May 15. The Costa Rica government has issued several decrees (Executive Orders) or Decretos Ejecutivos in Spanish, two of which have sparked legal interest in the subject of vaccinations and the use of face masks in public places.
The first executive order is Decreto Ejecutivo No. 43543-S. This administrative law encourages government and private institutions NOT to apply workplace sanctions, such as job termination, against persons that do not have a complete set of Covid 19 vaccinations.
The government requests the National Committee on Vaccinations to guide it as to which government employees can be affected by sanctions of “work termination” if they do not comply with the rules that are currently in place.
The government also encourages, but it does not specify who, -one would surmise they are addressing the Committee-, to perform technical studies that show the effects that compulsory vaccination has on that group of the population that has indeed been vaccinated, including evidence from other countries.
