A new approach that is based on the person and not on the geographical area of origin. The EU states seem to have finally found an agreement to protect free movement on the continent.
Tomorrow the ministers for European affairs will approve the new Council recommendation which will come into force on 1 February and, as reported by Corriere.it, will relaunch the value of the Green pass, the European Digital Covid Certificate. In practice, the need to present a negative test or quarantine will no longer depend on the geographical origin of the traveler, but on the type of his Covid certificate, allowing free movement without tampons for those who are cured of the disease or vaccinated.
By linking the restrictions to the situation of the traveler, regardless of the state of arrival, the traffic light system of infections, which saw the European regions colored with different colors according to the epidemiological situation, thus jumps.
However, each Member State will be able to arrange additional measures based on the epidemiological situation. In Italy, the swab obligation to enter our territory will remain in force until the end of the month.
