Covid update for Italy

In yellow regions in Italy, museums are allowed to reopen again

Despite the corona restrictions in Place in Italy, the government has given permission museums and exhibitions to reopen in yellow regions starting tomorrow. This applies to the regions of Sardinia, Tuscany, Campania, Trento and Basilicata. Within these yellow regions, residents are allowed to travel freely, and shops and restaurants are open until 18:00.

That's good news for the archaeological museum in Pompeii. The tourist attraction can again receive visitors after a months-long closure.

In the rest of Italy, code orange and red apply. A code red has a hard lockdown, while in the orange areas, which are the largest part of Italy, a mild lockdown is in force. In those areas the catering industry is closed and people are allowed to visit up to two family members. Museums and cultural institutions in these regions must remain closed for the time being.
