Quarantine or not? How do departures and returns work with regard to the countries of the European Union? Catania airport informs all passengers about the new rules in force for travel outside the Italian territory. There has always been a lot of confusion about handling passengers at the airport but now the situation seems to have taken a more decisive turn. Departures and travel in general slowly begin to come to life. However, it is important to always act with caution and gradually to achieve a regular resumption of all activities in small steps.
Does the quarantine obligation remain or not?
Starting from mid-May, the rules for travel and returns from abroad change. No quarantine for those returning from an EU country. Starting from May 15, 2021, the quarantine for all those who return to Italy after a trip to one of the EU member states is eliminated.
Despite the absence of isolation, it is still necessary to keep the controls and monitoring of the situation always active. In fact, to avoid isolation, there will be other prerogatives, such as:
- The presentation of a certificate of vaccination or recovery which remains valid for a period of six months;
- Alternatively, it will be necessary to present a certification concerning the negative result of a swab carried out 48 hours before departure for the return to Italy.
The obligation of a negative swab (molecular or rapid) carried out within 48 hours of departure remains a mandatory obligation for all travelers and is necessary in order to avoid home isolation upon return.
What are the security measures present at the airport?
Currently, Catania airport uses all the safety measures provided for by the health protocol in force as every airport. The use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and social distancing are the basis of the airport's operation and the safe management of departing and arriving passengers. Each traveler is carefully monitored by measuring the temperature which must never exceed 37.5. In case the temperature exceeds the imposed limit, the passenger is allowed a second measurement after a few minutes. In the event that the situation does not change, access to the airport will not be allowed.
It is also strongly recommended to use efficient masks approved by the health protocol. Cloth masks are highly discouraged as some airlines do not allow you to travel with cloth masks or similar. Sanitizing liquid dispensers have been installed throughout the airport available to all passengers. Each area of the Terminal is constantly sanitized. In addition, UV devices have been installed at the security checks to sanitize the storage trays for each use.
