(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 15 – Half of Italy was on lockdown on
Monday after a recent upswing on COVID-19 contagion and the
government’s imposition of new rules making it more likely that
regions get classified as coronavirus red zones.
    As a result half of Italy’s regions are now red, meaning all
non-essential shops are closed there, bars and restaurants can
only do takeaway services, pupils have do class via distance
learning and trips outside the home are only allowed for work or
health reasons or other situations of need.
    As a result, eight out of 10 of Italy’s school pupils were
having online lessons on Monday.
    People are allowed to do a little exercise on their own in the
area of their home.
    The rest of the country also faces restrictions.
    The other half of Italy’s region’s have been classed as
high-risk orange zones until Easter, even those whose contagion
data would normally see them classified as moderate-risk yellow
zones.
    In orange zones, bars and restaurants can only do takeaway
services.
    But all shops can open and children can have lessons in school.
    The exception is Sardinia, where many of the coronavirus
restrictions have been relaxed as the island is considered a
low-risk white zone.
    All of Italy, except for Sardinia, will be a red zone for three
days over Easter. (ANSA).
