CNSU adopts exceptions regarding access of unvaccinated persons to public bodies and shopping centres. PSD slams Gov’t over COVID restrictions inconsistency

Romania’s National Committee for Emergency Situations (CNSU) adopted at a Monday meeting new exceptions regarding access of unvaccinated persons to public bodies and shopping centres.

Thus, CNSU Decision 94/2021 establishes that access to the premises of business operators trading non-food products is allowed only to persons who prove being vaccinated or recovered from disease in the last 180 days, except for access to pharmaceutical units located outside shopping centres and parks, and gas stations.

The same decision approved exemption from the measure prohibiting access to the premises of central and local public bodies, autonomous utilities and business operators running on public capital, applicable to persons who do not prove vaccination, recovering from disease in the last 180 days or testing negative by a rapid RT-PCR or antigen test as follows:

– participants in administrative procedures carried out for reasons of public order and safety;

– participants in judicial, disciplinary, misdemeanor or administrative-jurisdictional proceedings;

– persons in need of access to healthcare services and social benefits;

– persons travelling to vaccination centres for the administration of the vaccine.

At the same time, the following persons are also proposed to be exempted from the prohibition of access to shopping centres and parks applicable to persons who do not prove vaccination or recovering from disease in the last 180 days;

– persons travelling to community public services if they show negative RT-PCR or rapid antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2 virus infection and provide proof of travel for this purpose by presenting a supporting document in electrical or electronic format;

– persons travelling to vaccination centres to get vaccinated.

 

PSD slams Gov’t over Covid restrictions inconsistency

 

The opposition Social Democratic Party (PSD) slams the “arbitrary and contradictory way” the restrictions in Government Decision No. 1.090/2021 on the extension of the state of alert have been set in place and challenges the credibility of a government that maintains that schools must be closed due to the serious pandemic, but leaves gambling halls open, thus suggesting that the situation isn’t that serious.

“PSD condemns the arbitrary and contradictory way the restrictions of the Government Decision No. 1.090/2021 on the extension of the state of alert on Romania’s territory have been set in place. This cannot be a credible government that orders schools to close because the pandemic is serious, but at the same time keeps slot machine halls open, suggesting that the situation isn’t that serious after all. This disproportionate and inconsistent approach actually covers the government’s inability to take the necessary measures for preparing the in-person school year under safe conditions for both students and teachers,” PSD said in a release on Monday.

According to the cited source, the “forced vacation” imposed by the Education Ministry shows the government’s “catastrophic failure” in this vital field for the society.
