Italy COVID-19 Legislative measures - The PM Decree 11/06/2020
On 11 June Prime Minister Conte approved a new Decree setting the regulatory framework applying in the following month.
Unrestricted movement of people is now permitted to and from:
- EU Member States
- other Schengen area countries
- the UK, Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino, the Vatican City.
Until 30 June, movement of people to and from other countries is forbidden unless travellers crossing the Italian border state that they are entering the country for proven reasons of work, extreme urgency, and health reasons.
Inbound passengers coming from non-European countries, crossing the Italian border for the above-mentioned reasons, must still undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine, unless:
- they are only staying for 5 days max. for proven work reasons – in this case they are not required to undergo the quarantine
- they are only transiting across the Italian territory, for no more than 36 hours – same as above.
The following economic activities are allowed to stay open all across the country, provided that they comply with national safety protocols and with sector-specific guidelines adopted by the Conference of the Regions:
- Productive facilities
- Banking, financial and insurance companies
- Wholesale traders
- Construction sites
- Retail stores
- Hotels and other accommodation facilities.
A general recommendation is still in force to all professional firms to work remotely whenever possible.
More generally, all businesses across the country must comply with the safety protocol agreed between the Government, business associations, and trade unions on 24 April, on top of any other sector-specific protocol.
The following economic activities may instead be allowed to stay open (or may be forced to close down) by individual Regional administrations, basing on the contagion spread risk in their jurisdiction. Here as well, all businesses are required to comply with sector-specific guidelines adopted by the Conference of the Regions on top of national protocols:
- Businesses in the catering industry (bars, restaurants, pubs and others)
- Personal services businesses (including barber shops, hairdressers, spas, etc.)
