The Italian government has tightened the coronavirus rules in response to the worsening of the coronavirus situation in the country. In addition to introducing a nationwide curfew from 10pm to 5am, the government has announced a new three-tier national framework, meaning some rules will differ based on where you are in Italy.
The new rules will come into effect from Thursday 5 November until 3 December with a monitoring system every 15 days.
The regions are divided into three categories: red, orange and yellow, under a new “traffic light” system based on the severity of the coronavirus situation at the local level.
The regions are classified as follows:
Red areas (high risk): Lombardy, Calabria, Piedmont, Valle d’Aosta
Orange areas (medium risk): Puglia, Sicily
Yellow zones: all other regions
Retail stores in those areas that do not sell essential goods such as food and pharmaceuticals are closed and people cannot travel outside their hometown. Nursery and primary schools can remain open for in-person teaching across the country, even in the red zone areas. Distance learnig is mandatory only for High schools.
There are NO restrictions on industry and transport.
Columbia Transport offices will continue their normal business operations.
