A red zone has been established in a rural town near Naples, Italy, to stop a small outbreak.
Residents in Letino have been ordered to quarantine until May 20, according to a decree from the regional government of Campania.
The small town of about 600 has seen 10 positive COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, in addition to three reported earlier this week, according to the local newspaper Il Mattino. All patients were asymptomatic.
The decree states that residents cannot leave the municipal area, and all non-essential activities, including commercial and restaurant activity, will be prohibited.
The temporary quarantine comes two days before the country’s next phase of lifting restrictions begins. Non-essential businesses, such as restaurants and hairdressers, will be allowed to reopen.
