Stenbock House, 9 September 2021 – the Government updated the COVID regulation by adding an exception for those individuals who are permanently contraindicated for vaccination. Based on a physician’s decision, those individuals will have access to free testing to obtain the COVID certificate.

This group of exceptions includes the individuals who are allergic to some of the components of the COVID vaccine, as well as some individuals with special needs.

The regulation will also clarify the mask-wearing requirement applicable to the people employed in the commercial and service sectors. If the risk of the spread of coronavirus in the working environment of the employee has been alleviated in another manner based on the risk analyses carried out by the employer, for example by installing glass panels in front of cash registers, etc., and the respective employee is vaccinated, they are not required to wear a mask.

The Government Communication Unit will publish the order and the explanatory memorandum on the website.
