Rome is set to approve a new law Wednesday requiring an Italian health pass to allow access to certain social activities or venues in legislation similar to that recently approved by France, an Italian government source close to the matter told MNI.

Unlike the French regulations, Italy's requirements will be more flexible; the health pass will be mandatory for big venues such as stadiums for sports events, concerts but, unlike in France, not restaurants or cinemas, sources said. It is yet to be seen if it will be necessary for internal trips made by plane or car.

A person will be eligible for the pass if completely vaccinated, has a negative Covid test or can prove recovery from the virus in the past six months. The main objective of these measures, expected to be passed no later than July 26, is to help contain the latest surge of Covid infections and encourage the vaccination process.
