Only people who present a valid European vaccination certificate or a negative diagnostic test (antigen test or PCR) will be able to access the interior in nightlife venues from 5 August in Andalusia. This is the main decision taken by the Regional Committee for High Impact on Public Health, the Committee of Experts that advises the Junta de Andalucía, in a meeting held on Monday afternoon in which the president of the Board, Juan Manuel Moreno.
Andalusia plans to achieve group immunity in 10 days by exceeding 70% vaccination
The EU Covid Digital Certificate, in force since July 1 throughout the national territory, includes the vaccination schedule, the recovery certificate or a negative PDIA (Active Infection Diagnostic Test) in the last 72 hours. In the case of Andalusia, it can be downloaded through ClicSalud +, the Salud Andalucía app or at the health centers themselves.
The Andalusian president himself was in favor last week of requiring the certificate to access certain establishments, thus following in the wake of other countries such as France or Italy, or Galicia in Spain. From his point of view, it is an element with a double aspect: on the one hand, “deterrent” to control the pandemic and, on the other, “motivator” for those people who, despite the call of the authorities, are not vaccinated. However, such a measure continues to raise many legal doubts.
Measures to control the transmission of infections in nursing homes have also been put on the table. In this sense, it has been agreed to carry out weekly diagnostic tests in those social and health workers who are not vaccinated against Covid and, in the centers where at least one confirmed case is registered, the use of the mask will be mandatory in users, since it is currently mandatory for workers.
Irruption of the Delta variant
The Committee of Experts has highlighted that “the upward trend of the pandemic in recent weeks places Andalusia at a medium risk level although with certain signs of stabilization”, as highlighted at the end of the meeting by the Minister of Health and Families , Jesús Aguirre. Given this situation, the meeting also proposed the extension of the measures in force since July 22, which were related to the modification of capacity and curfew.
The counselor has also pointed out that “the incidence in the young population continues to be very high due to the penetration of the Delta variant”, being three times the Andalusian average in the 20 to 29 age bracket. “However, although this incidence has a lower impact thanks to the high vaccination coverage of the community, there is a slight rise in the indicators of healthcare pressure,” he added.
For his part, and with regard to nursing homes, the counselor has pointed out that “although the cases confirmed in recent weeks have a minimal impact at the healthcare level, it is vitally important to strengthen this environment.”
