In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19
, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so
must be kept - and a face mask
(better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, though bars, restaurants, shops and even museums began reopening from June 3
. Schools started again on September 14. Finger crossed.
