From Monday (23 May, 2022), wearing a mask will no longer be compulsory on public transport, nor filling in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) for most journeys, announced the Prime Minister's Office following the latest Coordination meeting.
No more masks (almost)
The obligation to wear a mask is abolished everywhere (and therefore in public transport), with the exception of hospitals, in medical practices (including at your GP) and in pharmacies.
However, wearing a mask is still recommended in very busy places or in care environments such as nursing homes or dentists, physiotherapists, psychologists and speech therapists. Good ventilation of interior spaces is also highly recommended.
End of the PLF
The ban on non-essential travel from outside the EU has also been lifted. The obligation to be tested on the 1st and 7th day, the 10-day quarantine and the obligation to be able to present: the PLF, a certificate of vaccination, recovery or a valid test result have also been removed.
However, this will not apply to travelers from a country experiencing the presence of any new variant of concern. For these travellers, the current rules (above re PLF etc) remain in effect.
