Covid-19: Italian bars and restaurants will close at 6:00 pm
Italy reinforces its measures after recording record figures in new Covid-19 contamination.
Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on Sunday new measures to control the spread of Covid-19. Among these measures, one concerns bars and restaurants. These establishments have been ordered to cease service after 6:00 pm.
The newspaper La Repubblica considers this a “semi-confinement for a month”. It also insists that the Prime Minister has not really tried to appease the governors of the regions, who have advocated less radical measures to save the companies hard hit by the spring lockout.
The new restrictions are accompanied by a curfew in the regions of Rome (Latium), Milan (Lombardy) and Naples (Campania) from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am.
The measures come into force today Monday, October 26, 2020 and will last until November 24.
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
