October 22, 2020

ROME — The Italian region that includes Naples is applying overnight curfews to help rein in rapidly rising daily caseloads of the coronavirus.

The governor of Campania signed an ordinance requiring people stay in their homes from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., starting Friday until at least Nov. 13.

A day earlier, the Lazio region that includes Rome ordered a similar curfew for 30 days. Lombardy, including Milan with its traditionally lively night life, also will be locked down starting Thursday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Arzano, a town of 33,000 where 22 coronavirus infections were confirmed this month, has been declared a ‘’red zone.’’ Residents must stay home except for essential jobs or other reasons.
