August 6th is Green Pass day. In fact, on that date the obligation of a Green pass will be triggered to access a series of non-essential services and activities, but which deeply affect our tourism sector also if the obligation of the green pass to travel on trains, airplanes and long-distance buses has not been introduced in the new provision. The matter was postponed to a later time and in the presence of new data.
The certificate will be used for drinks at the table indoors in restaurants and bars, where it will not be necessary for the service at the counter. It will also be used for shows open to the public, sporting events and competitions; museums, places of culture and exhibitions; swimming pools, swimming centers, gyms, team sports, wellness centers, even inside accommodation facilities, only closed; indoor cultural, social and recreational centers; festivals and fairs, conferences and congresses; spas, theme and amusement parks; gaming rooms, betting rooms, bingo halls and casinos, public competitions. Educational centers for children, summer centers and related catering activities are excluded from the Green Pass.
The Green Pass is mandatory for cinemas and theaters, but the number of spectators admitted to attend is increasing. In the yellow zone you will enter with Green Pass, mask and spacing, but spectators will be able to go outdoors from the current 1000 to a maximum of 2500 and indoors from 500 to 1000. While in the white zone, where capacity limits are now set, an outdoor roof of 5000 people and an indoor roof of 2500 people is fixed.
For sporting events and competitions in the white zone, the permitted capacity cannot exceed 50% of the maximum authorized outdoors and 25% indoors. In the yellow zone, the permitted capacity cannot exceed 25% and, in any case, the maximum number of spectators cannot exceed 2,500 for outdoor systems and 1,000 for indoor systems.
