Finally the reinforced Green Pass has really arrived. Is called Super Green Pass and will allow vaccinated people and those recovered from Covid-19 to continue to have trouble-free access to any type of activity. It will run from 6th December and will be valid until 15th January. The Minister for Public Administration Renato Brunetta defined it as a “prize“, And in general on its application the Draghi Government has never been so united: in fact, even the League has given its assent without problems, considering that the alternative would have been to face new lockdowns.
With regard to Transports, the changes will be different even considering that the appropriate controls will also have to be implemented. To travel on high-speed trains and airplanes it will be sufficient to have the “basic” green pass, that is the one obtained by making a molecular swab with a negative result (valid for 72 hours) or an antigenic swab with a negative result (valid for 48 hours). The decree introduces the same obligation for other means of transport. The list would therefore include: regional rail transport, therefore Intercity and commuter trains; local public transport, then buses, coaches and subways.
The government has also extended the vaccination obligation to law enforcement and teachers, and considering that the vaccine for the little ones could soon arrive, the percentage of the vaccinated population should rise. The Super Green Pass will be valid for 9 months from the last vaccine dose received or from recovery. The main novelty is that the prohibitions for No vax will also be triggered in the white area, and this is actually the biggest difference that can also be declined on transport. Those who are not vaccinated will not be able to access bars, indoor restaurants, gyms, cinemas, theaters, discos, shows and ceremonies.
The unions do not seem too convinced, according to what La Stampa reports: “The new rules approved by the Council of Ministers must be regulated because they are not immediately applicable to the mobility sector, so the unions are asking for clarity. «The government tell us how the checks will take place, with which personnel, since there are not enough controllers. And not everything can fall on the conductor or the driver because we are talking about highly crowded vehicles ”, underlines Maria Teresa De Benedictis, national secretary of FILT CGIL. “We believe that the check must be made when purchasing the travel ticket, precisely in order not to expose the staff to altercations and aggressions on board the vehicle.Says the trade unionist. This means that tobacconists and newsagents should check the travelers’ vaccination passport when they sell the bus ticket, while for the subway the electronic mechanism of the turnstiles could be updated to make it able to read the QR code of the Green Pass, in addition to the code. bar of the tiles. On regional trains, checking the green certification seems simpler, just adapt to what the conductor already does on high-speed trains where he is responsible for checking both the ticket and the anti-Covid pass. De Benedictis does not think so: «There is a high turnout on regional trains and a conductor cannot do everything alone. Aggressions are on the agenda, we must avoid other occasions of conflict ».“
