Given the Prime Ministerial Decree of 7 March 2020 which applies to the Lombardy Region the ban on gatherings and for bars and restaurants the obligation to respect an interpersonal distance of at least 1 meter between people in places open to the public (in addition to other medical facilities); Old Fashion, not recognizing that it can guarantee – currently – these conditions, refrains from opening its premises to the public in order to encourage as much as possible the restoration of the ideal health conditions for the protection of Public Health. It also reserves the right to review its decision in the face of future developments.
