The president of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Chamber of Commerce, Santiago Sesé, has asked the Government of the Canary Islands this Thursday to change the legislation so that people who do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 do not work in public areas like the toilet.
Tourist employers request the COVID certificate to access all public spaces in the Canary Islands
Santiago Sesé, in statements to the media, pointed out that there is “a big problem” with people who do not want to be vaccinated.
“It cannot be that a man who is not vaccinated is in contact with the rest of his colleagues and with the clients,” lamented Sesé, who has criticized that there are unvaccinated personnel in the health system, which, he has warned, is “a danger”.
Therefore, the Government has to be brave and change if necessary the legislation not to force vaccination but to transfer it to another environment until the pandemic ends, he added.
Likewise, it has asked the Government to carry out exhaustive controls in ports and airports in the islands to try to make the Canary Islands “a little oasis.”
He has also demanded the implementation of the COVID certificate to access interiors, such as restaurants, and thus give customers confidence.
“The life of the people comes first, and if the law has to be changed, let us find a way to do it,” he added about the courts’ rejection of the implementation of the COVID certificate.
The tourist associations of the archipelago also asked the Canary Islands Government this Wednesday to request the COVID certificate to access open spaces on the islands, including shopping, sports and commercial centers, and not only tourist venues, in order to avoid other types of restrictions such as capacity controls or time limits.
