Extension of the entry ban for those coming from some “at risk” countries and clearer rules to avoid gatherings. In view of the new Dpcm (the Prime Minister’s decree) which must renew the measures now in force to contain the infection with coronaviruses that expire on 14 July, the government is studying some adjustments. Tuesday will be the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza to illustrate the measures in Parliament. A resolution of the Council of Ministers will instead be signed to postpone the state of emergency at the end of the year and legitimize the “restrictions on personal freedoms” envisaged, as requested by the head of state. Sergio Mattarella.
There remains the obligation to wear the mask in closed places when social distancing cannot be guaranteed, but not the gloves which – say the Regions – «can represent an additional risk with incorrect use». In public places must leave your personal details which will be kept for two weeks. Still needed sanitizing of places, the hand sanitizer dispensers, i termoscanner in offices and shopping malls.
The reopening of the discos was scheduled for next Tuesday, but the government is oriented towards maintaining the ban on dancing indoors at least until the end of the month. “If the regions decide to do it autonomously, they can eliminate the restrictions but they will have to take responsibility for them,” Speranza reiterated during the meetings of these days. A line shared by the head of the Regions Francesco Boccia, convinced that it is up to the governors to modulate restrictions and loosening following the trend of the epidemic curve.
The prohibition of assembly remains in force, now more than ever, as new outbreaks continue to arise across the country. And therefore also the fines. For this reason, checks continue in the places of nightlife, in all the neighborhoods of cities and holiday places where the number of people gather for aperitifs and dinners is high. But also on the beaches where, especially in the last few days, they have been reported establishments that do not respect the distance between umbrellas, deck chairs and sun loungers. For this reason it is not excluded that a new circular of the Interior Ministry is also issued.
Festivals and fairs
The debate between Health, other ministries and the Scientific and Technical Committee on the need for health is still ongoing tighten controls on festivals, fairs and public events. Hope pushes to stop large gatherings unless the Regions are giving the green light. And for this we await the opinion of scientists who will arrive tomorrow.
The ban on entry to those coming from 13 countries will also be extended, also using triangulated flights: Armenia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Oman, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Moldova, Brazil, Chile, Panama, Peru and Dominican Republic. Italians, who live or have passed through one of these states, can return but must quarantine themselves. There remains the obligation to remain in isolation for 14 days even for those arriving from United States.
