WHAT ELSE?

From August 6th the rules to move around Italy have changed: the Digital Covid-19 Certificate (in Italy called Green Pass) has arrived and new criteria for the colors of the Regions have been established.

These are the changes introduced by the last Council of Ministers

 

The EUROPEAN GREEN PASS

From August 6th, the Digital Covid-19 Certificate/Green Pass (for recovery from Covid-19 or one or two vaccinations) becomes the key in Italy for daily and working life, even to participate in events.
Those who do not have it will have to show a negative molecular or antigen test carried out in the previous 48 hours.

Editor’s note:
– the Green Pass for the first dose is valid until the date of the second shot
– the Green Pass after the two doses is valid for 9 months from the second dose
– the Green Pass after recovery from Covid-19 is valid for 6 months
– the molecular or antigenic text is valid for 48 hours

The Green Pass or negative test must be shown to access:
restaurants and other commercial activities to be served at indoor tables
Bars are also included, to be served at indoor tables, but not at the counter…
shows open to the public, competitions and sports events, with rules to be observed according to the number of participants (see below) for which reservations will almost always be necessary
museums, exhibitions, cultural, social and recreational centers
food events, concerts, festivals, conferences, fairs, and other aggregative meetings
amusement parks, theme parks, spas
swimming pools, gyms, wellness centers, even within hotels
trains (except local trains in the same region)
ships
Discos remain closed.

The owners of the businesses where the Green Pass or the negative test applies, have the duty to check that only the people in possession of it access the premises.
In the event of a violation, both the owner and the customer could face fines ranging from 400 to 1,000 euros If the violation is repeated, the business risks could be shut from 1 to 10 days.

 

THE SHOWS

In white and yellow area, the shows open to the public also in outdoor spaces, are carried out exclusively with pre-assigned seats and keeping the interpersonal distance of at least one meter both for the spectators (excluding families) and for the staff. Access is allowed only to those who show the Green Pass or negative test done within 48 hours before the event.
So: REMEMBER TO BOOK the tickets or to reserve a place also in the free events because number of participants is limited

In the white area: 50% of the maximum outdoor capacity is allowed to enter, which is reduced to 25% indoors. In the case of rooms with large capacities, the maximum number of spectators is 5,000 people outdoors and 2,500 indoors.

In the yellow area, the permitted capacity remains at 50% and the maximum number of spectators is in any case 2,500 people outdoors and 1,000 for indoor shows.

No events in the Orange and Red area.

On September 13th, 2021, all regions are in the White Area
except SICILY that is in the Yellow Area
