  • A so-called “Digital Health Pass” showing vaccination status and Covid-19 test results is being launched through the Public Health Ministry on its MorProm application. Domestic airlines have reportedly started using the pass when screening passengers. The ministry plans to roll out its “Covid Free Settings” measure on October 1, requiring customers entering “high risk” establishments in “dark red” zones to present the health pass, showing proof that they have either been vaccinated, tested negative for Covid-19, or have recently recovered from Covid-19.
