ANDALUCIA will extend COVID passports to indoor access for hospitality and leisure businesses.

The regional Superior Court court(TSJA) approved the measure in Granada this Friday.

The passport or a negative COVID test will be a mandatory requirement until January 15.

The measure already applies to people visiting patients in hospitals or residents in care homes.

The TSJA earlier this week rejected the regional government application to widen the passport’s use after hospitality and leisure workers were included in their order.

That demand has been struck out leading the TSJA to rule that the application meets the requirements of ‘necessity, suitability and proportionality’.

It agreed with the government’s objective of using the passport to cut coronavirus infection rates by reducing indoor hospitality and leisure access to users with high transmission rates.

The court previously said that users had the choice to enter premises but the proposal was unfair to employees.

It did concede that the passport extension violated fundamental rights but to such a ‘low’ extent because the ‘threat to life’ had to be considered within the overall equation.

The TSJA ruling stated that ‘the Christmas holidays, given the multiplication of social interactions and travel, will increase the potential risk of contagion’.

  1. Let me see if I have this right. The vaccine hasn’t stopped the spread of the virus but a vaccine passport will…. Hmm… why do they keep pushing a useless vaccine? Why not just give everyone a vaccine passport? Yay! Problem solved.

  2. When will the public stand up against these politically motivated decisions that have no basis in science or statistics whatsoever but instead create a
    divided society based on lies and are destroying businesses and the lives of millions of people. Statistics don’t lie and they show us that the vaccines don’t work, that they are high risk (these are publicly available government statistics), especially children where the statistics show that the vaccine will kill more children than they will ‘save’. The statistics also show us that the vaccinated are considerably more likely to ‘catch’ Omicron, carry a higher viral load and therefore distribute it. The statistics also show us that there have been few or no deaths from Omicron -high cases and low deaths is great news. And let’s not even get into the statistics behind prolonged mask wearing.

    This is 100% about politics and money – the government is not looking out for YOU.

  3. Well spoken, TruthSeeker! The truth will eventually be victorious if enough people hear it. Oh, and that’s a nice part of the country you’re living in….
