People who have not received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccination will be subject to restrictions beginning today.
According to a notice issued by the Ministry of Economic Development on Wednesday, unvaccinated individuals would be denied access to some services beginning September 1, 2021.
Unvaccinated people are not permitted to:
- Enter the school grounds
- Obtain services from cafes and restaurants
- Attend workplaces in person
- Receive In-person services at salon
- Travel by public transportation
In addition, people who have not been vaccinated must also pay for their own PCR testing before being released from quarantine.
These restrictions are in place to encourage people to acquire Covid-19 vaccines. While the government established a goal of vaccinating 90% of the eligible population by the end of August 2021, just 66% of that target was met.
