PHASE 2: NEW ORDINANCE REGARDING REOPENING IN PIEDMONT

The President of the Piedmont Region, Alberto Cirio, signed ordinance number 64 of May 27th, which states that from Friday May 29th until midnight on Tuesday June 2nd, except for different regulations established by the Mayors relating to their own municipal territory, there is the obligation to wear a mask in all outdoor public places within the regional territory, but only in residential areas and in shopping areas.

The obligation does not apply to children under the age of six, to people with disabilities or with pathologies not compatible with the continuous use of personal protective equipment. It will also not be mandatory to wear a mask while practicing sports and motor activities.

On the other hand, regarding restaurant activities, the regulations established in the guidelines of the national Protocol signed between the Regions and the Government continue to be valid in public food service activities. Therefore, wearing a mask is not mandatory for those who are sitting at tables, whether inside the premises or in outdoor areas.


Ordinance of the Mayor: suspension of alcohol sales from 7pm
On May 28-29-30, the sale of alcohol is suspended starting at 7pm.
The businesses selling alcohol (as well as other types of activities indicated in the ordinance) must close at 1 am the following day. The areas concerned and the additional measures foreseen can be consulted in trade union ordinance no. 65.

 

There are two additions to the new ordinance issued by President Alberto Cirio in force from May 23rd to June 14th:
 

- obligation to wear a mask on all premises of the shopping centers, including parking lots and play areas;
 

- latest closing time for cafés and restaurants is one o’clock in the morning, leaving the Mayor the possibility to introduce further restrictions or particular procedures of administration (as done by the Municipality of Turin) if the need to do so arises so as to avoid the creation of crowds.
 

The ordinance continues with the regulations contained in the one issued on May 18, cited hereafter.
