Italy Readies Curbs on the Unvaccinated as Covid Cases Rise

  • New restrictions could be approved as soon as Wednesday
  • Governments across Europe are stepping up virus measures

Italy’s government is debating tough new measures to stem an increase in coronavirus cases, which could include restrictions on unvaccinated people and could be approved as soon as Wednesday.

The measures would only allow those with proof of inoculation to access venues such as cinemas and theaters, according to people familiar with the talks. The rules would still allow the unvaccinated to enter their workplace after testing negative for the virus.
