Italy’s Restrictions are being eased from Monday 26/4/2021

Restrictions change across most – but not all – of Italy as the government’s new ‘reopening’ decree comes into force on Monday, April 26th.

Rule changes only apply to areas classed as lower-risk ‘yellow’ zones under the nation’s tiered system of restrictions.
The majority of Italy’s 20 regions and autonomous provinces turn yellow from Monday after the latest health data released on Friday showed the coronavirus infection rate was falling in most of the country.
Five regions remain under the moderate-risk ‘orange’ zone rules: Basilicata, Calabria, Puglia, Sicily and Valle d’Aosta. The only region to stay in the highest-risk red zone is Sardinia.

After weeks of being limited to takeaways and deliveries only, you’ll now be able to go out for a meal if you live in a yellow zone.
Restaurants, bars, and ice-cream shops will be able to serve at both lunch and dinner – but only at outdoor tables, and must close in time for the 10 pm curfew.
