Super green pass in white zone till the 15th of January. Mandatory green pass also on public transport. More stress on No vax and masks out doors even in white zones.
Green light from the Cdm to the decree for the Super Green pass, which will also be reinforced in the white zone from 6 December to 15 January. New measures on the No vax, with the obligation to show the Green pass on public transport. The obligation to wear an outdoor mask will start in the yellow area and no exceptions will be made for those vaccinated or recovered from Covid. In the white zone the Super Green Pass should only be operational during the Christmas holidays, while it will always be in affect for yellow and orange (and red).

NO CLOSURES – The closures of activities in the regions in the yellow or orange zone will no longer be triggered, but access will be limited to Super Green pass holders only, so those not vaccinated or cured from Covid will be limited in access to the bar, restaurant or in gym and will also have limitations in moving.
