From next January 20 to access the shops of hairdressers and beauticians it will be necessary to show the Green Pass.
Vip vaccinated against Covid-19: from Canalis to Lollobrigida
The diffusion of the Omicron variant in the country is making it necessary to apply new security measures also for activities that until now did not require the possession of a Green Pass. Under the attention of the legislator, this time, also the so-called services for the person: from next January 20, also to go to the hairdresser and the beautician, the basic green certification will be required, obtainable with vaccination, healing or negative tampon.
The new rules at the hairdresser and beautician
Thanks to the still recent memory of the long months of closure linked to the health emergency of the first waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in the attempt to ensure the regular conduct of activities in maximum safety for customers and workers, hairdressers and beauty centers will be held from January 20 to check the Green Pass for customers who want to have access to the services in the salon. The details concerning these specific commercial activities are contained in the text of the new anti Covid decree approved by the Council of Ministers on January 5, 2022, whose publication in the Official Journal, scheduled for January 7, is expected shortly.
To go to the hairdresser or beautician, where the use of protective devices such as gloves, masks, capes and disposable gowns has been mandatory for some time, it will therefore be necessary to show the well-known basic green certification, or the one issued to vaccinated subjects. , i.e. those who have completed at least the primary vaccination course (two doses) and those who can demonstrate that they have been cured of Covid.
Access allowed with the Green Pass also to those who can show the result of a negative swab (ie, an antigenic swab valid for 48 hours or molecular swab valid for 72 hours). This last part of the new measures is the result of the mediation obtained by the Government to allow access to the hairdresser and beauty centers even for customers who have not carried out the vaccination without making those who occupy the same spaces risk infection. The penalty for not possessing, or failing to ask for, the Green Pass could be between 400 and 1,000 euros.
The Green Pass also for banks and shops
Hairdressers and beauty centers are only the first of the public activities that will be subject to greater health monitoring from 20 January: the Green Pass, already required for catering, cinemas, theaters, will be an access requirement, from the 1st February, also for banks, public offices and shops with the exclusion of supermarkets and other activities linked exclusively to the purchase and sale of foodstuffs.
Between smartworking, regulation of access to public transport and new changes to the quarantine timing of those involved in school activities, the fight against the virus is becoming more and more intense, in an attempt to stem a situation that is increasingly complex every day.
Among the most impressive measures of the new decree, the institution of the obligation to vaccinate over 50 certainly stands out, an unprecedented measure in Europe, with the recovered who will have the obligation to vaccinate within six months. Again with the aim of accelerating vaccinations, from February 15, for workers over 50, both in the public and private sectors, the possession of a reinforced Green Pass is expected. Also for the latter cases, important sanctions are envisaged to ensure compliance with the obligation.
