Will a school mask be mandatory in September? At first, absolutely not, then the epidemiological picture will be evaluated step by step. The hope is that the topic of recommendation and individual responsibility in relation to compliance can be used. I’d be a little more careful in saying no mask.”
So Health Minister Roberto Speranza at RTL 102.5.
“There is no obligation – settle down – However, this does not mean the absence of a mask, this is true for the stadium, for an evening at the cinema or in the theater. To say there is no obligation is to always have the element of individual responsibility“.

We did it this summer, – Concludes – Managing another peak of the epidemic without applying any restrictions. “

Today we are facing a virus that is less harmful and does not cause any problems for children. In the event that there is a vaccine to cover itself, I don’t see why we still have to continue to stick to the mask.“.
“But how is it on August 27 – Concludes – Two weeks into school, to say such a thing? After all the summer, rightly, did none of the men wear it on the beach, at the disco, at the cinema, at an aperitif, at concerts and on a trip to the mountains?“.
