Italy 28 March 2022: From 1 April, with the end of the state of emergency for the Covid-19 pandemic, the easing of measures to contain the virus begins. In decree-law 24, published in the past few hours, all the news is contained.
There will be no more contact quarantines. From April 1st, only those who have contracted the virus will have to remain isolated at home, while for those who have had contact with a positive, in the absence of symptoms, only self-monitoring is expected, and wear the Ffp2 indoors for the following ten days. There will no longer be a distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated, for which, instead, at the moment, there is a five-day quarantine and a negative swab.
You will no longer need the green pass to use public transport, to eat on the terrace of a bar or restaurant, or, if you are outdoors, to attend a show or to carry out sporting activities. No more green passes even by hairdressers and beauticians. Free access also to banks and post offices.
It remains the obligation to wear the Ffp2 masks both on local public transport and on long-distance vehicles (for the latter it will be necessary to have a basic green pass) and to attend indoor shows.
There remains the obligation of a reinforced green pass for drinks indoors or at the counter, to access indoor sports facilities, such as swimming pools and gyms, for theaters and cinemas (but only until 1 May) and to participate in parties or weddings indoors. The super green pass is also required (until December 31st) for visits to hospitals and Rsa.
At school, masks and spacing will remain, but the dad disappears. The classes will not go home for the infections, but from the fourth case, there will be the obligation to wear the Ffp2 masks (from 6 years upwards). The Covid-19 positive children with medical certification will be able to ask to connect with the remote class, if requested. The vaccination obligation for teachers remains until June 15, but from April 1, even the unvaccinated will be able to enter school: the basic green pass will suffice, so a tampon will be enough. No more suspensions for them, but the unvaccinated will not return to the blackboard for the time being. They will stay out of class and will be assigned other school support tasks.
The vaccination obligation remains until June 15 even for those over the 50s and December 31 for health and RSA personnel.
Smart working under a simplified regime in the private sector has been extended to 30 June: from 1 July individual agreements between workers and employers will be required.
