New Year’s orange zone: the Super Green Pass has reduced the differences between the white and yellow zones but in orange there could be stricter rules on travel
Italy risks the passage in orange zone and the spectrum of a New Year’s like that of 2020 hovers over the whole country due to the Omicron variant. To confirm this in his speech to the program Half an hour more is Guido Rasi, scientific advisor to the extraordinary commissioner for the Covid emergency del general Figliuolo: “I’m afraid so, we are getting closer, because the occupancy of hospital places continues to increase – It is therefore essential to do the third doses immediately. The vaccines are there and the campaign is progressing well but it is a race against time”.
Italy, we read in the recular of Ministry of Health call ‘Strengthening of organizational measures for the management of the current epidemic phase‘, is “in an acute epidemic phase, characterized by a high transmission rate of the SarsCoV2 virus in most of the country”. We therefore recommend a “timely activation at regional level of all organizational measures to deal with a possible increase, even if sustained, in the demand for health care”. The premier Dragons established a summit on December 23 to decide which measures and rules to introduce for Christmas and New Year.
New Year’s orange zone: what can be done and rules
With the introduction of the Super Green Pass, which you can also get with a single dose of vaccine but lose in case of positive Covid (here the details), there is not much difference between white area And yellow. The most important is themandatory outdoor mask and perhaps the request for a swab to access events and discos.
The passages between the different areas are determined as follows:
- Yellow zone: incidence of cases over 50 per 100 thousand inhabitants, 15% of beds occupied by Covid patients in ordinary wards, 10% of places occupied in intensive care
- Orange zone: incidence of cases over 150 per 100 thousand inhabitants, 30% of beds occupied by Covid patients in ordinary wards, 20% of places occupied in intensive care
- Red zone: incidence of cases over 150 per 100 thousand inhabitants, 40% of beds occupied by Covid patients in ordinary wards, 30% of places occupied in intensive care
As for a possible New Years orange zone it is difficult to say which rules will be respected, it being understood that the curfew was definitively abolished, but hypotheses can be made on the basis of the Christmas decree of 2020:
- You can leave your home (a limit of 2 people at a time is possible to visit friends or relatives excluding children and the disabled) but it is forbidden to move into and out of the Municipality of residence except for locations with less than 5 thousand inhabitants within a radius of 30 Km. The capitals are however excluded even if included in the 30 Km
- Shops open until 9pm
- Catering activities suspended (bars, restaurants, ice cream parlors, pubs, pastry shops) but home delivery allowed up to 10 pm and take-away with prohibition to consume on site and nearby
New Year’s orange zone: the situation at the regional level
Friulia Venezia Giulia, autonomous province of Bolzano And Calabria have already passed in yellow zone and today they change color too Liguria, Veneto, autonomous province of Trento And Marche.
Other Regions will soon risk moving to a different area such as Campania. “In relation to the abnormal growth of infections recorded in the last three weeks and reported by the health authorities, with a particular increase relating to the young age groups, – reads the ordinance signed by the Governor, Vincenzo De Luca, – containment measures and prohibition of indoor parties have become indispensable – which continue irresponsibly – with particular reference to school parties, graduation parties, birthday parties and the like “.” It is also recalled that in Campania the use of masks even outdoors, – which is being introduced in other regions – has remained mandatory throughout the year, even in the summer months. Control is urged, even with sanctions – which for now have remained absolutely inadequate – by the police and municipal police “.
In Campania it is therefore allowed “the only performance of” lunches and / or dinners, in compliance with the protocols in force “and also” of other events exclusively in static form, with seated and pre-assigned seats and with the obligation to wear a mask for the entire duration of the event “. On the other hand,” parties and similar events in dance halls, discos and similar venues “are prohibited.
There Lombardy instead it could find itself in yellow zone from December 27 while for Christmas it seems there will still be the maximum freedom granted by white area. “We are still in a fairly under control situation, for now the numbers do not penalize us yet. – declared the president of the Lombardy Region, Attilio Fontana, on the occasion of the toast of the League in Milan with Matteo Salvini – We will send the numbers on Tuesday, it will all depend on the next two days, but I think there is a good chance of remaining blank for some time yet. “
They could pass in yellow zone after Christmas too Lazio and Emilia Romagna. “Probably towards the New Year we could go there. – said the regional councilor for health of Lazio, Alessio D’Amato – Attention must always be kept high, we have an advantage to defend and we must not reduce prevention measures “.
To risk the New Years orange zone they are above all Friuli Venezia Giulia And Trentino.
