Covid passport for Mallorca's restaurants

Covid passport - depended if it was a bar or a restaurant.

04-12-2021Laura Becerra

The Balearic government has accepted that an error with terminology in the text of the Covid passport decree published in the Official Bulletin means that the passport doesn't apply to bars and cafeterias with indoor capacities of 50 or more.

Following the publication of the decree, there was confusion, as the text referred specifically to restaurant business establishments; the Spanish is "restauración", the Catalan "restauració". Employers associations' interpretations were that this excluded bars and cafeterias. Brought to the attention of the government, there was eventually an admission that these interpretations were right.

The error will no doubt be corrected.

Meanwhile, the first day of the Covid passport being in force would appear to have caused some logistical issues, such as queuing to wait for it to be checked.

Copied & pasted ❤ This is IMPORTANT👇

The vaccinated people are scared. They’re scared to get COVID. They’re scared someone they love might get it and possibly die from it. They were worried they might not get to travel again or see their international families.

They’re not ignorant or ‘sheeple’ (I loathe that term) - they feel like they’re doing the right thing for themselves and the people around them. This may not have been an easy choice. Unfortunately they might have felt obligated to do so. They might have been scared they may lose their job. They might have been scared to get the needle. While you may not agree with them, it’s important to understand WHY these people have made their choice. You may think they’re wrong, but I’m sure you’ve felt scared and afraid before. It feels terrible. We need to have compassion and empathy for people making a hard choice that’s different than yours.

The unvaccinated people are also scared. They’re not inconsiderate monsters who thought “I’m going to try to screw over the rest of the people and not get my vaccine.” They’re worried about long term side affects. They’re worried about their immune systems. They’re afraid of how much the government is stepping in on their personal choices, freedoms and rights. They’re scared they might end up with Bells Palsy, myocarditis, shingles, blood clots, a miscarriage, a heart attack, heart palpitations, profuse unending vomiting, an autoimmune disease activation or death. They’re worried they might never see their international families again. They’re not ignorant ‘antivaxxers’ or ‘conspiracy theorists’ It would be easier to get the shot. It would be nice to win a million dollars or get paid $100. But they’re too scared to do so. It isn’t easy to say no to the shot. While you may not agree with them, it’s important to understand WHY these people have made their choice. You may think they’re wrong, but I’m sure you’ve felt scared and afraid before. It feels terrible. We need to have compassion and empathy for people making a hard choice that’s different than yours.

This is NOT the time to turn on each other. It is never the time to do that.

Stop the divide.

Come together with compassion, empathy, understanding, patience and forgiveness.

Take a moment to listen without judgement.

Take time to understand where the others are coming from.

Everyone is doing their best.

Lashing out and placing blame will only make things worse.

Shaming is not the way to change someone’s mind.

Understanding why and having compassion is our only choice.

Choose kindness, always.

@Mark, I would hardly say your getting on with your life, constantly trying to put the unvaccinated down.

Well, I am not worried about any of Rich´s camps, complot theory like deliberations and other nonsense he spouts here......as I got vaccinated. So who cares! And since 87% (and it is going up rapidly, seeing the queue´s at Son Dureta vaccination centre), there is a small group of screamers like Rich, who deem all this is the end of the world. Well, good luck Rich! Meanwhile us sensible people will just get on with our lives.

We went out yesterday afternoon and had a nice meal and drinks in a restaurant of capacity under 50. It was a really nice day. Unvaxed Mallorca on Facebook are listing all the bars for people to know we're to go to avoid discrimination and a papers please day out.

Prediction: Bars will display large 'Less than fifty' signs outside. This 'pass' situation could work well for small bars as it will only take one unvaxxed person in a group to drag that group into a small bar which they otherwise may not have visited.

Last May I predicted 'covid camps' , before that comes seizure of wealth, cash, gold etc. This has already begun in Greece where the elderly are having their cash taken in the form of fines. Soon it will be assets such as gold and property. The world is separating it's population into citizens and non citizens. When have such government actions happened before? Soon in spain the unvaxxed will be incarcerated in their own (for the moment) homes, unable to pay the mortgage they will have their homes repossessed and be sent to other accommodation provided by the government ....the covid camps. 2yrs ago if I had said you'd need a government pass to enter a social event you'd have called me crazy.....well don't laugh at my covid camp prediction and for god sake don't have gold fillings.
