Italy reopened nightclubs

Italy reopened nightclubs and eased Covid outdoor mask rules last month as it begins to gradually ease Covid-19 restrictions nationwide. After a six-week closure, Italy’s nightclubs and dance venues were opened on Feb. 11. Nightclubs have been closed for most of the past two years in Italy and were shut down again on Dec. 30 as the government tightened health measures again amid a surge in cases fueled by the more infectious Omicron variant. Italian media reported that industry bosses and regional authorities had pushed for the reopening of the hard-hit sector to coincide with Valentine’s Day. As with most leisure venues in Italy, entry will be restricted to those who can show a ‘reinforced’ or ‘super’ green pass proving vaccination against or recovery from Covid-19. Capacity will also be limited to a maximum of 50 percent for indoor venues and 75 percent outdoors. Masks must be worn in all indoor public places in Italy, including in nightclubs except for when on the dancefloor, according to Italian media reports.

In Italia le discoteche riaprono dopo sei settimane chiuse, giacché le restrizioni per le mascherine all’aperto e in generale gradualmente allentano. Le discoteche hanno chiuso il 30 dicembre 2021 quando i numeri dei casi del virus sono aumentati. Le notizie italiane hanno riportato che i proprietari delle discoteche volevano il permesso per riaprire prima del giorno di San Valentino. Come in altri posti, l’ingresso è limitato a quelli con il Green Pass. Le discoteche non devono avere più di 50% capacità per i locali al coperto e 75% capacità per i locali all’aperto. Il decreto per le mascherine ancora è in vigore nei posti pubblici come nelle discoteche; secondo il decreto le mascherine possono essere tolte solo quando si balla.
