■ Rearrange the spaces, to ensure access in an orderly way, in order to avoid gatherings of people. For the sole purpose of defining the maximum capacity of the room, guarantee at least 1 meter between users and at least 2 meters between users who access the dance floor. If possible, organize separate routes for entry and exit.

■ Before entering the workplace, the body temperature of the staff must be measured and, if higher than 37.5 °, the worker will not be allowed to enter or remain in the workplace and will therefore be temporarily isolated from related reporting to the ATS responsible for the area. Similarly, we will take action if during the activity the worker should manifest the symptoms of respiratory infection with COVID-19 (e.g. fever, cough, cold, conjunctivitis).
Body temperature detection is also highly recommended for customers. For detailed provisions, please refer to the provisions of paragraph 1.3 of the Ordinance.

■ Tables and seats must be arranged in such a way as to ensure that at least 1 meter of separation between customers is maintained, except for people who are not subject to interpersonal distancing according to the provisions in force. This last aspect belongs to individual responsibility. This distance can only be reduced by resorting to physical barriers between the different tables that are suitable for preventing contagion through a droplet.
■ Any items supplied to users (eg bottle openers, ice buckets, etc.) must be disinfected before delivery.
■ Promote the exchange of air indoors. Due to the overcrowding and the residence time of the occupants, the effectiveness of the systems must be verified in order to ensure the adequacy of the external air flow rates according to current regulations. In any case, the crowding must be related to the actual external air flow rates. For air conditioning systems, it is mandatory, if technically possible, to totally exclude the air recirculation function. In any case, the measures for the exchange of natural air and / or through the system must be further strengthened, and the cleaning, with the system stopped, of the recirculating air filters to maintain adequate filtration / removal levels must be guaranteed. If technically possible, the filtering capacity of the recirculation must be increased, replacing the existing filters with higher class filters, ensuring the maintenance of the flow rates.

How does entry to the venue work?

General rules for access to venue – Rules and company rules

The admission to Old fashion is regulated by the law 94 of 15 July 2009 art 3., from the Cod.Pen. ex art. 689 and 691, ex art 7 del DL 158/2012 ,ex  D.M.19 August 1996, by  Protocol of Intents signed with the Prefecture of Milano and by the Company Rules ( as foreseen by Leg.94 15/07/09 art 3 ) that guarantee to the management the door policy at its sole discretion , anyway the most frequent causes of denial of access are listed below, which are intended as a pure example and do not reduce the discretionary power of the personnel in charge of entry.

Access is strictly prohibited:

  • under the age of 18 ( ex art. 7 del DL 158/2012 )
  • people in a state of alcoholic intoxication*
  • individuals for whom is suspect the use or sale of drugs
  • all those who have an aggressive attitude or that have been previously involved in acts of violence.
  • poor personal hygiene
  • a clothing is not consonant with the standard of the club may result refused
  • If the Club has reached the capacity limit as per D.M.19 August 1996 (and related laws)
  • Also refused banchelor party , as well as access to venue is reserved for people coupled or in heterogeneous groups.
  • Vulgarity, racism or intransigence will be solved with the access refused or removal from the club.

*At the entrance to the premises, the staff is equipped with an alcohol meter and can invite customers to undergo a test alcohol.  In case of refusal this will be considered as a lack of requirement for access to the premises

Warning:
Fight against  sale of drugs:
in case of people caught in flagrancy of crime,  management  will provide immediate reporting to the police authorities.
Anyone who is responsible or involved in events that may lead the Milan Police Headquarters to apply the suspension of the license and consequent closure of the premises pursuant to ex Art. 100 of  TULPS will be prosecuted by Old Fashion s.r.l. in order to obtain compensation for damages incurred.

Why do I have to go through a metal detector at the entrance?

Cause  international situation, since November 2015, Old Fashion has adopted a control policy at the entrance of the premises by means of metal detectors managed by personnel authorized by the Prefecture.
A visual verification of the contents of bags and backpacks is also carried out and the latter are mandatory to be deposited in the wardrobe.
The introduction of gas cylinders for personal defense is not allowed: these products must be delivered to the security staff who will keep them for the entire duration of the evening and return them to the customer (as long as they are products certified by the Ministry of the Interior).
Any type of instrument capable of attack will be retained by the staff and reported to the police.

Why is it no longer allowed to temporarily leave the venue?

This protocol has been active since December 2018; the reason – unfortunately – depends on the fatal events of Corinaldo ( Ancona, italy ) when 6 people perished ( Disco Lanterna Azzurra ).
Since then, the Prefecture of Milan has issued a note in which it recommends that the capacity of the premises be respected as per DM 19 August 1996 (which establishes the criteria with which the Supervisory Commissions release the capacity, that is, the number of people who can be present simultaneously in a room).
To comply with this requirement, Old Fashion security staff are equipped with a “people counter” that progresses with turnout and decreases with the exit of people.
It follows that, to be sure that the counting is accurate ( and  security standard is thus respected), we cannot temporarily let customers leave, because we cannot ensure the safety of the same, risking to exceed the legal number with dangerous repercussions both legal and – obviously – safety.
In the event of a customer leaving the premises, upon returning, the payment of the entrance fee will be required. This is true even if the customer has left his garments in the wardrobe custody.
Any new entrance to the room is subject to reaching or not the capacity limit
