What is the situation in Cortina d’Ampezzo?

Cortina d’Ampezzo has started phase 2 by adopting all the necessary indoor and outdoor safety measures, namely social distancing and the use of personal devices such as face masks and disposable gloves or similar protections with regard to domestic isolation, in relation to gathering places such as means of transport, commercial establishments, economic or collective activities that grant access to third parties, sanitary and sociomedical facilities.

In public and enclosed spaces, people must maintain a 1-metre distance from everyone they interact with, always wearing a mask and practicing hand hygiene using specific hand sanitizers and/or through frequent washing.

Outdoor sport activities are allowed where a 2-metres distance from other people can be observed - without prejudice to any greater distances possibly laid down by special arrangements. Wearing a face mask is mandatory, except in the phase of activity with physical effort.

Catering services and shops capable of guaranteeing the safety measures listed in the regional ordinance are open.

Public events and demonstrations are still prohibited, until further regional and national indications are laid out.

Guided excursions are allowed as far as the abovementioned safety measures are respected.

 

Can I use local public transport?

Local public transport is functioning. Please note that the front entrance of the buses will be closed to avoid as much as possible contacts between passengers and drivers. Once on board, passengers will be asked to tear their ticket to validate it, to avoid contact with the driver.
