Corporations worldwide have implemented specialized programs or charities amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic, assisting various groups in their survival during this unprecedented period. The most recent corporation to announce a program that’ll help with limiting the spread is Ducati. They confirmed the Ducati Care Program had been imposed onto global dealerships, enforcing a series of protocols that must be met before reopening. This’ll drastically affect dealerships in the United Kingdom and Ireland, who’ve eagerly awaited opening since being closed in early March.

The updated guidelines will be applied during this period, requiring that salesman and customers keep safe distances from each other. Masks, Disinfectants, Hand Sanitizers will also be required. It’ll help ensure that the coronavirus doesn’t spread throughout Ducati’s dealerships.
Memos released by Ducati Corporate to global dealerships iterated that additional precautions will be enforced, with those still being determined. Details on the upcoming regulations weren’t confirmed by Ducati Corporate, with inside sources from dealerships indicating that showrooms will be revised and selling interests could move towards digital platforms. Ducati Corporate provided these details to global dealerships after it was announced that the Borgo Panigale Manufacturing Plant had resumed production. Increased workforces are added daily, enabling for new 2020 Motorcycle Models to be released gradually.
