The Lugano Christmas market to go ahead

The Lugano Christmas market will be there

Despite the pandemic, the traditional Christmas market will be held in Lugano this year, with increased security and control measures.

A note was released "given the cancellation of many events, the Town Hall considers it important to maintain a program that will enable the public to experience the Christmas atmosphere, albeit with restrictions".

The City took this decision on the basis of federal provisions released on coronavirus - which allows markets to be kept outdoors – along with cantonal regulations in which Christmas markets that last for more than a week are allowed to go ahead; however, there is an obligation to wear a mask and to develop and a protection plan.

"Particular attention was therefore paid to safety" the note specified. The City has drawn up a much more restrictive protection plan than the current rules issued by the Swiss Market Association. Instead of a spacing of at least 0.5 meters between the stations, the structures in Piazza Manzoni will be in a restricted access area (maximum 90 people) with a minimum spacing of 4.5 meters, which becomes 6 meters in other places in the city. A waiting area will also be marked for customers 2 meters from the houses, enabling an orderly flow.

The perimeter of the Christmas market has also been reorganized: some stations will be located in Contrada di Verla, Piazzetta della Posta and in other places where the space meets the needs.
