Government, green pass obligation on 2 levels. A dose for restaurants
The Coronavirus emergency in Italy continues unabated. The data on infections are constantly increasing due to the delta variant that is now spreading throughout the country. The vaccination campaign is worrying, which has undergone a sudden stop, especially as regards the reservations of the first doses, now almost exclusively the boosters are administered. The government works – reads the Corriere della Sera – to mediate on the obligation of green pass. The goal is to leave Italy in the white band at least until 15 August and therefore – in addition to the modification of the parameters for the classification of the risk areas – measures are being studied that can help slow down the run of the Delta variant.
It was decided to make the number of people hospitalized in the medical area and in intensive care “weigh” on the classification of risk areas. And therefore we will go to the yellow zone if the occupancy of the ordinary wards exceeds 10% of the available beds and that of the intensive care units exceeds 5%. The conference of the Regions has been convened for today, tomorrow there will be a meeting with the government, the Council of Ministers will therefore meet by Thursday in order to bring the decree into force on 26 July. And thus also extend the state of emergency, which expires on July 31, for at least three months.
In this new classification – continues the Courier – there will be a tendency to diversify the places where the risk of getting infected is highest, providing for a double level of obligation of the green pass. And therefore in this first phase of application of the decree, a single dose of vaccine (but also a negative swab, or the certificate of recovery in the previous six months) may be sufficient to go to indoor restaurants and all other places where the they already provide for distancing rules. A double dose, on the other hand, would be mandatory for crowded places, where there is a high risk of crowding even at the entrances and exits. The list should include stadiums, concerts, conferences, events, entertainment venues, gyms. And allow, always with the double dose of vaccine, to be able to dance in outdoor discos. On the other hand, there are no restrictions on open-air restaurants.
