Italy updated COVID-19 rules locally! Italy gives up the mask and green pass!
As of May 1, Italy has updated its local COVID-19 rules. Italy is relinquishing the obligation to wear masks in most places, including hotels, supermarkets, bars, museums and more. The obligation to wear masks has, however, been extended to public transport, hospitals, nursing homes, concerts and indoor sporting events, etc.
At the same time, Italy also raised the requirement to present a COVID-19 health permit for entry into museums, pubs, hotels and other activities and services. The changes are expected to attract more travelers to the country this summer, while the country does not rule out the possibility of removing more restrictions before the start of the tourist season.
