(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 18 – Valle d’Aosta could soon become
Italy’s first region to be classed as a low-COVID-contagion-risk
white zone.
    This would make it possible for the small Alpine region’s gyms,
swimming pools, cinemas, theatres and ski slopes to reopen.
    The region’s coronavirus parameters look to be in line with that
of a white zone, with a COVID-19 Rt reproduction rate below 1
and an incidence of fewer than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
    Valle d’Aosta has been under this incidence threshold for three
consecutive weeks.
    It has eight COVID patients in its hospitals and just two of
them are in intensive care.
    The final decision will be made by Health Minister Roberto
Speranza when he updates the COVID-risk classification of
Italy’s regions.
    Under Italy’s tiered system of coronavirus restrictions, in
high-risk red zones all restaurants and bars are closed, except
for takeaways and home deliveries, and all non-essential shops
are closed too.
    In medium-high risk orange zones, shops can do business but
restaurants and bars must stay closed.
    In moderate risk yellow zones, shops are open and so are bars
and restaurants until 6pm
A nationwide curfew from 10pm until 5am remains in force and a
ban on travel between regions has been extended until February
25. (ANSA).
