Government to decide Thursday to allow hockey fans to enter the arena / Article
The minister acknowledged that, in the opinion of the Department of Health, it should not be possible to allow unvaccinated people to watch live ice hockey, which would be epidemiologically dangerous. However, it will be necessary to assess whether there are legal threats linked to possible discrimination against such persons.
“We still believe that it would be dangerous for people who have been tested but not vaccinated to stay indoors for long periods of time, including watching hockey. As a result, virtually no indoor activity is currently permitted. for a large number of people. For those who have been vaccinated, however, it is necessary to assess both the technical possibilities and whether such a situation will lead to discrimination, injustice to residents of Latvia who have not yet been vaccinated and who have not yet had such an opportunity. I am not talking about people who do. do not want to be vaccinated, but those who want and we have not been able to provide a sufficient number of vaccines so that everyone can be vaccinated, âPavÄ¼uts said.
The government meeting will take place on Thursday. The health ministry will present its assessment and the government will jointly have to make the decision to play hockey in person, the health minister said.
