    As of Wednesday, December 1st, the period of increase in capacity begins for establishments that voluntarily opt for the verification of the complete vaccination scheme through the QR code.

    In this way, the authorities promote the dynamization of the economy in one of the most important periods for trade, at the same time that they seek to reduce the risk of virus outbreaks and new variants.
