Umbria in the yellow zone

Published: 05/11/2020 By The Abode Team

Regions are divided into three categories: red, orange and yellow, under a new 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.

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.

Conte gave a televised address on Wednesday evening, two days after the new system was announced, detailing which regions would be under which category. He confirmed that the regions are classified as follows:

Red (high risk) zones: Lombardy, Calabria, Piedmont, Valle d'Aosta

Orange (medium risk) zones: Puglia, Sicily

Yellow zones: All other regions;  Abruzzo, Basilicata, Campania, Emilia-Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Liguria, Marche, Molise  Sardinia, Tuscany  Umbria, Veneto, and the Provinces of Trento and Bolzano.

 "With these measures, we can cool the contagion curve and regain some semblance of normality," Conte said in his address. Red-zone restrictions will resemble those imposed earlier this year during a severe national lockdown, with residents' movements curtailed. But unlike then, churches and parks will be open, hairdressers will operate and restaurants can serve take-out food until the nighttime curfew. Retail stores in those areas not selling essential goods such as food and pharmaceuticals are to shut, and people will be restricted from travelling outside their home town or city. Schools will also have to move to distance learning from the second grade of middle school upwards in red zone areas, while this is only mandatory for high school classes in other areas. 

On a national level a 10pm curfew is in force from Thursday, museums will shut, and shopping centres will be closed at the weekend.
