The company mentioned that the use of smart working will remain mandatory and only the ones who are not able to carry out work from home will be asked to access the production site. Moreover, all the resources employed in the marketing, personnel, finance, logistics, commercial, IT, management, and purchasing, will continue working remotely.

"We are ready to go, we have worked hard over the past few weeks to minimize any risk," said Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO.

He added, "Despite this we will have to be extremely cautious and rigorous. The virus is still in circulation and we must therefore be careful to combat any possible form of transmission. This is the reason why all the people present in the factory will wear masks, we must protect the population from the presence of asymptomatic positives who, although in a very small percentage, are present today and will not be identified by the mandatory temperature test."

The previous shifts have been reorganized, from earlier an eight-hour shift to now two seven-hour shifts, in order to allow lesser number of people to go inside the plant at once.

While designers and project managers will work remotely, technicians and engineers engaged in Research and Development activities who are critical for developments of new motorcycles are already at work as allowed by the specific ATECO code.
