In Germany each state has its own restrictions. Clubs in Berlin have been organizing open-air parties since July. People had to present their vaccination card, proof of recovery or a test with a negative result to enter. In September, all the nightclubs opened, but only people who prove they have the Covid-19 vaccine or have recovered from the coronavirus can enter. The use of a mask is not mandatory.

From the end of September, clubbers in England will have to show that they are fully vaccinated before they are allowed into nightclubs. UK Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi put forward the proposed rules quickly after the nightclubs reopened in an announcement on Monday, July 19. By the end of September, everyone over the age of 18 will have the opportunity to receive the full vaccination and the additional two weeks for that protection to really take hold.

Nightlife Closed until October.

The third phase will begin when 85% of the inhabitants have been immunized. This goal is expected to be reached in October, although a specific date has not been set due to the unpredictability of the epidemiological situation. In this last stage, the capacity limits will be eliminated in all kinds of activities and bars and discos will open. In order to enter the nightlife spaces, it will be necessary to show the vaccination certificate against Covid-19 from the European Union or a test with a negative result.

Nightlife closed. 

Italy is in the yellow zone. But what changes for economic activities with the yellow zone? The step back would imply the return of the mask even outdoors and the limit of four people at the restaurant table both outdoors and indoors. On the other hand, there will be no return to curfew and limitations on travel within the Region or between one Region and another.
