Sicilians returning from Malta to undergo mandatory quarantine and swab test

As from Friday, 14th August, Sicilians returning from Malta will have to undergo a mandatory two weeks of quarantine as well as to take a mandatory swab test.

Sicily has imposed these restrictions on its residents returning from Malta, Greece and Spain after an increase of Covid-19 cases.

The Ansa News Agency reported these restrictions were published in a Legal Notice signed by Governor Nell Musemeci.

Sicilians returning from Malta must register on the portal “siciliacoronavirus.it” and must remain quarantined at home for two weeks and then take a swab test.

So far, this does not apply to Maltese travelling to Sicily.
