Italy to Require Covid Health Pass for Indoor Venues
A Covid-19 health pass will be needed from August 6th onwards to visit a number of Italian venues including bars and restaurants.
A health pass known to be a green pass in Italy will be mandatory to access swimming pools, gyms, concerts, sports events, and cultural venues including museums, cinemas, and theatres. However, the government stated that nights clubs will remain closed. The health pass will indicate that the holder has either got the first jab of vaccine, has recovered from the disease, or tested negative in the previous 48 hours.
The “health card is an instrument to allow Italians to continue their activities with the guarantee of avoiding being among contagious persons,” Prime Minister Mario Draghi stated Thursday evening following the cabinet meeting that approved the move. “The green pass is not an arbitrary thing,” he added, “it is a condition to keep economic activity open.”
