Corona in Italy

The current “COVID traffic situation”

The current Corona Situation – Update April 12, 2021

We are repeatedly asked how the situation is in Italy and when it is possible to enter the country and move around in the country again. Italy recently had a new government under Draghi. Much has changed, the “Corona traffic light” remains. However, the rules for this have been revised again.

The following applies to all of Italy:

After the strict restrictions at Easter, almost all regions of Italy have now returned to the orange zone. Only three regions are still in the red zone.
Bars, restaurants, museums, and sports halls are scheduled to open in May.

However, until April 30th, it will not be possible to travel from one region of Italy to another for tourist reasons. The night curfew from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. also applies.
A current corona test must be presented when entering Italy. The EU is working on the digital vaccination pass. Travelers who come from abroad must show a negative corona test and spend 5-14 days in home quarantine.
The vaccination campaign is proceeding at the same pace as in other European countries, i.e. around 50% of the population should be immunized in summer, and travel within Europe should be possible without major restrictions or with a vaccination certificate.

Corona Traffic Light

Every week, the government decides on the traffic light color of the individual regions according to the current infection rate: white – yellow – orange – red
Depending on the color of the region, restaurants, bars, retail stores, museums, etc. may open.
Each regional government can again mark zones with a higher risk within its region. A single town in the yellow region zone can therefore be declared a “dark orange or red place”. Then everything is closed in this place and nobody leaves the place, except in justified cases like work, health and other justified cases. A pass (Autocertificazione) must be presented.
Since the zones can change quickly, it is very difficult to keep up-to-date information at short notice.
