Following France, Italy is the second European country to require proof. The green pass can be downloaded on cellphones and is required indoors at gyms, swimming pools, museums, restaurants, theatres, and cinemas.
You may receive a “green pass” if you have:
- had at least one vaccine dose
- have recovered from coronavirus
- have tested negative within 48 hours
Starting September 1st, 2021, the green pass will be required for university students and teachers. Further, it will be mandatory for forms of transportation, including by ferry, train, and plane. The green pass is not mandatory for children under the age of 12 or for those dining outdoors.
Currently, over 60% of Italians are fully vaccinated and Italians seem to be supporting the green pass. According to the New York Times, “8 percent of Italians are strongly opposed to the vaccine”.
