Maltese travellers to the Italian region of Puglia will now need to self-quarantine for 14 days when arriving.

The new requirement comes as the Italian government tries to limit the influx of COVID-19 cases to the country.

It also comes after six tourists tested positive for the virus after returning home to Bari, the capital of Puglia, following a holiday in Malta. Announcing the new measures, Puglia regional president Michele Emiliano said that the same precautions would be taken with travellers from Spain or Greece.

A separate group of tourists that returned home to Sicily also tested positive after holidaying in Malta, leading to the mayor of a Sicilian town to criticise the island’s lack of safety precautions after he saw images of a packed Paceville over the weekend.
