Italy will require travellers arriving from all other EU countries to quarantine for five days on arrival, the health ministry announced on Tuesday.
 Health Minister Roberto Speranza will sign a new ordinance requiring anyone entering Italy from another member of the EU or Schengen Zone to get tested for coronavirus before departure and observe quarantine regardless of the results, ministry sources told the press.

They must then get tested again after five days in isolation.

The new rules will apply to foreign visitors and returning residents alike, with the only exceptions for reasons of “proven necessity and urgency”, a ministry source told AFP.
