Italy reimposes distance education at all levels in the areas in red, the maximum level of alert, as well as “in territories where the incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days has been higher than 250” . This is established by the new decree with measures against the coronavirus, approved yesterday by the prime minister, Mario Draghi, which comes into effect on Saturday and last until April 6, Easter included.

Otherwise, little changes for Italians: mandatory mask, social distance, banning of meetings and curfew from 22 to 5:00. The color alert system is maintained and, in fact, the restrictions in the red zones are tightened. Relaxation at nightlife or in public places is also not envisaged, and Pools and gyms will remain closed with no prospect of reopening.

The new decree is valid for one month, but contemplates the opening to the public of cinemas and theaters for March 27, with security measures and if the epidemiological curve allows it. Parties will continue to be prohibited and game rooms and discos will remain closed, even in white areas like Sardinia. The island last week became the first Italian region to lift restrictions, but has had to backtrack after a new spike in cases. Regarding the curfew, it will be a “technical table” that decides on any modification.
