A group of Dutch holidaymakers is stuck at the airport Sicily. Under the new corona rules on the Italian island, which took effect on Thursday, people must take a rapid test upon arrival.
Three people on the run turned out to have taken a positive test. The Italian authorities have decided that these people and another 36 fellow travelers, who had a negative test but were in their vicinity, should not be allowed to leave the airport.

The authorities first wanted to take the group of travelers to a quarantine hotel, where they would all have to take a real corona test and wait there for the results. “But the Italians have come back from this idea,” said a Corendon spokeswoman. “Unfortunately, the Italian authorities are leading. Thanks in part to the efforts of the mayor and the Dutch embassy, travelers can go home on Friday. ”
