At the entrance to indoor entertainment centers, Adapass check will continue, with antigen tests performed in the last 24 hours on unvaccinated people.

Places that fall under the definition of indoor area are listed as follows: Bars, clubs, casinos, cinemas/theaters, indoor areas of hotels, indoor children’s playgrounds, barber/hairdresser/beauty salons, SPA centers, tattoo parlors, nightclubs, restaurants/cafes, indoor sports/ entrance to gym activities.
