The signature of the head of state, Sergio Mattarella, to the Green pass decree, affixed in the evening, opens the way to a rapid publication in the Official Gazette and therefore to the extension of the green certificate. And it also gives strength to the hopes of those who see the provision as the premise for a return to almost normalcy for the world of sport, of the show and of culture. The capacity of stadiums, arenas, theaters and cinemas it could increase to 75-80% between late September and early October. A turning point that has been expected for months has become a concrete scenario with the launch by the government of the Green pass obligation last Thursday for about 23 million workers since 15 October. Over the past five days, many prominent politicians have re-launched the appeals with which sports executives, actors, singers, producers and directors for weeks they had been trying to put the matter on the agenda.
“The government has made a clear commitment and the September 30th there will be an evaluation – explained the Undersecretary of Health, Andrea Costa a A sheep’s day -: I believe that there will be the conditions to proceed with an expansion of the capacity for theaters and cinemas. I believe there may be one intermediate stage on the increase that can predict a 75-80% and then look to the 100% target in the coming weeks ”. The colleague Massimo Garavaglia, Tourism owner, Sunday set the bar at 80%, explaining that the rules are “ready”, hoping “the decree will soon” and specifying that “the CTS has nothing to do with it”. Other ministers, such as that of Health Roberto Speranza and that of Culture Dario Franceschini, in recent days have instead argued that the decisions on the capacities would have been taken on the basis of an opinion of the Scientific Technical Committee.
There is still no call but the first significant data on the curve will be available next week contagion in school population two weeks after returning to class. An index which has been carefully observed since the beginning of the pandemic and which could become a crucial junction for decisions that cautiously review some restrictions such as the capacity for indoor shows. With the Green pass, even the managers of the hotels hope to start seeing a light at the end of the tunnel discos closed for a year and a half now. “Discos to which we will give an answer may also be included in the evaluation at the end of the month: it is important to create conditions to reopen them and you can also start – said Costa – with a capacity of 75% with the green pass”. And maybe even with masks, at least indoors: “This is another indication that the CTS will give us, science – added the Undersecretary for Health -. The vaccine does not exclude the possibility of contagion, so to date I believe that the theme of removing the masks indoors is a theme to be postponed “. For Daniela Sbrollini, senator and head of Culture and Sport of Italia Viva, “if this winter the discos are still closed, private parties and illegal raves will spread among young people. It will be impossible to control the adoption of the basic health rules for the prevention of Covid and it will inevitably be a disaster “.
Now we await the publication in the Official Journal of the definitive text of the decree on the extension of the Green pass, also to verify some filings announced as the probable adjustments for the workers of the safety and the possibility, for companies with less than 15 employees, of replace suspended workers – because they do not have the green certification – for a total of 20 days in two tranches of 10, until 31 December.
