New restrictions. Regulations do not allow hoteliers to check covid certificates
According to the expert, the principle that the limits apply only to unvaccinated people does not exist, as there are still no relevant regulations that would allow for legal checking of covid certificates.

We also called for urgent consistency of the provisions of the regulation with the provisions on the protection of personal data, in the context of checking covid passports. We did not expect the answer to come so quickly and with the opposite news, i.e. even greater restrictions for hoteliers, he said.
