Galicia gives up Green Pass, last in Spain to do so

Region had still required it for cafes and restaurants

12 August, 16:39

    MADRID - The judiciary of Spain's Galicia region ruled that there cannot be any requirement of a 'Green Pass' attesting to COVID vaccination to enter cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs in certain areas.

    It was the last in the country in which the measure was still considered to be in force.

    Reports were from the Galicia regional court, which issued the ruling.

    With this decision, there is no obligation of Green Passes in any region of Spain after similar decisions were made in other regions that had also tried to apply the regulation, such as Andalusia and Cantabria.

    The regional court issued a statement saying that it had made the decision after procedural irregularities from the Galicia government, which, the court said, had not subjected the July 22 ordinance in which it introduced the Green Pass requirement for some high-risk zones to a judicial assessment.

    The court's approval was an indispensable requirement since the measure limited individual rights.
