Italy Stricter on Unvaccinated, Eases Quarantine Rules
The Italian government has announced that it will tighten the corona measures from January 10. However, the stricter rules will mainly apply to people who have not been vaccinated. Italian media, therefore, speak of a “lockdown for the unvaccinated”.
For example, people who have not had an injection will not be allowed to go to a hotel, fair or festival in two weeks. They are also no longer allowed to use ski lifts and public transport. The new rules will apply for the time being until the end of the state of emergency, which will expire on March 31.
In Italy, quarantine rules are also being relaxed for people who have been vaccinated or recovered. In principle, they no longer need to self-isolate if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. However, they must wear an FFP2 mask for ten days when they leave their home.
The number of corona infections in Italy has increased sharply in recent days. More than 98,000 new infections were identified on Wednesday.
