The text, 10 articles, enters into force the day after its publication in the Official Gazette, therefore by 7 August. “With this decree – said Health Minister Roberto Speranza – we are taking a further step forward and doing so in three areas that we believe are decisive for the country: school, which is essential factor and the University. At the university, the pass is available not only for staff but also for students. The third area concerns i transport , to make them safer “.
What changes with the new law decree, the guide:
School and university: the obligation is triggered
The main novelty concerns the world of school. As stated in the draft of the decree all school and university staff, “in order to guarantee public health and maintain adequate safety conditions in the provision of the essential education service”, must have and exhibit the Green pass. According to what emerges from the decree approved by the council of ministers it contains penalties for teachers who will not undergo the vaccination obligation. “Failure to comply with the provisions is considered unjustified absence and, starting from the fifth day of absence, the employment relationship is suspended and no remuneration or other remuneration or emolument, however named, is due”. “For teachers who do not want to vaccinate for various reasons, there is an invitation to do the swab, if they do not even swab, failure to comply with the rule counts as unjustified absence and, starting from the fifth day, the employment relationship is suspended “. This was stated by the Minister of Education, Patrizio Bianchi, at a press conference after the Cdm.
For the students are not required to have a green pass, however, the government intends to monitor the progress of the infections in more systematically and for this reason it has included in the green pass decree a school population screening plan (The Extraordinary Commissioner for the implementation and coordination of the measures necessary for the containment and contrast of the COVID-19 emergency prepares and implements a school population screening plan “) . The certification obligation will instead be envisaged for university students. As noted iThe pass is issued after the first dose of vaccine – 15 days after administration – or at the conclusion of the vaccination cycle and therefore after the second dose, (valid for 9 months), with the certificate of recovery from Covid (valid for 6 months), with the negative result of a swab performed in the previous 48 hours.
Dad only in red zone or outbreak
The government’s goal is to secure the reopening in attendance from September for the institutes of every order and degree. School in the presence always, therefore, with the exception of red areas or outbreaks, governors or mayors will decide for distance learning. “The scholastic and didactic activities of the kindergarten, of the primary school and of the secondary school of first and second degree are carried out in the presence”, reads the text. “The Presidents of the regions and autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano and the Mayors, may derogate, for specific areas of the territory or for individual institutes, exclusively in the red or orange zone and in circumstances of exceptional and extraordinary necessity due to the onset of outbreaks or the extremely high risk of spreading the SARS-CoV-2 virus or its variants in the school population “. In any case, the measures must be “justifiably adopted after consultation with the competent health authorities and in compliance with the principles of adequacy and proportionality, in particular with reference to their scope of application”.
Transport: pass from 1 September
“The provision approved by the CDM introduces the green pass for means of transport. Not for everyone, but for long distance ones“announced at the end of the meeting of the Council of Ministers, the Minister of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility, Enrico Giovannini. In particular, he added, the green pass” will be mandatory for air, ship and ferry flights for interregional transport – with the exception of those between Messina and Reggio Calabria which are in fact local public transport – on trains intercity, intercity night and high speed passengers on buses used to transport people continuously and periodically on a route that connects more than two regions “. Giovannini made it official that the obligation will start “from 1 September and will last until 31 December, which is now the fixed term of the state of emergency”.
“Local public transport is not the subject of this provision” explained the Minister of Infrastructures and Sustainable Mobility regarding the obligation of the green pass. a management of local public transport much more suited to needs “. From the CTS, he argued, “a very important indication has come: that the filling rate of local public transport fixed at 80% in the white zone will remain so also in the yellow zone. This is an important point, which allows Regions, Provinces and cities to better plan their work “. Furthermore, Giovannini added, “on the basis of the data that we asked Istat to collect and that will be published in a few days, we asked the Italians what they plan to do in September, when they return to school, university and work. It emerges that there is a significant share of people who think that smart working will continue and that this will therefore reduce the overall burden on public transport. Upon recovery, the demand for local public transport could be 20% less than in the period before Covid. To all this, the minister concluded, are added the resources to support the plans of local public administrations.
There is no specific rule in the provision but the CDM has confirmed what has already been foreseen: customers who want to access restaurants and bars indoors within the structures they will not have to use the green pass. For the wellness centers of the hotels, however, the pass will be used as established by the July decree.
For those who have had contact with people positive al Covid but he has completed the vaccination cycle, the quarantine period goes down 10 to 7 days (at the end of which he will have to make a tampon). It remains instead of 10 days for unvaccinated subjects.
Cost of tampons
The test to ascertain whether or not Covid-19 is positive will cost 8 euros for children aged 12 to 18, while it will rise to 15 euros for those over 18. Speranza reported that an agreement has been signed between the supervisory commissioner of youth for the coronavirus emergency, General Figliuolo, and the representatives of Italian pharmacists. The agreement will cover the period up to 30 September, “then the government will reserve its evaluations”.
