As coronavirus cases continue to spike in Italy, the Italian government has announced a new set of restrictions aimed at stemming the increase.
According to an announcement on Sunday, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told a press conference that new measures have now been implemented, which force bars and restaurants to close at 6 p.m and can only remain open for takeaway service. Additionally, cinemas, theaters, swimming pools, and gyms have to close. Gatherings for weddings or funerals have also been banned, as well as all events and fairs.
The government also strongly recommends that people work from home and not to leave home for any reason other than work, study, health, or emergencies. The government has implemented these new restrictions as of Monday, the 26th of October, and they will end on November 24th. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said, "If this November we respect all these new rules, we will be able to keep the epidemic curve under control... and face December, and the Christmas holidays with greater serenity."
