Italy Drops Some Covid Restrictions
On Sunday, 1 May, Italy eased some COVID-19 restrictions which reflects that life is gradually going back to pre-pandemic.
Italy lifted its “Green Pass” over the weekend, which means that visitors are no longer required to show proof of vaccination to visit places like restaurants, bars, museums, cinemas, gyms, and other venues.
However, the green pass is still required to access hospitals and nursing homes.
Some indoor mask mandates in Italy also ended, including inside supermarkets, workplaces, and stores. Masks are still required on public transport, in cinemas, and in all health care facilities and nursing homes.
