The president of the region, Rossi, is worried by the new outbreaks of foreign origin and especially by those coming from Albania where yesterday 13 flights from Tirana were registered.
The region has already issued an ordinance on July 17 with indications on the methods of reception for citizens coming with flights from non-Schengen areas at the airports of Pisa and Florence. The ordinance instructs the territorially competent Healthcare Authorities to set up reception stations for citizens from Pisa and Florence airports with flights from non-Schengen areas and the registration of subjects entering Italy, who must carry out the 14-day period of fiduciary isolation with active surveillance.
Previously on July 16 the president had met the Albanian consul in order to commit diplomatic structures to the maximum information and dissemination of anti-Covid provisions. The governor had threatened to block flights as had happened with Serbia, Kosovo and Montenegro, if he had not had access to the list of travelers to be able to register and force them to the 14-day quarantine.
"If the tracking of passengers and their active surveillance will not be possible, there will only be one option: to block direct flights ”, the governor of the region had threatened. Currently, only Albanians who are in possession of a residence permit and are resident in the country can travel to Italy, given that the European Commission had left Albania off the list of countries that can freely transit to EU countries.
To run for cover, according to the ordinance, the ASL of Tuscany has set up control points at the airports of Pisa and Florence where it will also be possible to carry out serological and molecular tests and also guarantee the possibility of isolation at medical hotels for positive subjects as well as for any close contacts.
