Mar 30, 2022 191

The Italian government is preparing to phase out Italy's main covid restrictions, from masks to the Green Pass, after the state of emergency expires on 31 March. The emergency legislation has granted authorities sweeping powers to tackle the pandemic and has been extended several times since it was introduced in January 2020.

Once the legislation expires the government will dismantle its structure of coronavirus advisors, including the technical scientific committee (CTS) and the emergency covid commissioner General Figliuolo, and will scrap the colour-coded covid risk system for Italian regions.
