Italy will abolish the final remaining rules for wearing masks indoors, said Health Undersecretary Andrea Costa in a radio interview on Wednesday.
“I think we will abolish the most recent restrictive requirements, such as the usage of masks indoors,” Costa told RAI state radio. “The government’s purpose has always been to foster coexistence with the COVID-19 virus.”
From May 1st, you must wear a mask in Italy when outside. FFP2 masks have to be worn on local and public transportation in Italy until June 15th, according to current regulations.
Masks must also be worn at all public places and on airlines until June 15th.
In the midst of a dispute over whether or not to prolong the mask mandate on public transportation, Italian health minister Roberto Speranza recently told the Corriere della Sera that the administration would “definitely be able” to stop the mask requirement in movies and theatres beyond June 15.
