The Italian coalition government under Prime Minister Mario Draghi has approved a new decree restricting the activities of unvaccinated people and creating what has been called a “Super Green Pass”.
Italy’s current vaccine passport system, known as the Green Pass, is eligible for those who have taken a Wuhan coronavirus vaccine, have recovered from the Chinese virus, or have tested negative for Covid-19 within a certain timeframe.
But the new “Super Green Pass” will only be granted to those who are considered fully vaccinated and those recovered from the virus, a report from the Italian news agency ANSA stated, with the country’s council of ministers approving the degree on Wednesday.
Those with the Super Green Pass will be allowed to engage in various activities, such as indoor dining, sports, and other activities, while unvaccinated people would be barred, even in regions that are deemed low-risk, according to the country’s colour-code system.
If a region goes into the most severe colour code — red — then all people, regardless of vaccination status, will have restrictions imposed. That means that all non-essential shops will be closed and other non-essential services will be halted, much like they were before the introduction of the vaccine passport system...
Vaccine mandates will also be introduced for teachers, school staff, health service administration workers, police, and member of the Italian armed forces.
