Italy To Relax Covid-19 Mask Restrictions

Travelers visiting Italy who arrive after April 30 will be subjected to fewer pandemic-related mask-wearing restrictions than they were before.

According to ABC News, a fresh declaration made by Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza on Thursday, March 17 marked the end of numerous pandemic precautions in the workplace and schools for citizens as well.

It was announced on March 1 that Italy will relax entrance requirements for overseas passengers, allowing individuals who have been vaccinated to enter without having to undergo any testing and unvaccinated travelers to enter if they can produce documentation of a recent negative test.

As of April 30, the mask requirement at cinemas, nightclubs, pools, gyms, restaurants, and workplaces will be less stringent than it is presently. Additional capacity restrictions on facilities such as music halls and stadiums will be eliminated as well.

For those above the age of twelve, Italy has reported a 90 percent completely vaccinated population, which has led to a decrease in the number of positive cases in recent months. However, the number of cases has been increasing this week, perhaps as a result of the probable BA.2 Omicron variant. According to Our World in Data, more than 61,000 people tested positive on only one day, the greatest number of positive tests since February 15th.
