Under Italy’s latest emergency decree, a new national three-tier framework means some Covid-19 rules will now differ based on where you are in Italy. The rules were set to come into force on Thursday November 5th, but have now been delayed until Friday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said, in order to give affected businesses time to adjust.
GRAPHS: Track the spread of coronavirus in every region of Italy Regions are to be divided into three categories: red, orange and yellow, under a new “traffic-light” system based on how severe the coronavirus situation is locally. (The government initially designated the lowest-risk zones green, but since changed the code to yellow to make clear that they still require caution.)
People in the highest-risk zones are told to stay within their comune, or municipality, and are only allowed to leave for work, study, health or other essential reasons, as Italy brings in the strictest measures since its two-month spring lockdown was eased.
