While the Lombardy Region requests that the restaurants remain open until 10 pm, the new variants of Covid make the situation of the province of Perugia and six municipalities in the Terni area so worrying that it becomes a red zone starting from Monday 8 February and for the next two weeks. The decision was taken at the end of the meeting between the Ministry of Health, Cts, Anci and the Regional Council: the Governor of the Umbria Region Donatella Tesei should soon sign the ordinance that will close the province of Perugia and part of that of Terni at aim to contain the growing number of positive cases.
Among the restrictive measures valid for the next two weeks there should also be the closure of kindergartens and nursery schools together with the shops, “except those provided for in the case of the Prime Ministerial Decree of January 14”, as declared by the President of the Umbria Region. Tesei herself, in a communication of the past few hours, then declared: “The measure will last 15 days: we hope that they are enough and that there may be some ‘lightening’ even before that deadline”.
«With the mayors we will also consider closing those schools that normally in the “red zone” can remain open, it seems sincerely appropriate given the situation. The shops in the “red areas” will remain closed, except for those provided for in the case history of the Prime Ministerial Decree of January 14 “insists Tesei while Italy, amid the consultations of the new government and the vaccination campaign that continues at a slow speed, continues to face one of the periods more difficult than its economy.
