Italy tightens the screw for the unvaccinated – Coronavirus

Faced with the worrying rise in the number of new cases of contamination, the Italian government has decided to tighten the screws again. The goal is to avoid having to reconfigure the whole country within one month of the holiday season to save the economic recovery.

A “super health pass” for the vaccinated

Much of the new measures adopted by the government during an extraordinary council of ministers held this Wednesday afternoon, concern unvaccinated people now in the crosshairs of the executive and the scientific community.

The essential novelty concerns the introduction of a “super health pass” valid for nine months and reserved for vaccinated or people cured of the coronavirus and who have developed antibodies. This document will allow them to go to restaurants, bars, sports halls, stadiums, cinemas and theaters and to participate in parties and public ceremonies. In short, to have a social life.

Entry into force on December 6

On the other hand, all this will be prohibited for non-vaccinated and people who have not developed antibodies, who will no longer even be able to stay in a hotel. However, they will be able to continue to work in a company provided they carry out an antigenic or molecular test to obtain a health pass valid for 48 hours.

These measures will come into effect from December 6 to January 15. But they could be extended depending on the evolution of the epidemiological curve and also taking into account the fact that the state of health emergency has been extended until March 2022.

Return from confinement, compulsory vaccination …

Other important decisions were also adopted. Starting with the reintroduction of containment in areas particularly affected by the fourth wave.

The health pass is also becoming mandatory in public transport as well as vaccination for teachers, law enforcement and caregivers who will also have to perform the third booster dose.

The governors of the twenty Italian regions have asked the government to reintroduce the wearing of compulsory masks in the open air during the end-of-year celebrations.
