From June 3 they will be all regional borders open, including Lombardy. We will then return to circulate freely in all the Regions of Italy. The decision was taken by the government after analyzing all the indices of the infection, coming to define that RT is below 1 at national and regional level. The go-ahead for the decision came on Friday evening after a round of government consultations with the presidents of the regions. “The current law decree provides for 3 infraregional movements – said the minister Roberto Speranza -. At the moment there are no reasons to review the planned reopening of travel ».
Tensions between the government and the regions have not been lacking in recent days, especially Lombardy, which has paid the highest price in terms of victims. To apply this provision for the total opening of circulation no decree will be required from the government. Just apply the law decree of 16 May, which reads: “From June 3, 2020, travel on the national territory can only be limited with measures adopted pursuant to article 2 of the decree-law of March 25, 2020, n. 19, in relation to specific areas of the national territory, according to the principles of adequacy and proportionality to the epidemiological risk actually present in these areas “.
However, the faculty of government and regions remains to trigger new red areas in case the infection should regain strength, as suggested by the Government’s Scientific Technical Committee.
