Green pass, countdown, possible revision in 2022 with Covid data trend


Evaluation in December, with the expiry of the state of emergency. UnDpcm is evaluated with general indications. 'We could move on to its partial application,' says the undersecretary. For the third dose 'no obligation, trust the citizens' GREEN PASS AT WORK, CASA CAMBIA FROM OCTOBER 15 [ -work-what-changes-from-15-October-_18cd5a3e-26fc-4a3c-86f0-a67e139c54ca.html] (ANSA)

Just under 350 thousand new vaccinated with the first dose in the last week and about 8 million non-immunized, of which many workers.

A few days after October 15, the date on which the compulsory Green pass for public and private employees will come into force, the 'race' of the undecided for the green certificate is currently not moving fast.

In view of that date, however, Prime Minister Mario Draghi should sign general indications, in the form of a


, on the methods of checks for the holders of the pass, both within the public administration and for companies. And it is not excluded that an app - of the same type as the one used for school staff - may also be made available for other sectors of work. The indications - as will happen for the Public Administration - could include daily checks and preferably on access to the company, on a sample basis (not less than 20% and with a rotation criterion) or on a carpet, with or without the aid of systems automatic. The Government, however, remains firm on what has already been established:

the validity times of the green passport to those who perform the swabs do not change and remain 48 hours with rapid test and 72 with molecular.

Therefore no 'derogation' or modification of the rules at the last minute and therefore the non-vaccinated (exempt with certificate excluded) will have to adapt. The nodes, especially the representatives of small businesses explain, are still many. Many difficulties could arise in construction sites or contractors, since those without a pass could block the progress of a certain chain of work.

Just as the question of foreign workers - especially from the East - vaccinated with Sputnik, a serum not recognized by the EMA, remains open.

Possible news, explains Undersecretary Andrea Costa, could only arrive in 2022

. "It will be possible to review and possibly reduce the current application of the green pass with the start of the new year if the data of the Covid-19 epidemic continue to show an improvement trend, but a more precise assessment will be made in December concurrently with the expiry of the state of emergency that we hope will end ".

This was stated to ANSA by Undersecretary for Health

Andrea Costa. 

A revision of the green pass "could mean

keeping the current green card for some circumstances and not for others.

While we are now facing a full application of the green pass,

it could be a partial application"

. Therefore, "if the trend of the Covid-19 epidemic continues to be positive, it is reasonable to think that with

the new year there may be a review of the measures and also of the green pass

, which can therefore be reduced in its application ". To this end, he concluded, the evaluation of the epidemic trend will be crucial, which" will have to be made at the end of the year.

Therefore, we still have two months ahead of us that will prove decisive ".

The green pass "obviously remains valid for 12 months, starting from the date of administration of the third dose for those who will do it or of the second dose for those who do not fall within the categories indicated.

for the recall. Compared to the expiry of the green pass for most of the population, we still have a reasonable time to evaluate what the picture will be, hoping that in a few months the green pass may no longer be needed because we have come out of the pandemic ". to ANSA the Undersecretary of Health Andrea Costa. "The expiry of the green passes, which for the most part will take place in 2022, is a problem for which - he clarified - we have enough time ahead that will allow us to address it and eventually find solutions. In other words, we are not faced with an imminent problem ".


"At the moment

a hypothesis of obligation for the third anti-Covid dose is not on the table.

In general, there is no taboo regarding the obligation to vaccinate and the government has already foreseen it for some categories, but in in the meantime we have decided to start a process giving confidence to citizens who have shown great willingness to vaccinate and we are currently continuing on this path ".

So at ANSA the Undersecretary of Health Andrea Costa.

"Then it is clear that if in the coming weeks we are faced with binding problems, then it will be possible to evaluate specific obligations for specific categories, but today it is not the topic".
