It is important for us to ensure that you receive proper information on how La Mugletta has prepared to handle the special situation due to the CoronaVirus.
This is also to remind you that La Mugletta is safely located inside a large park and has direct access to many walking and cycling trails and tracks - social distancing is made really easy!
Based on federal and regional recommendations and dispositions, La Mugletta has adapted its procedures and processes in regard to prevention, desinfection and information. We have produced a short document containing the main recommendations for our guests - please see the below pdf file. If you wish to receive the file in a language other than English, please let us know.
La Mugletta is located in an approximately 6,000 square meter park and, given that it has only 3 guestroons, its very spacious Salotto and the large panoramic terrace offer plenty of space to ensure that prescribed and desired distances may be maintained at al moments. At the entrance to the building, in the hallway to the guest rooms and in the salotto, disinfectant gel is available and proper usage is encouraged. In each room the guest will find disinfectant gel for use during the stay at La Mugletta, washable organic cotton nose-mouth masks are available upon request as are one way gloves.
While La Mugletta's staff's face is partially covered by a nose-mouth mask, we continue to greet and treat our guests with our genuine friendliness and smile!
The government measures aim to balance containment of the pandemic, the economical impact of the measures and the individual needs. We are still encouraged to move as little as possible and therefore several restrictions are still in force. As most European countries Italy is now facing the "3rd wave" and after having been stable for some tome, new infection numbers are slowly increasing again. Italy is - as many other countries - counting on a succesfull vacination effort and is currently focusing not only on the elederly but also on hospital personnel and teachers.
Italy has adopted a regional color scheme with clear rules of what is permitted and not according to the color a region finds itself in. Below you find a PDF with the main rules, detailing what businesses are open or closed in function of the colors. Be informed that at the moment every Friday the Federal Health Ministry assesses the status of each region and eventually assigns it to a new "color" zone.
As many other countries, also Italy is currently seeing an increase in the daily incidence rate which is resulting in application of stricter protection measures while vaccination efforts are well underway.
As of Monday March 15th, 2021 VENETO is in the RED zone most lilkey through the Easter weekend. This means that now bars and restaurants are open for TAKE-OUT ('til 10pm) and DELIVERY only. La Mugletta is glad to recommend several excellent take-away solutions for your dinner and lunch. The use of our kitchen is to be agreed with us. Museums and exhibitions will be closed again. All other businesses with the exception to food stores and business with life necessities, will be closed.
Note that as per the currently valid decree the entire Easter weekend, i.e. April 4, 5 and 6 all of Italy is in the red zone with a strict lock-down.
In Italy a curfew from 10pm through 5am applies - no movement without due reason. Due reasons are: going to and from work, health reason, returning home, other urgent necessities.
As in the entire country everybody is asked to have a mask with them at all times. Inside any space which is publically accessible (businesses, bars, restaurants, museums, hotels, etc.) a mask covering from below the chin to above the nose has to be worn. Furhter in any open, publically accessible space, i.e. outside private gardens or parks, a mask has to be worn at all times as well. Exceptions are:
If you are in an open public space by yourself or with only family members
If you are performing physical activity (other than walking), like physical work or sport
If you are alone in the car or with only family members
If you are riding a bycicle or a motocycle
If you are consuming food or beverages while sitting at a table
If you are smoking, eating or drinking also while standing/walking
Fines for not following these rules may vary from EUR 400 to EUR 1'000. You should also have either disposable gloves or a disinfectant handy. In all shops and markets there are requirements to prevent possible infection and here too “social distancing” and mask requirements apply, disinfecting gel is available at the entrance of basically all commercial activities.
Capacity of all public transport means is cut by 50% to avoid crowding.
Italy is processing a high number of tests every day (more than 350'000) and has a positive rate of about 5%-7%. As in most other European countries new positive cases are being traced and focus spots managed accordingly.
In general we can say that the people in our area observe the current rules and regulations quite well. In our general area there are several clinics and laboratories where quick tests and PCR tests may be performed.
