Covid, stop to amateur contact sports and school trips

Suspend contact sports, such as soccer or basketball, at an amateur level (but open gyms), and allow them at an amateur level for companies with anti-Covid protocols. It is one of the measures of the new Dpcm, signed by Conte in the night and valid for 30 days, with the anti-contagion rules. Stop also to school trips, off-site educational activities and twinning. No stopping in front of the premises after 9pm.

Covid, stop to amateur contact sports and school trips | Movida, no outdoor consumption after 9pm

Government recommends: no more than 6 indoors and wearing a mask Article 1 of the Dpcm states that “it is compulsory throughout the country to always have respiratory protective devices with you, as well as the obligation to wear them in indoor places other than private homes and in all outdoor places in except for cases in which, due to the characteristics of the places or the factual circumstances, the condition of isolation from non-cohabiting people is continuously guaranteed, and in any case without prejudice to the anti-contagion protocols and guidelines provided for economic, productive, administrative and social, as well as guidelines for the consumption of food and drinks “.

Those who engage in sporting activities, children under 6 years of age, people with pathologies and disabilities incompatible with the use of the mask are excluded from the obligation. It is also “strongly recommended” the use of devices “even in private homes in the presence of non-cohabitants”.

Holidays The dance halls and discos, outdoors or indoors, remain closed, while fairs and conferences are permitted. The novelty, compared to the previous Dpcm, is that parties are prohibited in all indoor and outdoor places. Civil or religious ceremonies such as weddings remain permitted, with the rules established by the protocols already in force.

The parties following the ceremonies can instead take place with the maximum participation of 30 people in compliance with the protocols and guidelines in force. In private homes it is “however strongly recommended to avoid parties and to receive more than 6 non-cohabitants”.

School trips The Dpcm also intervenes on student trips. “Educational trips, exchange or twinning initiatives, guided tours and educational outings planned by educational institutions of all levels are suspended – the draft reads – without prejudice to activities relating to transversal skills courses and for orientation, as well as internship activities “.

Move The squeeze concerns bars, restaurants, pubs, ice cream parlors and pastry shops. “The activities of the catering services are allowed up to 24 with table service and until 21 in the absence of table service”. “Catering with home delivery and catering with takeaway but with a ban on consumption on the spot or nearby after 9 pm” remains permitted.

Cinema and concerts The limit of 200 participants indoors and 1000 outdoors remains for the shows, with the constraint of one meter between one place and another and the allocation of seats. Events that involve gatherings are suspended if it is not possible to keep distance. The Regions and autonomous provinces may establish, in agreement with the Minister of Health, a different maximum number of spectators in consideration of the size and characteristics of the places. However, the ordinances already adopted by the Regions and the autonomous provinces are reserved.

Stadiums For sports competitions the presence of the public is allowed, “with a maximum filling percentage of 15% of the total capacity and in any case no more than the maximum number of 1000 spectators” outdoors and 200 indoors. The distance of one meter and the measurement of the fever at the entrance must be guaranteed. The regions and autonomous provinces, in relation to the progress of the epidemiological situation in their territories, may establish, in agreement with the Minister of Health, a different maximum number of spectators in consideration of the size and characteristics of the places and facilities; with reference to the maximum number of spectators for non-outdoor sports events and competitions, the ordinances already adopted by the regions and autonomous provinces are in any case subject to.

Sport All competitions, competitions and all activities related to contact sports having an amateur character are prohibited. Contact sports are allowed, according to the Dpcm, “by professional clubs and at both competitive and grassroots level by amateur associations and clubs recognized by the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI), by the Italian Paralympic Committee (CIP), in compliance of the protocols issued by the respective national sports federations, associated sports disciplines and sports promotion bodies, suitable for preventing or reducing the risk of contagion in the reference sector or in similar sectors “.

The government’s no to the Regions’ proposal on distance learning in high school During the table with the government, the governor of Emilia Romagna and president of the regions, Stefano Bonaccini, put forward the hypothesis of remote lessons (via videoconference) for high school pupils in order to ease the pressure on public transport locals. This hypothesis would have been shared by the regional presidents. However, the proposal was rejected by the executive. No distance learning, therefore, not even for high school: this is what emerged from Conte’s meeting with the heads of delegation at Palazzo Chigi.

Visitor access to RSA only in cases indicated by the health management “Patients accompanying persons are forbidden to remain in the waiting rooms of the emergency and admission departments and the first aid (DEA / PS), unless otherwise specified by the health personnel in charge”. This is what we read in a draft of the Dpcm. “The access of relatives and visitors to hospitality and long-term hospitalization facilities, assisted healthcare residences (RSA), hospices, rehabilitation facilities and residential facilities for the elderly, self-sufficient or not, is limited only to cases indicated by the health management of the facility, which it is required to take the necessary measures to prevent possible transmission of infection “, reads again.

The Ministry of Health: 10 days of quarantine for the asymptomatic “Asymptomatic people who have tested positive for Sars-Cov-2 can return to the community after a period of isolation of at least 10 days from the onset of positivity, at the end of which a molecular test is performed with a negative result (10 days + test) “. This is what is read in the new circular of the Ministry of Health which updates the indications regarding the duration and term of isolation and quarantine. “Symptomatic people who have tested positive can return to the community after an isolation period of at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms accompanied by a molecular test with negative result performed after at least 3 days without symptoms (10 days, of which at least 3 days without symptoms + test).

Quarantine: 14 days for close contacts infected “The close contacts of cases with Sars-Cov-2 infection confirmed and identified by the health authorities – the minister’s circular reads – must observe a quarantine period of 14 days from the last exposure to the case; or a period of quarantine of 10 days from the last exposure with a negative antigen or molecular test carried out on the tenth day “. It is also recommended to: carry out the molecular test at the end of the quarantine to all people who live or come into regular contact with fragile and / or at risk of complications.

Positive asymptomatic for a long time, out after 21 days “People who, despite no longer presenting symptoms, continue to test positive for the molecular test for Sars-Cov-2, in case of absence of symptoms for at least a week, will be able to stop isolation after 21 days from the onset of symptoms. This criterion may be modulated by the health authorities in agreement with clinical experts and microbiologists / virologists, taking into account the immune status of the persons concerned (in immunosuppressed patients the period of contagion can be prolonged) “.
