ESTABLISHMENTS in the Valencian Community could be fined up to thirty-thousand euros for breaking COVID passport rules, sources from the Consell have leaked.
According to Levante-EMV, sanctions for individuals and hotel, restaurant, leisure and entertainment establishments that fail to comply with the new COVID passport rules – which comes into effect from midnight on Friday, December 3 – could range from 60 to 30,000 euros.
Fines for two types of infringements – minor and serious – could be issued when the new measures start, with penalties ranging from 60 to 600 euros in the first case, and up to 30,000 euros in the second, according to sources from the Generalitat.
Here are the guidelines for the two types of infringements, Levante-EMV allege will be rolled out:
The COVID passport will be mandatory from midnight on Friday, December 3 for bars and restaurants with a capacity of more than 50 people. It will also be used in leisure and entertainment venues as well as spaces for recreational and gambling activities, with catering services, again with a capacity of more than 50 people.
Music festivals and concerts are also affected by the announcement.
The measure is set to be in place for 30 days and the order will be published in the Official Gazette of the Valencian Community (DOGV) on Friday, December 3.
