Update of the situation in Abruzzo

The Government has adopted the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers (Dpcm) of 9 March 2020 bearing new measures for the containment and contrast of the spread of the Covid-19 virus. The measures are extended throughout the national territory and prohibits all forms of gathering of people in public spaces or in places open to the public. In force from 10 March 2020, the provision will be valid until 3 April 2020.
In compliance with the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers (Dpcm) of 8 March 2020, the opening of museums and places of culture is suspended throughout the Abruzzo region

Presidential Ordinance no. 2 of 8 March 2020 issued by the Abruzzo Region establishes that all people entering in Abruzzo and coming from Lombardy and the provinces of Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia, Rimini, Pesaro and Urbino, Alessandria, Asti, Novara, Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Vercelli, Padua, Treviso and Venice have the obligation to inform their general practitioner and observe an isolation period of 14 days.

Now and for the next few weeks, the rule is to STAY HOME. To preserve our health and that of our loved ones we must follow carefully and responsibly the measures taken by the Government, especially for those who are most exposed to the risks of infection (immunosuppressed people, the elderly, people with cardiovascular diseases, cancer patients).

We are confident that we will overcome this difficult time soon with everyone's commitment.

Waiting to get back to normality, we have created the section "Abruzzo comes to you". Just for you, here’s a "window" towards the beauty of our region with video tutorials, museums and exhibitions virtual tours, audio guides, podcasts of TV broadcasts, pieces of theatrical performances and readings. Many proposals which you can listen to and watch to bring Abruzzo into your homes.
