In consideration of the changed epidemiological picture the use of the mask is strongly recommended for the access of the voters to the polling stations only for the exercise of the vote. A circular from the Interior Ministry provides for this following the signing of an agreement between the ministers Luciana Lamorgese and Roberto Speranza. Previously, the use of a mask was mandatory.

At this point, the mask remains mandatory only for students engaged in taking the maturity exams starting from 22 June and for those of the eighth grade who must wear the Ffp2 mask.

The Viminale website informs that “the head of the department for internal and territorial affairs of the interior ministry Claudio Sgaraglia has issued a new circular informing the prefects of the signing by the ministers of health, Roberto Speranza, and of the interior, Luciana Lamorgese, of the addendum to the health and safety protocol of 11 May 2022 for the conduct of electoral and referendum consultations for the year 2022. The addendum, in consideration of the changed epidemiological framework with respect to the date of adoption of the protocol itself, provides for the use strongly recommended of the surgical mask for the access of voters to the polling stations, for the sole exercise of the right to vote “

This was sanctioned by the Lazio TAR, deeming the order of the Ministry of Health legitimate and rejected the appeal proposed by Codacons.
If it is true that exams never finish, it is equally true for the ways that, at least in the school field, are different almost every year, primarily due to the pandemic that has forced the world of education to follow its trends. Lessons will end during this week and exams will start for middle school until June 30th. But with a novelty: the written tests are back, in presence. 565,630 female students and students will be examined, of which 560,933 internal and 4,697 external.
The exam will be very similar to what was taken before the covid, but you will have to wear a mask to support them even if the sentence of the Lazio TAR on its use during the tests is awaited. The writings are back, two of the three, (Italian and mathematics) even if this year the writing of languages ​​will not take place.
During the oral examination, the commission will also ascertain the skills relating to the English language, the second community language and the teaching of civic education. The theme includes three tracks, the narrative or descriptive text, the argumentative one or the synthesis and understanding of the text.
“Today we close a difficult year in serenity – said the Minister of Education Patrizio Bianchi today – We did well to get back in attendance, it was very important and I saw a lot of enthusiasm “, inviting us not to emphasize the question of the mask in the final exams, in view of the next ruling of the Lazio TAR.” In September – he recalled – we decided to open the school face to face with a pact between us: to guarantee maximum safety for the neighbor at the desk and the mask is a symbol of this pact “.
Finally, Bianchi expressed satisfaction with the experience of the almost thirty thousand Ukrainian students welcomed in Italian schools.
At the same time, face-to-face baccalaureate exams are approaching for over half a million high school students. The commissions are chaired by an external President and made up of internal commissioners. This year the commissions will be 13,703, for a total of 27,319 classes involved. The exams will start on June 22 at 8.30, with the first written test of Italian, prepared on a national basis.
The second written test will take place on 23 Junedifferent for each course, which will concern a discipline among those characterizing the course of study.
This year the test will be prepared by the individual institutes, which will thus be able to take into account what is actually done by the children during the school year, also in consideration of the pandemic emergency. To date, therefore, 539,678 exams have been enrolled, of which 522,873 are internal and 16,805 external. The breakdown of the 522,873 internal candidates is: 92,828 from professional institutes; 167,718 from technical institutes and 262,327 from high schools.
