The Minister for Health, Patricia Gómez, said today following a cabinet meeting, that at the moment, this requirement is in force until 24 January on the islands.

The government has requested that the COVID certificate be extended for access to hotels, pubs, discotheques, nightclubs, nightclubs, gambling and betting establishments, residences and clubs for the elderly.

It is also expected to be required for access to celebrations, congresses, seminars, tourist establishments with shared rooms, gyms and sports facilities, dance academies and cultural and sporting events in indoor venues on the islands.
