The first small opening has arrived on the last day of March to be able to walk (not much and close to home) with children, especially with the arrival of summer.
Minors can take a walk with one of their parents near their home. This is what is clarified by a circular from the Viminale sent to the prefects, specifying that near the houses you can walk with your children and jog alone.
In any case, all movements remain “subject to the general prohibition of gathering and the obligation to respect the minimum safety distance of one meter from any other person”.
To avoid interpretations that are too restrictive, as has often happened in recent days, also with regard to individual sporting activities, the circular states that “these indications are extended to the police forces who are daily engaged in the search for the right balance between careful vigilance on correct observance of the measures and the reasonable verification of individual cases “.
The new circular comes after numerous appeals from families and experts to allow children to go out, albeit with due precautions and limitations. In a joint statement from the ministries of Health and Family and Equal Opportunities, in fact, “the opportunity to pay particular attention to the safe physical activity of children in light of the extension of the restrictive measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus in Italy” is mentioned. With this in mind, the goal “is to allow all subjects in developmental age, that is minors aged 0-18, to be able to carry out motor and play activities in the open air, but always accompanied by a family member, in compliance with social distancing, with an adult / minor ratio of 1: 1, unless they are siblings or minors living in the same home. In this case the adult / minor ratio may be 1: n ( n = number of siblings or cohabitants),
