a PDIA antigen test with negative results”.
“Without the requirement of these health documents it would not be feasible to make the conditions of activity of celebrations and nightlife more flexible, so the restriction of rights that the requirement of this documentation entails is considered proportional and reasonable with respect to the benefit it entails, especially when it will be voluntary for companies in the sector and also for the citizens who access these activities”, the court emphasises in the legal grounds of its resolution, highlighting the arguments of the autonomous community in its report.
The measures will come into force at 00:00 hours tomorrow and will remain in force until 23:59 hours on 12 November, “without prejudice to the possibility that they may be modified, made more flexible or rendered ineffective depending on the evolution of the regional epidemiological situation”.
