On top of nationwide restrictions, each region of Italy has the power to tighten its local Covid-19 restrictions. This map shows where the rules are strictest.


All regions of Italy have to follow the national measures ordered in the latest emergency decree, which include early closing for bars and restaurants, mostly online lessons for high schoolers, a ban on parties and mandatory face masks everywhere in public.


But some regions have also opted to impose their own restrictions locally, ranging from nighttime curfews to a ban on leaving your own province except for essentials.

Others have ordered schools to go entirely remote instead of just 75 percent as required by national rules.


This map gives a snapshot of the different restrictions across the country.

The region with the strictest measures is Campania, where residents are not allowed to leave their own province of residence except for work, health or other necessities.

The region has also ordered both primary and secondary schools, as well as universities, to conduct all teaching online until at least the end of October.

A nightly curfew is in place from 11pm to 5am, takeaway restaurants have to close by 10:30 pm, and even jogging is restricted to between the hours of 6 and 8:30 am (in city centres, public parks, seafronts and other crowded areas).

The neighbouring region of Calabria has followed in closing schools – though only secondary – and universities, and declared a curfew between midnight and 5 am.

Sicily has also moved high schools online and imposed a curfew from 11pm to 5am.

In the north Lombardy has adopted similar measures, although schools have been given slightly more time to go remote.

Two other regions, Lazio and Piedmont, have set curfews, as has the autonomous province of Bolzano (Alto Adige/South Tyrol).

Meanwhile Abruzzo has closed high schools and universities until further notice.

In all other regions of Italy the nationwide rules apply, with minor variations. Here's where to find the latest rules in force where you are.
