After almost a year in which Resolution 666 of 2020 generally governed all biosecurity protocols against Covid-19 in Colombia, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection issued a new administrative act with the guidelines in force for pandemic control.
In this regard, the Minister of Health and Social Protection, Fernando Ruiz Gómez, stated that “as scientific evidence has advanced in the management of the COVID-19, there has been a need for changes to the protocols, for this reason resolution 223 of 2021 was issued”.
The resolution was issued on 25 February, and it has new parameters for action to maintain biosecurity.
The ones that will keep up are the use of masks, social distance, hand washing and the importance of ventilated environments are emphasized, whenever possible, doors and windows should be kept open for natural air exchange.
Like the provision of alcohol and disinfectant gel for use in the hands and surfaces that are highly exposed to contact by different people.
However, changes occur in the elimination of compulsory “temperature measure and listing those entering business establishments” the Minister of Health assured. Before casinos and commercial establishments had to not only take notes and contact details of who entered to the establishment but also had to ensure that none entered with higher temperatures than 36,7.
The use of disinfectant carpets and wheels or shoes for reducing the transmission of the virus is not recommended anymore for cleaning and disinfection.
In this way, new changes are expected to be made to the mandatory protocols for casinos, which have one of the stricter protocols in all industries. This will allow these establishments to be respected in the face of the responsibilities that both economics and biosecurity should have taken.

Why changing the Online Casino system in Colombia is a bad idea for Coljuegos
During some meetings, the regulatory body has attended to the queries of the operating companies, but the associations view the lack of preparation with serious concern and that is why Cornazar has presented a right of petition where he exposes some points to consider before the date of entry. in force of said project.
It is of great significance to establish a test stage, which can be considered as a pilot for the transmission transition from F18 to X18. In view of the fact that the new configuration for the transmission of the file results in a change in the usual shipping hours from 24 hours to 12 hours, this raise concerns due to the establishments' operating hours, coupled with the fact that the entity does not have 24/7 support that accompanies providers in their transmission difficulties and resolves last-minute problems. It is important to highlight that interconnection providers and even internet system providers do not usually have personnel available 24 hours a day and this increases the risk of non-compliance due to elements beyond the control of the employer, leaving him again exposed to sanctions and a change to the fixed rate that is usually more onerous.
Another concern about the resolution is that it does not have a tangible improvement in the treatment that must be given to the erroneous data that may be generated for different reasons in the transmission, we believe that we have enough historical information for the entity to generate an automatic audit process or even new significant events, which allow in the future to reduce the requirements of the entity and therefore the alerts before the insurance companies of the contracts At the time of loading the information, specifically when the F18 is uploaded and received; file approval, you should be notified.
The entity's platform must be able to alert the SCLM operator and provider of said news, including via API, and allow the receipt of new missing information or, why not, receive that data that was audited and reloaded correctly.
It is therefore in the hands of Coljuegos to listen to the industry and not impose by force and with many shortcomings a project that could ruin its recent certification in ISO 9001 processes.
