Italy will lift restrictions on travelers from European countries, the so-called Schengen zone, and the United Kingdom and Israel from May 16, the country’s health ministry said on Friday.
The ministry added that the current restrictions on people traveling from Brazil are being maintained.
People entering Italy from now liberated countries must observe five days of isolation and pass a compulsory examination before arriving and at the end of the period of isolation.
The ministry said in a statement that a negative test for Govt-19, which was carried out before the trip, was still needed.
Vaccine selection at the beginning of the month
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced in early May that Italian footballers invited to the Euro Cup had received the first dose of the Covit-19 vaccine.
The FIGC has said that the highest authority in charge of the country’s health crisis “has given priority to vaccination of players who are part of the Italian football team’s delegation to the European Championships in June”.
Half of the 35 players prepared by coach Roberto Mancini to join the Sardinia squad from May 24 have been vaccinated in Milan, while the rest are in Rome. They received the vaccine, which was developed by Pfizer Labs in partnership with Bioendech. Members of the technical team will be vaccinated at another time.
