In a few hours the Council of Ministers at 4 pm will formalize the decisions on Green pass. Based on what filters from the control room at Palazzo Chigi, the obligation of a green certificate will also be extended to the constitutional bodies, including the Quirinale and the Constitutional Court, and to the elected offices of the Chamber and Senate. An important but almost due signal, given that the government has now decided to extend the Green pass to workers in private companies, after those in the public administration.
On this point, internal sources tell the executive, there would be a “substantial sharing“between the various forces of the majority and within the same control room. The Green pass will therefore become mandatory for everyone starting from October 15. Those who intend to continue to physically go to the workplace without the Green Pass must prepare for the worst: suspension without salary after 5 days of “unjustified absence” due to lack of the certificate. However, if the employee were to access the office or company by evading the controls, the sanction would become pecuniary and disciplinary.
Swabs knot: Matteo Salvini and the League for some time now they have been asking for free tampons at the expense of the state to meet families and those who do not want (or cannot) obtain the Green pass. Prime Minister Draghi is also against it because, as recalled by the epidemiologist Stefania Salmaso a Republic, the real goal is to push those who are against the Green pass to get vaccinated, and the free swabs would have had the opposite effect. According to rumors, however, a mediation will be reached “Tamponi a 8 euro for the under 18, a 15 euro for the others until the end of the year “, explain government sources, with generalized obligation for pharmacies to practice controlled prices until December 31st. Only those who cannot get the vaccine will be exempt from payment. On the other hand, the duration of the valid pads to obtain the Green pass has been confirmed: 48 hours. The hypothesis of lower the quarantine for those who have the two doses of vaccine.
