As of October 21, Bulgarians will be required to present a Covid-19 Green Certificate to visit catering establishments, cinemas, theaters, concert halls, galleries, gyms, shopping malls, shops with a total shopping area of 300 square meters, swimming halls, sports halls and clubs, this country’s caretaker Minister of Health announced. 

The Covid-19 Green Certificate certifies that its holder has completed the vaccination cycle, has recovered from Covid-19, or has a negative PCR test less than 72 hours old, or a negative antigen test less than 48 hours old. The Covid-19 Green Certificate becomes mandatory for people employed at hospitals and care homes. However, people will not be required to present a Covid-19 Green Certificate when travelling with the public transport.

Schools will switch over to rotational learning when the fourteen-day morbidity ranges between 500 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people and 700 new cases per 100,000 people. In-person learning will be allowed at the universities only if students possess a Covid-19 Green Certificate. Laboratories will lose their license if they are caught issuing fake certificates. Visits to hospitals will be also suspended as of October 21.
