From Monday 17 January a text message from the Region will warn of the beginning or end of the default measure for the positives and their close contacts.
The new measures to simplify the procedures for quarantines and isolation will be operational starting from next week: they will be approved with a resolution in the next session of the regional council, on the proposal of the councilor for health, Luigi Icardi.

“The goal is to streamline the bureaucratic part, avoiding delays and unnecessary waiting for citizens. We have defined an operational protocol which, in compliance with national legislation, allows citizens to receive communications more quickly, directly on their telephone, with a message that has, in effect, the value of an administrative measure. By simplifying the procedures, we also guarantee greater timeliness and effectiveness in the tracking activities. ”- declare the President Alberto Cirio e the commissioner Luigi Icardi.


When the positive result of the antigenic or molecular swab is entered on the platform, the citizen will automatically receive a text message confirming the start of the isolation period with the link to an information page on the obligations established by the legislation for the isolation period.
