Rome, 3 May 2021 – But how can we move to go on vacation? Meanwhile, keeping in mind two simple recommendations: trips should be planned more carefully than usual. Always remembering that each destination has its own rules and that the rules can change, following the trend of the epidemic.
Region colors: the new map. Scenarios for next week
The Railways remind you that reservations are required for high-speed, Frecce and Intercity trains – medium and long distance. Telematics is recommended because the QR code avoids direct contact. You have to wear a mask and sanitize your hands (a rule that always applies). A national increase of 12 races is already expected from today. On the other hand, you do not need to book on regional. Before leaving, it is therefore a good idea to check availability on the Trenitalia app. That with the summer timetable, effective from 13 June, provides for upgrades on the main tourist routes. No control for movement between yellow areas. If our destination is orange or red, we need self-certification or green certifications (proof of having been vaccinated, cured or negative for the swab). And you need the test to get on the ‘Covid free’ Frecciarossa. It can also be done before departure. Italo recommends limiting travel on board and makes it known that you can travel safely with your pet.
Covid and travel: EU proposes new rules. Fewer restrictions and tests for children
Covid Italia: the bulletin of May 2
Paola Galantino, head of Anav’s legal department, clarifies: “Reservations are required for long-distance lines, both national and international. There is an obligation to wear the surgical mask and indeed to change it every four hours if the journey is longer. On boarding, the temperature is measured “. According to the protocol, “the passenger must sign a self-declaration where he renounces the trip if symptoms of Covid arise”. So if I get sick on the street “the bus stops, the person is isolated and the local national authority is called”. What if I start from a yellow region towards a red or orange one? Green certification is needed. There is no maximum number for groups. The rules of capacity apply. “The bus can be filled up to 50% but there are exceptions. For example, if 2 or 3 passengers declare that they usually live together, they can travel less than one meter away”.
The first distinction to be made, they explain to Assarmatori, is between the ‘motorways of the sea’ and short-range services. On long-haul routes there is the obligation of a swab to be done in the previous 48 hours (the test is also necessary for national journeys between orange regions) and self-certification. On boarding the temperature is measured, it is forbidden to board if it is higher than 37.5. No test required, however, for local maritime public transport services. Here, unlike airplanes, the owner cannot exceed 50% of capacity. What if I go abroad? Of course, the rules of the country of destination must also be taken into account. Wherever the mask should be worn. Again: if we choose Sicily or Sardinia as a destination, we must first register on the regional apps. Solo travelers can no longer use a berth in a shared cabin but must book a single. For ferry services there is generally no obligation to book. Finally, the basic rule applies to cars, a maximum of two passengers for non-cohabitants. In that case, at the time of boarding, only the driver can remain in the car.
Digital check-in recommended, mask required (Lufthansa, for example, does not accept fabric ones, the type with valve or visors). About destinations: Entry requirements vary from country to country and in some cases it is necessary to have a negative test. Obligation of self-certification or green certification for orange or red areas.
