Italy to require 5-day quarantines for travelers from UK

Italy is requiring persons who arrive from Britain to do five days of quarantine as well as take a COVID-19 swab test

The new requirement could have consequences for the Euro 2020 soccer competition, since England's national team is likely to play in Rome if it advances from the group stage.

Tourism, especially by U.S. visitors, is an important part of Italy's economy, and the sector is eagerly awaiting Americans' return.
