Corona in Italy

The current “COVID traffic situation”

The current Corona Situation – Update July 28, 2021

Dear Friends of Italy,

We would like to bring you the important news about coronavirus measures in Italy.
From August 6, 2021, access to certain locations will only be permitted for those who have the EU Digital Covid Certificate. (known as the “Green Pass” in Italy).

Green Pass – The EU’s digital Covid certificate

The Covid certificate can be obtained from:
* a complete vaccination against Sars-Cov-2
* Proof of recovery from Covid-19 (duration: 6 months)
* a negative test result (PCR or antigen test, not older than 48 hours)
Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the Green Pass.

The following areas may only be visited with a Green Pass:

* Restaurants and bars (only indoors and only in the case of table service)
* Theater events (both indoor and outdoor), sporting events
* Museums, cultural institutions, exhibitions
* Swimming pools, fitness studios, team sports, wellness areas (also within hotels and only inside)
* Folkloric festivals, fairs, conferences and meetings
* Spa areas, theme and amusement parks

Where is the Green Pass not required?

* In shops, pharmacies, supermarkets
* in bars and restaurants in the open air, where the distance between the tables is ensured.
* In outdoor pools and public transport (buses, subway, train)

Please make sure that you have the Covid certificate so that you can enjoy your stay in Italy without any problems.
If you present a negative Covid test, please note that this is only valid for 48 hours and must be repeated in the event of a longer stay on site.

Mouth and Nose Protection

Please note that mouth and nose protection is mandatory in all of Italy in public spaces outdoors if the minimum distance to other people cannot be maintained. In closed rooms it is compulsory to wear mouth and nose protection. A mask must therefore always be carried with you. Violations of the obligation to wear can be punished with high fines.
There are rules of 1-2 meters between people.
Temperature measurements are often taken before entering facilities (e.g. authorities, shops, theaters, means of transport, etc.). If the temperature is too high, access will be denied. For access to many facilities, hand disinfection with the disinfectant provided there is mandatory.

We also ask you to check the website of your Federal Foreign Office for requirements for entering Italy (Green Pass, COVID certificate or similar). By the way, don’t forget to register for entry to Italy using the Passenger Locator Form: https://app.euplf.eu/#/

Requirement for Traveling to Italy

Anyone entering Italy from European or Schengen countries should meet two requirements:
1) The EU’s digital Covid certificate or submission of a negative test: PCR test or rapid test not older than 48 hours from the time of entry into the national territory (certificate of negative test issued by the laboratory)
2) Filling out the “EU digital passenger localization form (EU dPLF)” online.

Travelers must register with the EU dPLF web application by providing a valid email address and password. Travelers will receive a confirmation email to the email address they have provided. In order to confirm and complete the registration, travelers must click on the link that will be sent to the email address provided.

Vaccination campaign

The vaccination campaign is proceeding rapidly in Italy and almost all regions will be in the white zone from June 21st. This means that there are only a few restrictions from June onwards, tourism should finally pick up speed again with the EU Green Pass (The EU’s digital Covid certificate).

Most part of Italy is in the white zone, only a few regions are left in the yellow zone. Hotels and restaurants are open. The night curfew has been lifted. Theater and sporting events are again allowed to play in front of an audience with a reduced number of visitors.
Only dance events and large celebrations with many guests are prohibited until further notice.

Vaccination status:
• 60% of the over 12 year’s population received the 1st vaccination
• 53% of the adults are fully vaccinated

Corona Traffic Light

Every week, the government decides on the traffic light color of the individual regions according to the current infection rate: white – yellow – orange – red
Depending on the color of the region, restaurants, bars, retail stores, museums, etc. may open.
Each regional government can again mark zones with a higher risk within its region. A single town in the yellow region zone can therefore be declared a “dark orange or red place”. Then everything is closed in this place and nobody leaves the place, except in justified cases like work, health and other justified cases. A pass (Autocertificazione) must be presented.
Since the zones can change quickly, it is very difficult to keep up-to-date information at short notice.

All regions are in the yellow zone and it is checked which regions are allowed to change into the white zone.
