Italy publishes protocols for travellers

Tourist board hopes guidance will reassure tourists heading to Italy

The Italian Tourist Board has published a set of guidelines and protocols on for travellers heading to the country this summer.

The information covers both operational guidelines for businesses and general information for tourists on the protocols and social distancing measures that have been implemented throughout the country. The guidelines are available on the Italian Tourist Board website and includes links to pages outlining specific protocols on every aspect of a holiday experience including restaurants, seaside and beach areas, accommodation facilities, swimming pools, parks and museums.

“With the extensive and thorough protocols available online for travellers, we hope to reassure visitors that Italy is ready for tourists and has the correct measures in place to both ensure their health and safety whilst having a fantastic experience in the destination,” said Flavio Zappacosta, manager for UK and Ireland.

The guidelines include information on the mandatory wearing of face masks in enclosed spaces and that a one metre social distancing rule applies to all public areas.
