There is a strategy. The Prime Minister Useuzepe Conte he started talking about it with other European leaders. And Brussels on December 2 is expected to dictate joint guidelines for the season on the slopes of science in Europe and for Christmas. Because without a common position of European countries to reopen or, more likely, to stop skiing, there is a real risk of disorder if a common line between EU countries is missing. “With Merkel e Macron “We are working for a European protocol,” Conte announced. For its part, France will decide in the next 10 days “in order to be as consistent as possible with our neighboring countries,” Palazzo Matignon said.
The emergency tourism for the European Commission is at the top of the list of concerns about the evolution of economic activity, such as the transport and hospitality sectors. However, in these days of approaching the holidays of Christmas e New Year the need to exclude second wave на pandemic without creating the conditions for the release of the third party, any hasty explanation of the possibility of changing the coordination framework for measures restricting freedom of movement in the EU is limited.
Prime Minister Conte said he had spoken with EU President Michelle yesterday, pointing to the need to “coordinate” European-level decisions on the ski season at this stage. In addition to coordination, Conte said, are German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.
Conte, Dpkm: “We are trying to open schools before Christmas. “There are no holidays in the snow.”
Ski, here is the proposal of the regions to open the lifts safely
Of course, tourist flows during the holidays will remain subject to the rules of restraint and travel, for which individual states remain competent, and this actually restricts the movement of people in cities as in the mountains. Nor is Brussels in any way involved, especially for the “white weeks” reopening chapter, which has obvious pressure from tour operators, the hotel and the hospitality system to boost inflows.
Within ten days, the French government will decide whether to open the ski resorts: the problem is not easy because Upper Savoy, for example, has the highest infection rate in the country. The regions of Northern Italy are demanding clear rules for opening lifts, including halving the number of cable cars and gondola lifts, maximum ski-to-ceiling ceilings, and lifts closed in red areas.
So far, the plants are mostly closed in Italy, France and Austria. Switzerland, on the other hand, invites skiers as the ski resorts submit safeguards to the various cantons they must approve, according to the federal health office.
The situation is not clear and will not be clear for a long time. On 2 December, the European Commission will issue a new recommendation to EU Member States on the general guidelines to be followed in each country ‘s decisions on organizing movements during the holidays. Of course, the recommendation will not address the purely economic aspects of the question: someone is talking about inevitable competitive disadvantages, if you ski on one side and on the other, but here is the starting point (or should be) the epidemiological situation.
The Commission’s reference framework remains a coordinated approach to EU action measures: there are currently no restrictions in the ‘green’ regions (14 days in the previous week there was a lower positive test rate of 4% and less than 25 Covid-19 cases for every hundred thousand inhabitants); when moving from an orange or red zone, governments may request to be tested or quarantined. The area is orange if the positive test rate is equal to or greater than 4% but there are less than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or if the number of cases is between 25 and 150 per 100,000 inhabitants; it is red if the positive rate is equal to or greater than 4%, but the number of cases is equal to or greater than 50 or there are more than 150 cases, always per hundred thousand inhabitants.
There are five basic principles: you can move from the “green” regions without any restrictions; is always allowed to return to his own Member State of citizenship or residence; citizens must not be discriminated against; measures to restrict free movement must be proportionate, but in general, entry should not be refused; if they travel for the performance of basic functions or for basic needs, citizens will not be required to quarantine.
