The family flew from Chicago to Rome via Frankfurt, and were complying with the mandatory two-week quarantine required by Italy of all foreign nationals entering the country when they tested positive. Italian authorities have now contacted all involved airports and airlines to begin contact tracing. The announcement was made on June 3, the day Italy opens its borders to all European Union citizens with no required quarantine.
