Italy: Avoid beach parties due to covid-19 risk says Lazio Region

Lazio Region links nightlife for covid-19 clusters at beach resorts.

Lazio regional health authorities have linked nightlife with covid-19 clusters at Sabaudia and Fregene, popular beach resorts near Rome.

Establishments at both beaches have been shut down in recent days, with staff placed under quarantine, following a cluster of coronavirus cases.

Lazio health authorities say the clusters are "linked to nightlife and decreased attention" over precautions designed to contain covid-19 contagion.

"Avoiding gatherings, beach parties and discos are essential elements to limit the spread of the virus," the Lazio Region stated on 3 August.
