The move comes a week before the mega Salone del Mobile 2022 exhibition in Milan (07-12 June) – an event that attracted more than 370,000 attendees prior to the pandemic. Italy eased its mask mandate in May, however FFP2 masks are still required on public transport, including flights.
Germany, meanwhile, has temporarily eased its ‘3G rule’ (geimpft, genesen, getestet) after health minister, Karl Lauterbach, announced it would be suspended from 01 June until the end of August. The 3G rule requires travellers to present a valid vaccination, recovery, or test certificate.
Italy joins a growing list of EU and Schengen area countries that have scrapped entry rules. This includes Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland.
