ROME – ‘Unsustainable’ guidelines

Italian Workers’ Compensation Authority (INAIL) and the Italian Institute of Health released two guidelines with the safety measures required for reopening beaches and restaurants. However, representatives from both industries informed Economic Development Minister Stefano Patuanelli that the protocols were “unsustainable” and would cause “serious damage” to the sectors.

According to the guidelines, access to beaches should be limited and upon reservation, while sunbeds must be sanitised after every use and sunshades must be at least five meters apart.

For restaurants, buffet or similar service should be forbidden, a predetermined maximum capacity limit must be defined, and there should normally be no less than 4 square metres available for each customer. (Gerardo Fortuna |
