The Italian government last week extended until May 3 nationwide limits on movements and manufacturing production to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

But Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he would continue to assess daily infection trends and "act accordingly", raising expectations that some manufacturing, even though not deemed essential, could resume before May 3, provided health and safety measures were in place to protect workers.

Measures agreed with Marelli include the sanitisation of premises, providing masks to workers, temperature testing, allowing a distance of at least one metre among workers and procedures to avoid large gatherings in canteens or changing rooms, the FIM, FIOM, UILM, FISMIC, UGLM and AQCFR unions said in a joint statement.
