The government of the best has decided not to decide. And to decide not to decide, he needed a Council of Ministers. It was decided that masks remain mandatory until 30 September on means of transport, in hospitals and in RSAs.
No definitive decision on airplanes since the EU has already eliminated the obligation for a month.

For the rest, no mask in cinemas, theaters, sports halls. Also confirmed that the eighth grade and high school exams will take place without protections.
Too bad that the eighth grade exams have already started and that the president of the National Association Antonio Giannelli he remembers that a revocation law is needed: “If you really wanted the exams to take place without masks, you had to remember them first and move first,” he told Sky Tg24.
In all this, several teachers also ask to wear the mask again, at least for exams, given that the virus is still circulating. “A new step towards normality,” said Undersecretary of Health Andrea Costa. Not even the time to communicate the news that Michele Frullo, driver of the ATAC and contact person of the Usb Trasporti Rome and Lazio union, in reference to the extension until September 30 for the mask on public transport, complains that the staff is completely abandoned: “For us it is essential the safety of staff and users to edge – explained Frullo speaking at Radio Cusano Campus -. If the Ministry of Health has decided to extend the obligation of the mask on public transport and has assessed the presence of a major risk, we could only agree. But the problem is that there is no control ”.
Meanwhile, in the evolving epidemiological scenario, an increase in infections is expected due to the sub-variants of Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 in Europe. “These variants will become dominant throughout the EU, probably with a consequent increase in Covid cases in the coming weeks – warns the European Center for Disease Control ECDC – but there is no evidence that they are associated with a greater severity of the infection. “.
The ECDC also recalls that “as in previous waves, an overall increase in cases can lead to an increase in ordinary hospitalizations, those in intensive care and deaths”. As regards the Green pass, the European Commission welcomed the provisional political agreement reached by the European Parliament and the Council on the one-year extension of the EU digital Covid certificate (green pass) following the Commission’s proposal.
The extension will allow you to continue using your certificate, which was initially scheduled to expire on June 30, to travel to the EU where required. It is no longer necessary for entry to provide evidence of vaccination, recovery from Covid-19 or negative test results.
Minister Hope positive at Covid
Meanwhile, the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, is in isolation after testing positive for Covid. Now try to close your eyes and imagine the moans we would have heard if another Prime Minister had been in place of Draghi.
