Takeaway is allowed until midnight, home deliveries are allowed without time constraints. In restaurants, there may be a maximum of 6 people at the table. The restaurateurs must post signs with the maximum number of people allowed in the room “.
“School activities will continue in the presence, it is a fundamental asset for our country. For secondary schools, more flexible methods of teaching will be favored, with pupils coming in from 9 and with afternoon shifts if possible. universities are expected to implement teaching organization plans according to training needs and the evolution of the territorial pandemic framework “, he explains.
“Contact sport at an amateur level remains prohibited and competitions in basic amateur activity are not allowed. Individual activities will be allowed, professional activity will be allowed,” he says. “Local festivals and fairs are forbidden, national and international fairs are allowed. Conventions and congresses are suspended if they are not held remotely”, he continues. “We will increase the ways to use smart working”. As for the gyms, “there was also an intense dialogue with the CTS. We have various and conflicting news: very often the protocols are respected, other times we receive news that are not respected. We will give a week to adapt the protocols and verify them respect. If this happens, there will be no reason to close the gyms. Otherwise, we will be forced to stop activities in the gyms and swimming pools “.
“We are aware that we will impose economic sacrifices on entrepreneurs who will suffer the negative effects of these measures: there is a government commitment to restore them. The strategy we are pursuing to counter this wave of contagion is not and cannot be the same as implemented in the spring. “, highlights.
