Event

The strike is taking place as the unions disagree with the current capacity of children allowed on school busses amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The current capacity on school busses allows a maximum of 80 children, however, the USB union are protesting that this number is still too dangerous due to the COVID-19.

Advice

Individuals in Rome are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, monitor developments, anticipate transportation and business disruptions near protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities. Those planning on utilizing alternative overland transportation methods during the strike period should also be aware of a surge in demand for these services.
