The Situation on the Ground on Capri and the Amalfi Coast

Last update: 28 July, 2020

The use of masks in the region of Campania is no longer required outdoors after 22 June, but continues to be required inside public spaces like restaurants and shops. On Capri, masks must now be worn outdoors on the weekends in and around the Piazzetta, where the narrow lanes and small square make it impossible to guarantee adequate social distancing!
