Green light from Palazzo Chigi to the new Dpcm which will come into affect from 26 October until 24 November. Confirmed the closure of bars and restaurants from 6 pm, with the concession of opening for holidays and Sundays

The closure of bars and restaurants from 6pm has remained a fixed point for the government in the new Dpcm signed by the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte for the Coronavirus emergency. From the summit at Palazzo Chigi, which ended late at night, the meeting between Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, the party heads of delegation and the Minister for Regional Affairs Francesco Boccia fixed a line under which the government had no intention of going into close negotiations. Governors, who were beating their fists for a closure at 11pm.

Activities that will suffer limitations, from catering to sports facilities, passing through those of the show, the government is evaluating  measures from 1.5 to 2 billion euros. A point on which the governors had fought until the last summit.

 

Recommendations: No guests in the house and unnecessary travels:

In the latest draft circulated on the new Dpcm, which should be in affect on Monday, 26 October until 24 November, the government aims above all to reiterate a series of recommendations on daily life. Starting with the rules to stay at home order, where it is recommended not to have guests. If it cannot be avoided, whether for work or emergency reasons: “a mask is strongly recommended even at homes”.

Another important chapter is that of travel, with a strong recommendation to avoid those outside your municipality, if not for proven reasons of work, study and health. As regards the school, face-to-face teaching is confirmed for elementary and middle schools, but distance teaching “at least” is increased to 75% for high schools.

 

The measures: Stops parties, gyms and fairs. Limits for meals away from home:

For bars and restaurants, therefore, the opening is scheduled from 5 to 18, with table service for up to four people. Takeaway and home delivery is allowed until midnight. It is therefore forbidden to consume food and drinks in the premises and in the vicinity after 6 pm. Although religious ceremonies, such as baptisms and weddings, are not stopped, they are prohibited, thus eliminating the limit of 30 participants in force with the previous Dpcm.

All sports facilities stop, from gyms to swimming pools, but with them also cinemas and theaters. On this point, the governors ask that at least the ski resorts that are just starting the season be excluded.
