COVID-19 and Italy, 3/11/20

Italy’s Ministry of Health has reported a total of 10,590 cases, including 827 deaths nationwide.

The Italian government also announced additional social distancing measures, including the closure of non-essential businesses nationwide. Only stores that “sell basic necessities” (e.g., food and gasoline) will remain open; other stores must close.

Restaurants and bars will be closed, but food delivery services will remain active. Essential services such as laundry and funerary will remain available, but other businesses in the service sector such as hairdressers and barbers will be closed. Banks, post offices, and government offices will remain open as will industries necessary to maintain the national supply chain.

The government is encouraging those who can work from home to do so….”
