A magnitude 2.6 earthquake struck Italy, 2 km north of Camaiore, Tuscany, reported the National Institute of Volcanology and Geophysics.

On Tuesday, Italy’s agricultural association announced that the government’s ban on moving around the country, which aims to stem the spread of the COVID-19 disease, would not cause food shortages and basic needs. On Monday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte issued a decree that expanded quarantine in northern regions across the country.

All travel between and within regions is prohibited unless necessary for work, health or other serious purposes.
