The central point of the Decree is the division of Italy into three areas (depending on the kind of risk). Each Region will fall into one of the three. The general rules of the Decree apply to everyone, other areas (the so-called "orange zone" and "red zone") are subject to further limitations:
- Yellow zone (general rules apply and there are no further restrictions)
- Orange zone
Premier Giuseppe Conte formalized the different risk bands by region.
RED AREA: Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Lombardy and Calabria
ORANGE AREA: Puglia and Sicily
YELLOW AREA: Abruzzo, Basilicata, Campania, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Marche, Molise, Autonomous Province of Trento, Autonomous Province of Bolzano, Sardinia, Tuscany, Umbria and Veneto
