Amid the slowdown of the viral infection caused by the SARS-CoV-2, the government of Italy has hefted the COVID-19 protocol, which mandates the citizens of the country to wear the COVID mask in the outdoor places, stated by the deputy health minister Andrea Costa of the country. From February 11, 2022, the citizens of Italy don’t need to wear masks in the outdoor spaces against the novel coronavirus.
As per the report of Costa that the health minister Roberto Speranza has signed on the draft or order which lifted the requirement of wearing masks against the COVID-19 for outdoor spaces across Italy from February 1, the COVID-19 measure has been adopted despite the risk posed by the viral infection of the novel coronavirus under the colour-coded system of the government of Italy.
While emphasizing the requirement of the step, Costa noted,” The main goal of the government behind the step is to enhance the measures that influence the opening of Italy and also decline the situation of state emergence that has come since the pandemic has emerged in the country”.

He also warned the citizens that the removal of the COVID-19 restriction doesn’t mean that people got careless about the situation as the people have to remain cautious as the infection is under control, but it hasn’t finished yet.
