NEWS: Italy Announces Plan to Ease Lockdown

"Respect the rules or the curve goes back." - Giuseppe Conte

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte plans to start lifting measures of the COVID-19 lockdown on May 4th, but it has many Italian’s wondering if it is too early.

Conte has stated that parts of the economy will start to reopen in less than a week. His plan is to start with construction and manufacturing first, then have retail stores and museums open 2 weeks after.

July may be the earliest opening time for restaurants and hairdressers, but Conte also warns that by doing this it could cause a second phase of the virus spreading.

Conte still advises Italian residents that it’s still crucial to continue to practice social distancing when out in public settings.
