New ‘traffic light’ Covid response plan
The Covid pass will feature in a new set of Covid recommendations coming into force on Saturday
 

After weeks of pressure from the public and the Epidemic Commission, the Prime Minister has made a U-turn on his insistence on not discriminating between vaccinated and non-vaccinated people by introducing the Covid pass.

Covid passes are issued to people who have been fully vaccinated, have a negative test result no older than 72 hours or can prove immunity through previous infection.

With the current infection rates, a maximum of 100 people can gather at events; however, up to 150 people can gather for events that demand Covid passes.
