LOCAL TRAVEL ADVISORY
Demonstrations have increased across Italy in response to COVID-19 measures. All Wyverns are encouraged to avoid large gatherings to minimize spreading and exposure to COVID-19, and to remain in compliance with Italian law. As a reminder, military members cannot participate in any demonstrations in a foreign country, and should avoid these demonstrations. Civilian employees are highly encouraged to not participate in any demonstrations, as they may violate the standards expected of federal employees.
CURRENT DECREE AND ORDINANCES
The Italian national government has issued a decree effective 26 Oct. 2020. This decree extends many of the measures regarding face coverings, physical distancing, and gatherings, and the decree is effective from 26 Oct. 2020, until 24 Nov. 2020.
FACE COVERING AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING
Example A: If you are walking down a street or through a park, you would need to wear a face covering because you cannot guarantee that you will remain one (1) meter from a non-cohabitant.
Example B: If you are hiking in the woods or a remote part of the mountains alone or with a cohabitant, then you would not need to wear a face covering because you can remain isolated from non-cohabitants. (But remember, you should still have a face covering with you and available to wear.)
Example A: If you are in a private, personal office, then you do not need to wear a face covering while you are alone.
Example B: If you have a desk in an open workspace, such as a front office, or work in a hangar or garage where others can freely enter or pass by, then you must wear a face covering.
OTHER HEALTH MEASURES:
DINING AND NIGHT LIFE
Please note, when at a restaurant, bar or other eating establishment, you do not need to wear a mask while seated at a table or when consuming food or drink at a bar, but you must wear a mask every time you get up from the table, or if at a bar, when you are done consuming food or drink.
