Italy has eased its coronavirus restrictions for most of the country including the Lazio region around Rome and the Lombardia region around Milan.
The move, announced by Italian health minister Roberto Speranza, is based on regional levels of covid-19 risk, under Italy’s tiered system of restrictions.
It also means that museums and archaeological sites, which have been closed since 6 November, can reopen but only from Monday to Friday.
The regions of Puglia, Sardegna, Sicilia, Umbria, and Bolzano remain orange zones. There are currently no regions in Italy’s highest-risk red zones.
