In anticipation of the Council of Ministers under the shadow of the rapid increase in cases, mainly due to the C mutation of Covid19, culminating in yesterday's 827 cases according to information three are currently the measures will be announced by it:
At first it seems to return to the limit in the capacity of restaurants and entertainment venues, but also of stadiums where events take place – football matches will be an exception as only vaccinated or with safePass will enter the stadium. It seems that the measure will return to churches, theaters as well as to family events (weddings-baptisms).
In terms of interiors it will be proposed as instead of 250 which is the limit to increase to 350, provided that all individuals will be vaccinated. The same incentive will be given to outdoor owners where instead of the 350 people currently allowed, 500 people are allowed provided they are all vaccinated.
Finally, it will be mandatory to show SafePass indoors and outdoors for both locals and tourists. In fact, it seems that the control for possession / demonstration of SafePass will be carried out by the owners or managers of the businesses.
Note that from August 1, antigen tests will not be free and the maximum price (ceiling set) will be 20 euros. Many companies as we are informed ask their employees to be vaccinated as they are not willing to have personal financial costs if someone does not want to receive the vaccine.
