With the order of the Ministry of Health of 7/10/2020, the list of Countries considered at risk has been updated.
All persons who in the 14 days before entering Italy have stayed or transited through Belgium, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Czech Republic and Spain are obliged, under penalty of a fine, to present the result of a negative swab carried out in the 72 hours prior their entry or, alternatively, to do a molecular or antigen test within 48 hours of entry into Italy.
While waiting to undergo the test at the local health company of reference, people are subjected to fiduciary isolation.
At the Venice Airport there is a swab area for passengers returning from the aforementioned countries; the test is free, without reservation, according to flight schedule and is carried out by medical staff in a dedicated area in the Arrivals area, indicated by signage.
Typically, they carry out the so-called "Quick test".
We remember that:
- Malta, Greece and Croatia are no longer included in the so-called risk countries,
- for passengers returning from Sardinia, the test is on a voluntary basis, as per regional ordinance
- the test at the airport is intended only for incoming passengers and it is not possible to do it to external people.
