From June 3, Italy welcomes regional travel, and Italy will get freedom of travel between regions. There will be no more quarantine even for those who come from abroad. This decision came after days of negotiations between politicians and governors from several regions who opposed the decision for fear of a new wave of contagion.
This concession was released by the President of the Conte Council after mediation by the Minister for Regional and Autonomous Affairs, Francesco Boccia, who wanted to convince opponents to allow them to track anyone who came in the region and keep their data for 2 weeks. Therefore, it is possible to register entries and voluntarily carry out serological tests, in this case by asking hoteliers to submit tests to their customers.
There is no new DPCM (ministerial decree) Conte – freedom of movement was predicted in the 18 May decree – but strong requests are made for individual citizens’ sense of responsibility because we are far from zero risk on the coronavirus front. Residents and tourists must remember the correct behavior that must be taken with respect to social distance, the prohibition of gathering, and the use of masks where it is not possible to keep a distance of at least one meter from others.
Regions will have the possibility, in the event of a substantial increase in cases, to build a new “red zone” and sign a restriction order to limit further travel. Minister Boccia has given the green light to the southern regions that have a limited number of infections – such as Sicily and Sardinia – and asked to be able to carry out checks upon arrival.
Puglia has determined that the local police will conduct an inspection. Request for a health passport as proof of negativity from COVID-19 those who arrived in Sardinia, as requested by Sardinian President Christian Solinas, were refused. The request is considered non-constitutional.
Traveling by plane and boat
Checks are also available for those traveling by plane and boat. starting from when it goes up with temperature measurements and general tracking. Passengers will be asked to fill out forms with information (travel, previous contacts, etc.) Which will be at the discretion of the regional governor. The questionnaire can also be extended to their family members. If someone makes direct contact with an infected person, he must be quarantined. However, it is not possible to impose a serological test, which remains voluntary even if there are people who think about the possibility of including it in a vacation package.
A ban on Italy by several EU member states
Greece is reopening its borders with tourists coming from 29 countries, but Italy is not on their list along with France, Spain and Britain. Austria, Croatia and Switzerland have also announced similar guidelines.
This is different from the agreement established at the European Union Foreign Ministers’ Conference on May 18. While Italy has announced the reopening of borders for all EU citizens starting June 3, it is the opinion of many that a “bilateral corridor” was created between EU countries that excludes Italy, punishing the entire tourism sector. Switzerland, which also has a number of COVID-19 cases, is not far from the Italian scenario. When compared to the population, he has decided to reopen its borders with Austria, France and Germany, but not Italy. Berlin, in turn, will allow Germans to go on vacation to Greece, but not Italy.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. In Maio, plans to meet immediately with the responsible authorities of the EU countries.
Two celebrations – in sequence
On June 2, Italy celebrated Republic Day in a calm tone considering that there were no military parades. On June 1, President Sergio Mattarella participated in a concert from the Quirinale park in memory of the victims of the corona virus. On June 2, he will take part in the crown deposit ceremony at Altare della Patria before going to Codogno, the location where the first case of the Italian COVID-19 was found, to meet with local authorities at the town hall.
Meanwhile, the Municipality of Bergamo will hold a memorial service for victims of the provincial corona virus on June 28.
The idea is to do “Requiem Mass by Gaetano Donizzetti.” The location will be in front of the monumental burial at sunset and will be dedicated to many families who have not been able to give their loved ones a final farewell. The President of the Republic was also invited to the ceremony.
