Quebec bar owners are urging the government to reopen hosts who have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
The two associations representing bar owners wrote a letter to Premier Franோois LeCald in a letter dated Thursday stating that the reform of the public health order, which has been in place since October, would provide a much-needed solution to the severely affected sector.
They also suggested that allowing partially vaccinated individuals access to liquor stores would encourage Quebecs who are reluctant to get vaccinated to get a foothold.
Peter Serkokis, chairman of one of the groups that wrote to the Prime Minister’s Union des Tenanciers de Pars de Quebec, said bars can slowly grow their customers because Quebecs are eligible for the vaccine.
“I think it’s a great solution for everyone, we need to open bars and restaurants,” he said in an interview on Friday. “We have to start somehow; We can no longer be closed. ” ‘
Xeroxes, who owns several bars and restaurants in the Montreal area, said the idea was to show readers evidence of vaccination on the doorstep.
“We will comply with the additional requirements for public health,” he said. “We are ready to do anything to protect employees and our customers. ” ‘
Ts Bars, the owner of Corporation des Presses, and Cercoquis and Renat Paulin, presidents of Taverness to Quebec, said they had sent a letter to the Prime Minister in March.
A spokesman for the health department said in an email on Friday that the government would soon discuss how the vaccine could be used as evidence in the province.
On Thursday, Health Minister Christian Tube told reporters the government was watching the digitization of Quebec vaccine records.
He said it would allow public health professionals to study ethical questions about so-called vaccine passports and how they can be used in the province.
“With its global application, we will trust the recommendations of public health, which will be done by experts,” Tube said.
