Salut warns that the agreement in the Interterritorial Council “does not affect” the measures approved by the Procicat because it can be “modulated” by each territory
New sign that the pandemic is going down. The Interterritorial Health Council has unanimously approved this Wednesday (with the abstention of the Basque Country) that the capacity for the Professional Soccer League, the ACB and other sporting events is up to 100% outdoors and the 80% indoors, for example, in basketball stadiums.
The agreement establishes that “the measures are common and minimum” for the entire country during the period between 1 October and October 31 and that in the last week of the month a new evaluation of the situation will be carried out. Although, as specified by the Ministry of Health, the territorial administrations “may add other measures” depending on the evolution of the pandemic.
AND Catalonia has specified, based on this, that the decision does not affect “to the measures approved within the Procicat because they are maximum capacity that each community can modulate according to the epidemiological situation of each territory. “And the maximum percentage approved by the Procicat precisely this Tuesday is 60% outdoors and 40% in pavilions.
In any case, the agreement of the Interterritorial Council indicates that those attending sporting events must be preferably paid people or local public and that it is advisable that training continue behind closed doors or within the limits of the maximum capacity allowed. And it emphasizes that the use of face mask.
No food sales
In general, the sale or consumption of food, beverages or tobacco will not be allowed in the stadiums and before the event is held, access details, time slots, health security measures and admission conditions will be communicated.
This has been the only point debated in the weekly meeting of the Interterritorial Health Council, which this Wednesday was held at eight in the morning, instead of in the afternoon, as has been customary throughout the pandemic. However, other issues related to covid will be addressed in the monographic meeting on Primary care which will take place this Thursday and Friday in Gran Canaria.
In fact, some autonomies such as Castilla La-Mancha plan to continue insisting that a booster dose be provided to all those over 65 years of age. Catalonia, for its part, has already announced that although the Committee on Vaccines is still assessing the effectiveness of this measure, “surely” in the coming weeks an agreement will be reached and immunized with the additional dose to the elderly who do not live in residences, starting with those over 90 years of age.
