Italy Extends COVID Restrictions to Curb Spread of Omicron

In an effort to reduce the spread of the Omicron variant within the country, Italy has tightened its COVID-19 restrictions. New rules took effect on 10JAN and will last until 31MAR. Italy now requires visitors to use its “super green pass,” which shows proof of full vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 infection, to gain access to hotels, restaurants, bars and all local and regional transport services (excluding taxis and international flights). Previously, people had been able to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test only to use these hospitality and transport services. The super green pass is also required for outdoor facilities such as restaurants, pools and wellness centres.
