Regions push to reopen, perhaps from 18 visits to friends too – Politics

With the opening of shops, bars and restaurants scheduled for May 18th the constraint that allows travel only to visit relatives could be eliminated (as well as for necessity, work and health reasons). It is one of the hypotheses on which, according to when we learn, the majority and the government are discussing. On the issue, which would in fact allow friends to be able to go to the restaurant or bar, there is still no agreement, with some ministers who would push for the bond to remain.

On the reopening of bars, shops, restaurants, beauticians, hairdressers in Lombardy “by Thursday I think I will give a positive or negative answer”. The governor of Lombardy said so Attilio Fontana, at Mattino Cinque commenting on the agreement between the Government and the Regions for the differentiated reopenings. “From 18 May the shops will reopen by the Government’s choice, before then we will have to receive the guidelines that must be sent by the government through the Inail – clarified Fontana -, at which point we will cross the guidelines with the epidemiological data and we will have the possibility at local level to make assessments, possibly asking to reopen some more activities “.

“It is obvious that our interest will be first of all to evaluate the conditions and numbers of the epidemic” and “before doing any evaluation I want to see the numbers: if they go as in the last 2 weeks” with a contagion “downhill and above all in a few days we will begin to see the effects of the reopening of May 4th and it was positive, I think we can think of reopening some activities, “added the governor.

“I have seen that in the new government decree there is the blocking of IRAP, a good and fair thing, but from IRAP the Regions derive a piece of their budget with which the salaries of the doctors and nurses who have paid us are also paid edited by Covid-19, if the government blocks Irap, it must give the Regions the money to pay doctors and nurses “, highlighted the president of the Liguria Region and vice president of the Conference of the Regions Giovanni Toti to Radio Capital. And then again: for the collapse of passengers in public transport during the coronavirus emergency “at least two to three billion euros are missing from the Regions net of the Special Statute Regions, we do not yet have a definitive overall figure”. Toti did not rule out that the impact of the crisis could also lead to an increase in public transport tickets. “In a world that has to travel less by car we will not be able to load all of this on citizens, an increase in tickets to keep the accounts in balance could also be there, I hope that the Government will get in hand. – hopes Toti – The real test of the TPL there hasn’t been one yet, the demand from citizens is growing cautiously. Public transport will have to be reviewed, I think of car sharing, scooters and electric bikes, perhaps in the form of sharing “.

On the reopening of interregional mobility Minister Boccia told us ‘let’s take another week before starting an evaluation’, it certainly will not reopen on 18 May, perhaps 25 May, more likely on 1 June“said the governor Giovanni Toti interviewed by Radio 24. “On May 18 the Government will suggest the reopening of the retail trade throughout the country, many Regions including Liguria will announce the reopening of hairdressers, beauticians and partly also of catering, Liguria I hope it will be among them”.

Emilia-Romagna is ready to reopen the beaches, as well as shops, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, beauticians, tattoo artists, starting from May 18th, “always respecting the safety rules”. The Region explains: in these days “the work of the technical tables called to define the safety protocols for the restart of the various activities now suspended, in compliance with the national guidelines” will end.

“I consider the comparison with the government last night to be positive. The line that I and other colleagues have proposed has passed: the government for 18 makes basic choices, standard for all, then delegates to the regions”. The governor said so Luca Zaia. “To President Conte – he added – I said: we are the watershed between order and disorder; taking the path together means order, not doing it together disorder. Our idea, if there are health conditions, is to open by on Monday everything that can be opened “.

On the next reopening in Piedmont the President of the Region Alberto Cirio and the junta “will evaluate the choice of dates after the comparison with the Ministry of Health in the coming days, in the light of the monitoring data. Based on these, the guidelines for reopening and on what rules for Piedmont will be established”. This was stated by the spokesman for Governor Cirio, in this morning’s video conference on the progress of contagion and the Region’s initiatives in the health and therapist field
