The COVID passport will no longer be mandatory from March 1 in the Valencian Community

The Valencian Community continues to maintain some COVID restrictions while many others, including Catalonia, have already eliminated all measures against covid-19.

The obligation to present the COVID passport to access bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, cinemas, etc will cease. The passport measure was not really effective in reducing the number of infections but was “forcing” the unvaccinated to take the doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

The Generalitat Valenciana had initially decided to extend this measure for another month, until February 28, but now Puig has announced that “the covid passport will not be necessary from March 1st”. Therefore, although not officially, the President did announce yesterday that this certificate now has a couple of weeks to run.
