Tourism | March 16, 2021, Tuesday // 15:29|  views

The last weekend of freedom ends before the closures that will accompany Italy until Easter Monday: from today 48 million Italians from 10 regions plus the Province of Trento are in the red zone to ease coronavirus infections.

The other regions, except Sardinia in the white area, are in the orange area.

The decree published on Friday in the Official Gazette cancels the yellow color from the Italian regions until April 6.

The Government has published the new faq, which indicate the restrictions that regulate citizens.

TRAVEL - In the red zone, only travel is allowed for "proven reasons for work, health or necessity", as well as the return to one's residence, domicile or home. Visits to friends or relatives or to another private home for reasons other than work, health or necessity are prohibited until April 2 and on April 6. On 3, 4 and 5 April - and this also applies to the orange areas - it will instead be allowed, once a day, to move to another inhabited private house in the same region, between 5 and 22, for a maximum of two people, in addition to those already living together in the destination home. The person or two people who move will still be able to bring their children under the age of 14 with them

SECOND HOUSES - In the red zone it is possible to reach second houses, even in another region (to and from any area: white, yellow, orange, red), but only for those who can prove that they have actually been entitled to go to the same property before January 14, 2021. All subsequent entitlements are excluded (including short leases not subject to registration). The house of destination must not be inhabited by people not belonging to the family unit cohabiting with the entitled person and only the same unit can go there.

SELF -DECLARATION - In the red zone you must always be able to demonstrate that the movement is among those permitted, also by means of a self-declaration that can be made on pre-printed forms already supplied to the police forces.

PLACES OF WORSHIP - In the red zone it is possible to move to reach the place of worship closest to home. Religious functions with the participation of people can be carried out, as long as they comply with the protocols signed by the Government with their respective confessions.

WALKS AND SPORTS - In the red zone, walks and outdoor physical activities are allowed only in the vicinity of one's home, with the obligation to respect one meter away from other people. Ok also to sporting activity exclusively in the territory of one's own municipality, from 5 to 22, individually and outdoors, maintaining the interpersonal distance of two meters. If you run or bike, you can also 'cross over' into the territory of another municipality, "as long as this movement remains functional only to the sporting activity itself and the final destination coincides with the municipality of departure".

BARS AND RESTAURANTS - In the red zone it is always forbidden to consume food and drinks inside the restaurants and other catering activities and in their vicinity. Takeaway is allowed from 5am to 10pm; home delivery is allowed without time limits. The restaurants of the hotels are open for customers who stay there, even in the red zone. Therefore, catering is allowed (without time limits) only within the hotel or accommodation facility where you are staying.

SHOPS AND MARKETS - In the red zone, only commercial activities that sell food or basic necessities remain open. The retail sale of items for early childhood is also allowed. Stores that sell clothing or footwear for both adults and children may remain open for the sole sale of children's products, closing other areas
