Puglia is Classified as a Covid White Zone – What Does that Mean?
Looking for the perfect place to enjoy peaceful Italian getaways this summer? If so, there’s no doubt that you would enjoy a trip to Puglia. Also known as Apulia, this stunning destination has everything you could ask for; from beautiful beaches, to tasty gelato. While all this is undoubtedly appealing, many travelers are concerned about Covid and the effect it could have on their trip.
The good news is that the situation is being handled well here, and the region is currently classified as a ‘White Zone’. But what exactly does this mean for your vacations in Puglia?
What is a White Zone?
Italy uses a simple color-coded system to indicate the risk level and Covid restrictions in place in particular areas. Puglia was one of the earlier destinations to be classified as a White Zone, and while other parts of the country have taken a little more time to improve, they’re all in a much safer position now.
Fortunately, as the danger has lessened, the risks and limitations have reduced – and now, there aren’t any red (highest), orange (medium), or yellow (moderate) zones left.
What this means is simple: Italy is generally a safe destination to travel to in 2021. This is great for pretty much anyone hoping to have relaxing Puglian tours, since you won’t have to worry too much about the Coronavirus during your stay. Of course, it is always best to be cautious, but there’s no need to stress yourself about safety as long as you’re careful.
What safety precautions are in place?
Better yet, the limitations really aren’t too drastic either. In fact, since the White Zone is the lowest threat level, the restrictions are minimal – allowing you to make the most of your vacation.
As you may expect, the current safety regulations include some of the most common ones, such as wearing a mask indoors, social distancing, or a capacity limit on public transportation and venues. A number of restrictions from other zones, such as curfew and the requirement to wear masks outdoors, won’t apply in these areas, which is another bonus for anyone who wants to enjoy the nightlife or other aspects of Puglia.
For the most part, you’ll find that even with the minor inconveniences, you’ll be able to enjoy your adventure tours in Puglia without fuss.
