The Minister of Health emphasized that the sponsors also have the right to prevent those who did not take the exam from participating in the event
The Minister of Health stated that the sponsor of the event is obliged to recommend testing and has the right to prevent people who have not participated in the testing from entering.
“There is a strong suggestion here. The publicity agency here is responsible for making everyone who participates in the event be tested, so when people participate in the event, they must be tested, and the publicity personnel must absolutely stop people if they have not been tested. , You can’t participate in the event,” Antonio Lacerda Sales told reporters.
In this sense, he added that they are also “a supervisory entity, and this is the joint responsibility of the promoters”, despite defending that each citizen is responsible for himself and others.
“Prosecutors must, that’s why it is strongly recommended that the word is clear. If you look at the resolution of the Council of Ministers, the third point says they must, and the Portuguese word is very clear. They must promote this test.”, emphasized ruler.
António Sales believes that “it is very important for people to conduct self-tests before the event” because “they are large gatherings of people. The standard clearly defines the capacity, 500 people indoors and 1,000 people outdoors”.
