COVID-certification gives access to public activities only for vaccinated people

The government has approved new regulations on stopping the spread of coronavirus. From Monday, the 25th of October, access to organized activities for adults is available only for people who are fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19.

For unvaccinated, access to joined activities and events will be restricted since they face and present a very high risk of infection: if unvaccinated people contract the virus, they are in danger of suffering a more acute case and ending up in the hospital, and they are also more likely to spread the virus than those who have been immunized against it. Moreover, the pressure on hospitals is already at a critical level.

The same order also reinforces the obligation to wear masks. With the spread of coronavirus once again becoming extensive, the use of protective masks is strongly recommended even for those who are fully vaccinated against the virus, also for those who have contracted and recovered from the virus. Also, facemasks must be worn by children from the age of 12 when attending controlled events such as plays, cinema screenings, and concerts. 

Face masks can't be replaced with face coverings like scarves, collars, or similar.
