Coronavirus: The situation at Lake Garda
Thanks to the mild climate, Lake Garda still offers real summer feelings: Here, you will get perfectly prepared for safe holidays at Lake Garda, with an overview of all rules to be observed.
Which general rules must still be observed?
- The well-known measures – washing hands, disinfecting, keeping your distance, etc. – should still be observed.
- Outdoors, the obligation to wear a mask has been lifted, but you must always have a mask with you and wear it if the minimum distance cannot be kept or in case of gatherings of people.
- Indoors, wearing a face mask is still mandatory (except for one’s private home).
- Children under 6 years of age and people who cannot wear a mask because of health reasons, are excepted from the mandatory protections. People practising a sport do not have to wear them, neither.
What do I need to know when travelling to Lake Garda?
- Entering to Italy from EU countries and Schengen states is possible without quarantine.
- On the one hand, it is still necessary to register the journey with the digital Passenger Locator Form.
