No more obligation of outdoor masks throughout Italy bianca. Come announced, on the basis of the opinion of the CTS experts, the Ministry of Health confirms that from 28 June 2021 there is no obligation to cover your nose and mouth in open places, but with some precautions ed exceptions. In case of gatherings, for example, they must be worn anyway, just as the obligation remains indoors. Here’s how to behave.

Outdoors: no obligation, but …

According to the new ordinance It’s not necessary any more wear masks in places outdoors. However personal protective equipment (dpi) goes always kept with them and worn in case of gatherings, such as markets e exhibitions, O in coda for access to a service.
