Since December 20, the regions of Veneto, Liguria, Marche and the province of Trento are "yellow" as Calabria, Friuli and the province of Bolzano, which were already yellow. What has changed?
There are only two relevant differences: In the yellow zone, a mask is mandatory even outdoors And a maximum of 4 people per table are allowed to sit in restaurants.
The change in travel conditions, valid until January 31, is to ensure that you can travel safely.
