Italy: COVID-19 Christmas rules across Europe

Italy has implemented a three-tier system for different levels of COVID-19 lockdown, with regions placed into red, orange or yellow zones.

Red zones are the areas with most infections; here all bars, restaurants, beauty salons, and shops are shut, though factories have remained open.

Orange zones are the next worst affected regions. Restaurants and bars have shut their doors but salons are allowed to remain open.

In yellow zones, museums, theaters, cinemas, gyms and swimming pools are closed but bars and restaurants are allowed to stay open until 6 p.m. each night.

Travel between different regions is banned between December 21 and January 6, and people are also banned from leaving their homes on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

In addition, a curfew is in place across the whole country between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. – and people aren’t allowed to leave their homes unless they have special permission.
