Italy published a new decree1 on 14 July extending until 31 July 2020 the current measures in force that are intended to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus and help prevent its spread. This new decree confirms the validity of existing statutory provisions and underscores the necessity of continuing to limit trips to help contain COVID-19.
National authorities are still focused on the pandemic and are taking a slow, gradual, phased approach to reopening of the country. This is one of the reasons why quarantine is still in force for people coming from non-European Union (EU) countries (with some exceptions) and an extensive travel ban remains in place.
Measures prohibiting group gatherings, advising people to keep 1.5 meters apart, and gradual re-opening of places of business, remain in place so as to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. However, efforts to introduce greater flexibility regarding travel demonstrate initial steps toward a re-opening of Italy’s borders and boosting its economy in the near future.
Until such time as the government decides it is safe to rescind, or in a bigger way roll-back current travel restrictions, many multinational organisations may wish to continue, where feasible, with remote working by their as a way for them to foster the safety of their employees and help ensure business continuity.
