Italy: Travelers coming from Britain under quarantine!

Travelers to the United Kingdom in Italy will have to go through the quarantine box once again! “Today I signed a new ordinance that allows entry with Green Certificates from countries in the European Union and the United States, Canada and Japan”, announced Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza on Facebook. Green certificate is a health certificate which certifies the negativity of vaccination, cure or anti-COVID test, announced the minister. Mr Speranza also said travelers from the United Kingdom, a country where the more contagious Delta variant is widespread, will have to follow a five-day quarantine and undergo an anti-Covid test.

He also extended the ban on entry into the national territory for travelers from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Italy is trying to revive the tourism sector this summer with 20% more tourists, which represents about 14% of GDP and has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to several government officials, Italy is planning to end the obligation to wear masks outside during the first half of July.
