The Italian sports car manufacturer and Formula 1 team Ferrari have announced the resumption of work under the Back on Track project.

Ferrari plans to resume work in Maranello in stages, starting April 14th. The company coordinates all actions with the authorities of the Emilia-Romagna region, as well as experts and virologists. The company decided to resume production of cars in order to reduce the economic damage from stopping production, providing a safe environment for employees.

To do this, Ferrari have developed a multi-stage plan. Initially, the factories in Maranello and Modena will operate in accordance with the recommendations of the Italian government. The next step is voluntary testing of employees so that Ferrari will get a basic picture of the health status of the staff.

At the same time, testing is also offered to family members of Ferrari employees and suppliers who do not work at Ferrari, but regularly visit the company’s factories.

The next step is the release of a mobile application that will inform Ferrari employees if they have been in contact with people who have identified a coronavirus. Such applications are actively used in Singapore, South Korea and China – automatic notifications come to smartphones to warn owners that they have come into contact with infected people.

Ferrari also provides medical and psychological assistance for employees. If someone from the staff tests for coronavirus will give a positive result, then Ferrari will help them to isolate themselves and provide the necessary medical care.
