Italy Is Making COVID-19 Health Passes Mandatory For All Workers

Source: NPR

In the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to vaccinate its population, Italy is making COVID-19 health passes mandatory for all workers becoming the first European country to do so.

In a newly approved measure introduced Thursday by the Italian government, officials said digital vaccine certificates will be mandatory for all employees across the country.

The health pass, or "green pass," details whether a person has been fully vaccinated, tested negative or has recently recovered from the virus. The passes are available in both digital and paper formats.

Earlier this month, Italy made the green pass a requirement for its teachers and other public workers, as health care workers were required to be vaccinated since March.

1. My daughter has been in school in Italy for last 3 years. She came to states to visit the family

in August and I got to see her paper green passport. It was much more comprehensive than the CDC vax card I have. It had a special QR code tracking number and specially coded seal of the ministry of health to protect from folks making false documents.

Bravo Italy for mandating this for all workers!!
