US Navy in Italy shutters base schools and day care as coronavirus numbers grow

Recommended Posts

AVIANO, Italy — The Navy is closing its base schools and day care centers in Naples and Sigonella because of rapid increases in coronavirus transmission rates, Europe’s top U.S. admiral said soon after Italy decreed a national curfew and other restrictions to contain the pandemic.

“Unfortunately, our case numbers of COVID-19, right now, at our installations and in the local surrounding areas are continuing to rise,” Adm. Robert Burke, commander of Naval Forces Europe-Africa, said Wednesday in a video on the command’s Facebook page.
