The Health Protection Agency (HPA) has authorized stricter restrictions for people seeking public services who have not received a single dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The harsher limitations, which are slated to go into force on September 1st, are intended to encourage vaccinations.
According to the revised guidelines, unvaccinated people are not permitted to visit cafes or restaurants, nor are they permitted to utilize public transportation or ferry services. They will also be prevented from flying domestically.
Such people will also be excluded from gyms and salons, and all service providers will be required to guarantee that the guidelines are strictly implemented at their establishments.
In addition, the HPA said that taxi drivers, waiters, and personnel of gyms and salons would be required to get vaccinated to continue offering such services.
Furthermore, office workers would be required to get vaccinated after September 1st in order to have entry to their workplace.
Official records show that 327,579 people received their first dose, with 280,353 receiving their second dose.
