The government will extend measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 until May 17, while preparing to open certain essential sectors of the economy beginning May 4.

  • Mandatory 14-day quarantine for all travelers entering Italy, including those who are asymptomatic. Exceptions to the quarantine rule include: health care personnel, cross-border workers entering for essential employment reasons and returning to their country of residence, flight and maritime crew members, as well as those visiting Italy for 72 hours for urgent work reasons.
  • Certain business sectors will be allowed to reopen beginning May 4, including manufacturing, construction, real estate brokers and wholesale trade linked to manufacturing and construction. These businesses may begin preparing for reopening starting April 27.

Additional information: All travelers entering the country must continue to inform the authorities of their arrival. Those infected with the COVID-19 virus who violate home quarantine can face imprisonment from three to 18 months and a fine ranging from € 500 to € 5,000. Italy closed all non-essential services and extended the domestic travel ban earlier this month.

Analysis & Comments: Non-essential travel to Italy, as well as domestic travel, continue to be limited to essential work-related travel.
