In Tuscany the situation is constantly monitored in a capillary way and specific protocols are applied in public places to ensure everyone's health. In Italy, the Regions are identified as a white, yellow, orange or red area, based on a series of parameters. Each area has specific rules for the containment of infections. Tuscany is currently classified as a yellow zone.
Please note that throughout Italy it is always mandatory to use the mask in indoor public places and that for some activities and services it is necessary to wear FFP2 type masks. Outdoors, however, the mask is not mandatory except for situations in which interpersonal distancing cannot be guaranteed or gatherings occur.
It is possible to carry out some activities only if in possession of the green pass or similar certification. In Italy there are two types of certifications required for those over 12 years of age: the basic green pass and the reinforced green pass (or super green pass).
The basic green pass certifies the successful anti-Sars-Cov-2 vaccination, the recovery from the Covid-19 infection or having tested negative for the rapid antigenic test in the last 48 hours or for the molecular test in the last 72 hours. The reinforced green pass certifies one of the following conditions: having had the COVID-19 vaccination or being cured of COVID-19 in the last six months.
From 1st February 2022 the duration of the vaccination green pass is reduced from 9 to 6 months from the completion of the vaccination cycle or from the administration of the booster dose.
Museums, cinemas, theaters and other places of culture are open and operate according to specific protocols. Restaurants, bars and pastry shops are also open to the public and continue their service following the relevant guidelines.
The reinforced green pass is required to access bars and restaurants (indoors and outdoors), cinemas and theaters, museums and exhibitions, hotels and accommodation facilities, wellness centers, spas, theme and amusement parks, cultural centers, social and recreational centers, recreation rooms, parties for civil or religious ceremonies, festivals and fairs, conference centers and ski lifts in ski areas.
The basic green pass is required to access hairdressing shops, beauty centers, public offices, postal and banking services and retail shops (except those used for the sale of essential and primary goods such as supermarkets, grocery stores and pharmacies).
Consult the table of activities allowed without green pass, with "basic" green pass and with "reinforced" green pass on the Government website.
Ballrooms, discos and similar venues are closed until 10 February 2022 and events, parties and concerts, which involve gatherings in open spaces, are prohibited.
Ports, airports, railway stations and highways are open and functioning. Check the status of your flights on your airline's website.
It is possible to enter Italy and Tuscany coming from abroad, except from those countries for which special measures and restrictions are still in force. Consult the provisions that apply for entry into Italy based on the country of origin on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the website of the Ministry of Health. Before entering Italy it is necessary to fill out the Passenger Locator Form (digital localization form) and in some cases it is required to communicate your arrival in Tuscany to the Prevention Department of the local health company through this form.
