As the number of Coronavirus cases continue to rise here in Italy, the government has decided to impose new, national measures to help stop the spread of the virus. As of today, masks are required at all times while outdoors. Not only are masks required outdoors but they are also required in in one’s own home if someone who does not live with you is visiting. Those who do not comply will face a fat 400-1000 euro fine. Since the reopening of the country after lock down, rules regarding mask wearing had gradually relaxed a little. Masks have been required in all indoor public places but wearing masks outdoors eventually was relaxed to only wearing them when one was not able to social distance. It’s a sad day indeed!
