Sole 2 residents of tiny Italian town insist on masks and social distancing

The only two residents of a tiny Italian town aren’t taking any chances with the coronavirus.

Giovanni Carilli, 82, and Giampiero Nobili, 74, have no neighbors and rarely leave the largely abandoned town of Nortiesce, but they are strictly upholding the country’s COVID-19 rules, insisting on wearing masks and remaining at least a meter apart at all times.

“I’m dead scared of the virus,” Carilli told CNN. “If I get sick, I’m on my own, who would look after me? I’m old, but I want to keep living here looking after my sheep, vines, beehives, and orchard. Hunting truffles and mushrooms. I enjoy my life.”

Meanwhile, Nobili, who meets often with his neighbor for a socially distant coffee, told the news outlet:

“Wearing a mask and respecting social distancing is not just for health reasons. … It’s not something ‘bad’ or ‘good.’ If there are rules, you need to abide by them for your own sake and other people’s. It’s a matter of principle.”
