SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 25 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Minister of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, Blas Trujillo, announced this Thursday that the Executive will send on Monday to the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) the order of his department regulating the use of the ‘Covid certificate’ in establishments and spaces for public use.
In a press conference to give an account of the Governing Council agreements, he commented that there are no limits on activities or whether they are internal or external, and the measure will be in force until January 15 and in the case of those responsible that require the public to submit to voluntary control.
In that case, it will be possible to operate with the limitations of a lower level of alert than the one they currently have – in the case of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, for example, which are at level 2, they would do so at level 1 and the rest would remain subject to the restrictions of their activity–.
As the order – which contemplates proving a negative test, vaccination or having passed the disease – will be in force until January 15 given that a lot of activity and arrival of travelers is expected, the Government has also agreed to extend the limits on capacity and schedules, including transportation, until December 15, reassessed every 15 days.
Trujillo has also commented that as of December 1, when the controls on national passengers in ports and airports come into force, the Government will not pay the tests to returned residents as it did at Christmas last year.
Thus, in case of not proving vaccination, negative test or having passed the disease 180 days before, they must be isolated and present an antigen test or a PCR in 72 hours.
To facilitate the implementation of the ‘Covid certificate’, the Government of the Canary Islands will make available an application, already under development, to facilitate the reading and validation of the QR codes.
In this way, it will be available to any company, administration or citizen and will allow the authenticity of the certificate to be checked from a mobile phone (or tablet).
The app will be launched in the Web-APP format and in the Android and Apple stores.
