trips, green certificate, visits to relatives and friends –

From today, Monday 26 April 2021, the new rules for moving between regions come into force, with the new colors. The movements in and out of the territories located in the orange or red zone (currently Sicily is orange) are allowed, as well as for proven work needs or for situations of necessity or for health reasons, as well as for the return to residence, domicile or home, even to all those with the “famous” Covid-19 green certifications. They are issued to those who have undergone the full course of vaccination, to those who have recovered from Covid-19 with the simultaneous cessation of isolation and to those who have carried out an antigenic swab (rapid or molecular), with negative results, in the 48 hours prior to the departure to other regions. The green certification is valid for 6 months from the date of completion of the vaccination cycle, 6 months from the date of healing and 48 hours from the swab. For the procedures for issuing the green certification, it is recommended to contact vaccination centers, hospitals or a general practitioner.
For those who are not in possession of these requirements and the trip is in any case necessary for work, health, necessity or return to residence, domicile, home, the obligation remains to present the self-certification.
Those leaving from Fontanarossa must show the green pass directly at the check-in desks or at the security checks. The self-certification must be shown at the police checks.
Also at the airport in Catania, the screening activity continues for arriving passengers who can perform the rapid swab at Terminal C. No swabs are carried out on departing passengers.
Even in the orange zone, the possibility of reaching only one private home, once a day and only within the municipal area of ​​residence, remains valid. In essence, it is not possible to reach other municipalities even if they are close. These movements are authorized for a maximum limit of 4 people and no more 2, excluding minor children or people with disabilities or non self-sufficient living together. There is always a curfew from 10pm to 5am. No changes for catering and bars.
