Owners of catering and entertainment establishments in Cyprus are outraged over Wednesday’s Cabinet decision that all unvaccinated individuals who are eligible for the Covid-19 jab to be shut out of these venues.
They have already set the message that strong measures against the state decree to come in effect as of December 15 are not ruled out, Philenews reports.
The decree provides that people aged 12 and above who have not received at least one shot of a Covid vaccine will be banned from hospitality venues, cinemas, theatres, and sports facilities, both indoor and outdoor.
A SafePass will also be mandatory for those between the ages of 14 and 64 starting Monday.
Among other things, head the Pancyprian Restaurants and Entertainments Owners Association (PASIKA) Fanos Leventis has accused the government of “using” in a canning way their industry to push ahead with its vaccination campaign.
And that they choose to ignore the fact that the burdened industry is already on the brink of bankruptcy.
