Starting August 10, fully vaccinated people can dine at F&B establishments in groups of five, the Ministry of Health (MINSA) said in a press release on Friday (August 6).
Anyone wants to be you are considered to be fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the full regimen of Pfizer BioNTech / Comirnaty, Moderna or any vaccine included in the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use List (EUL).
The ministry added that food and drink establishments can only resume dinner services if they can ensure that customers are fully vaccinated.
Both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can dine at street vending centers and cafeterias, but in groups of up to two.
The current group size for social gatherings will also increase from two to five beginning August 10, and households will also be able to receive five different visitors per day.
However, those who are not fully vaccinated should stay in groups of no more than two “to reduce the likelihood of transmission and serious infection,” the Health Ministry said.
The Ministry also said that the restrictions will be eased in two steps starting on August 10 and August 19, if the Covid-19 situation remains stable.
In addition to allowing the dining hall for the vaccinated, restrictions will also be eased for this group of people for other higher risk activities, such as high intensity sports without masks, personal care services and larger events such as wedding ceremonies and worship services.
“Unvaccinated people with a valid negative pre-event test result or recovered people have a similarly lower risk and can also join groups of up to five,” the Health Ministry said.
Starting August 19, up to 50 percent of employees who work from home will be able to return to their workplaces. Before the tightening of workplace rules, half of employees were able to return to their workplaces as of May 8.
