Tuscany remains in the Orange Zone
After five weeks in the yellow zone, Toscana switched to orange last week.
From Sunday 14 February, after five weeks in the yellow zone, Tuscany will be back in orange. The calculations made by the Regional Health Agency leave no room for doubt: Tuscany's Rt is 1.09, with a confidence interval ranging from 1.04 to 1.15.
The President of Tuscany, Eugenio Giani, also confirms that Tuscany has entered the orange zone. Starting next Sunday, if the Ministry of Health respects the timetable used so far, bars, restaurants and museums will have to remain closed in our region and all the rules for the scenario with more restrictions than the yellow zone will have to be observed. Of course, the curfew remains in place from 10 pm to 5 am.
Here are the new restrictions:
