On February 1, the regulation that citizens need to show proof of vaccination (“Green Passports”) in order to access facilities in Georgia was withdrawn by the government.
“Due to the rapid spread of Omicron and the mildness of the virus, and also in accordance with world practice, the obligation for citizens to hold a ‘green passport’ has been lifted. However, all systems remain in place and those who need a green passport to travel abroad will still be able to use this mechanism,” said Giorgi Ghibradze, Chief of Operations at the Interagency Coordination Council
At the meeting on Tuesday, it was highlighted that despite the growing number of corona cases, the situation is fully manageable, the pressure on the hospital sector is not increasing significantly, and the vast majority of patients are being treated at home and their health is being monitored by family doctors, whose number has increased even more in recent days.
The council meeting stressed the importance of vaccination to prevent possible complications in case of infection with the virus.
