Video: Italy Comes Out Of 10-week Quarantine
Italy became the first European country to impose strict quarantines. The local population lived in this mode for 10 weeks.
From today on, the country has practically returned to normal life. On May 4, parks were opened and production resumed, and from May 18, all shops, shopping centers, bars, restaurants, beauty salons and hairdressers began to work.
The country has now entered the second phase of lifting the quarantine. However, protective masks in public places and transport remain mandatory. In cafes, restaurants and bars, of course, you don't have to wear masks. Service staff must maintain a distance of at least one meter from visitors, while it is recommended to keep lists of guests of the establishment for at least two weeks.
Stores and malls also require social distancing, and employees will be careful to ensure that the number of customers inside the premises does not exceed the permissible limits. In malls, entertainment centers are still closed.
In the field of beauty, saunas and hot tubs are prohibited, as well as any beauty treatments using steam. Italians began to enroll in salons en masse: and now all establishments can work until midnight, as well as on Mondays, which usually remained days off for hairdressers.
