TRAVELERS heading to Italy should ensure they are following the latest rules surrounding COVID-19 control there. Quoted from Travel Pluse, Italy implemented new restrictions for people who want to use public transportation, eat in cafes, stay in hotels to go to the gym.
Not only proof of a negative COVID-19 tests, people who want to access public facilities must show proof of vaccination or proof of recovery from a recent infection.
This new rule was created to encourage people who have not been vaccinated to do so immediately. This new rule also requires people to wear FFP2 masks, the same as N95 and KN95, and this comes into effect from January 10, 2022.
Violators will be subject to penalties ranging from US$113 to US$1,800. Quoted from the NY Post, Italy has recorded more than 100,000 new infections every day. [antaranews]
