Italy travel advice updated....

The UK's Foreign Office has now updated its travel advice to Italy in the wake of the rising number of deaths from Coronavirus Covid-19.  It is now warning against all but essential travel to 11 quarantined towns in Italy.

The government said anyone returning from those towns must self-isolate, it is also advising those who have travelled north of Pisa to remain home for 14 days should they develop flu-like symptoms.

The FCO advise against all but essential travel to 10 small towns in Lombardy (Codogno, Castiglione d’Adda, Casalpusterlengo, Fombio, Maleo, Somaglia, Bertonico, Terranova dei Passerini, Castelgerundo and San Fiorano) and one in Veneto (Vo’ Euganeo), which have been isolated by the Italian authorities.  The government of Italy has introduced extraordinary measures that allow regions to implement civil protection measures in response to coronavirus, including the isolation of these towns.

Further information on coronavirus, including advice on preparing for foreign travel and helping reduce the spread of the virus, is available on the TravelHealthPro website.

The FCO is still currently advising against all travel to Hubei Province in China, and against all but essential travel to the rest of mainland China. It also advises against all but essential travel to Daegu and Cheongdo in South Korea.
