Covid, too many uncertainties, in Sicily only one out of five beaches is ready to reopen

The figure emerges from a survey carried out by Cna bagnri Sicilia on a sample of 150 operators

Only 20% of Sicilian operators are working to open the bathing establishments very soon in view of the start of what was hoped to be the season of recovery but which promises to be still full of unknowns. This is the datum that emerges from a survey carried out by Cna bagnri Sicilia. Out of a sample of 150 operators, surveyed by the Confederation, four out of five say they want to start the business no earlier than June.
“The result once again underlines the climate of uncertainty that the sector experiences – say the spokesman Guglielmo Pacchione and the coordinator Gianpaolo Miceli – and all this leaves a bad taste in the mouth for some decisions taken at national level that have blocked programming, especially in the the decision to provide for a curfew at 10pm until the end of July: an aspect that has put the country at the bottom of even complex reservations from abroad “.
The second question, submitted to bathing establishments, presents the prospect of a reduction in the supply of positions connected to the necessary social distancing. Half of the operators report a reduction of seats of more than 30%. The others declare reductions of umbrellas between 10% and 20% and only one operator in 10 does not complain of reductions.
