CURreNT SITUATION

Update 8/10/2020 @ 5 p.m.

ITALIAN NATIONAL DECREE UPDATE:
The Italian Prime Minister issued a new decree on the evening of 7 August 2020, which will be in effect from 9 August 2020 to 7 September 2020.  The new decree essentially extended the safety measures that have been in effect to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The below summary includes the current national and regional rules for FVG (FVG-specific rules are indicated with an asterisk): 

FACE COVERINGS AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING:

  • The rule that individuals six (6) years old and older must wear face coverings in indoor spaces accessible to the public and outdoors when it is not possible to continuously guarantee one meter of physical distance between non-cohabitants is still in place.
  • Individuals six (6) years old and above must also still keep a face mask available when outside in case they cannot maintain the required physical distance of one meter with non-cohabitants.
  • You must continue to wear face coverings in public transportation and in private automobiles if you cannot maintain one meter of physical distance with non-cohabitants.
  • Masks may be disposable or washable and may be self-made. The masks should be made of multilayer materials providing an appropriate barrier, but they should also be comfortable and guarantee breathability. The shape of a mask should still ensure proper coverage from the chin all the way to above the nose.
  • *One meter of physical distance should be measured from mouth to mouth of the individuals concerned.

GATHERINGS:

  • Gatherings remain prohibited.

OTHER HEALTH MEASURES:

  • Those with a respiratory infection and a fever of 37.5℃/99.5℉ must remain at their residence and contact their healthcare provider.
  • It is still forbidden for persons accompanying patients to remain in the waiting rooms of the emergency and admission departments, unless otherwise specified by the healthcare personnel in charge.

ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS (e.g., cinemas, entertainment venues, sports):

  • *Spectators are allowed at outdoor and indoor sports events, but there must be an open seat between fixed seats; where there are no fixed seats (such as when spectators stand or sit on terraces, steps, bleachers), spectators must maintain at least one meter of physical distance between non-cohabitating persons or groups.

-NOTE:  Outside of FVG non-professional sporting events may not be open to spectators until 1 September 2020 and be limited to 200 spectators if indoors and 1,000 spectators if outdoors.

  • *Theaters and entertainment venues may also continue to utilize their full capacity following the same rules for seating in the bullet above for sporting events.
  • Parks, playgrounds, and public gardens remain open to minors and family members or members of the minors’ household (including those taking care of minors) to engage in play and recreational activities outdoors, but gatherings between non-cohabitants continue to be prohibited while at these public facilities.
  • Other indoor and outdoor facilities for recreational and educational activities (formal and informal) for minors remain open, including to persons needed to operate the facilities and care for the minors.
  • Individuals may continue to engage in general sports activities, which are carried out at gyms, swimming pools, public and private sports centers and clubs, or at other facilities where activities aimed at the well-being of the individual are carried out through physical exercise, but must wear a face covering over their nose or mouth or maintain a physical distance of one (1) meter from non-cohabitating individuals and ensure they do not engage in a gathering at any time.
  • Groups may continue to engage in sports (including contact sports) or motor activities, but a two (2) meter physical distance must be maintained by non-cohabitants at all times when not required by the sports activity itself (unless a companion is required for a minor or a person who is not self-sufficient). 

-For example, if two teams of three persons are playing soccer, one non-cohabitant may engage another to steal or block the ball, but then must move to a two meter distance once the play is complete.

-The two meter physical distance must be maintained during periods of rest or intermissions.

-Water or drink containers should never be shared.

LITURGICAL AND RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES: 

  • Places of worship remain open; however, each organization must take measures to avoid gatherings and ensure that a physical distance of one (1) meter can be maintained by non-cohabitating individuals and groups.
  • *There is generally no numerical limit on the number of people allowed for liturgical and religious celebrations which are held in closed spaces, but one meter of physical distance must be able to be maintained between non-cohabitating groups.

TRAVEL AND MOVEMENT: 

  •  There are no restrictions within Italy including for recreational and tourist travel. Self-certification may be required in regions outside of the Fruili-Venezia Giulia (FVG) region.Please check with individual regions official websites for any other requirements, including mandatory self-certifications.
  • 14-day restriction of movement (ROM) is required for those coming from abroad, except for citizens/residents of EU countries, the Schengen area, the United Kingdom, and Northern Ireland, Andorra, Monaco, Republic of San Marino, and Vatican City State do not require a 14-day ROM.
  • Entry into Italy is more limited for those who have stayed or transited through Armenia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bosnia Herzegovina, Brazil, Chile, Kuwait, North Macedonia, Moldova, Oman, Panama, Peru, Dominican Republic, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia, but may be permitted in certain cases of absolute urgency, health needs, study needs, and return to one's home or residence.
  • Regional presidents have authority to prescribe rules for local transport, ensuring they minimize overcrowding during peak travel hours.  The national minister of transportation has authority in conjunction with the health minister to regulate transport services, if needed, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including providing rules for interregional and international travel.
  • A private means of transport (including taxis) must be used to transit from the airport to the residence in which you will ROM if you are traveling from a country that requires a ROM under Italian law.
