News From Italy
It is not possible for US citizens to travel to Italy for vacation. Those on more “essential” travel purposes (including students, business people, and those visiting relatives) can travel from the US to Italy but need to quarantine. Recently, it was announced Delta and Alitalia will be offering COVID-19 tests on direct flights from the US to Rome in hopes this will allow people to forgo the quarantine. However, from what we can tell, this has not been approved by the government as a way to eliminate the quarantine nor will it be available for tourists in the near term.
