”The second reason is to reinforce our vaccine campaign,” he continued.

These measures will be among some of the strictest in the world.

Workers face a fine of up to €1,500 if they do not comply, while employers face a fine of up to €1,000.

The measures will remain in effect as long as Italy remains in a state of emergency, which is currently until December 31st.

Three-quarters of the Italian population are currently fully vaccinated.
