The Executive Order signed by Enrico Rossi, Chairman of the Tuscany Region, initially involved companies that produce from “animal and plant materials” in order to prevent the deterioration of raw materials. Later, at the request of Prato Mayor Matteo Biffoni and related business people, the scope expanded to Prato's textile industry. The decision involved more than 2,000 companies, and related companies must comply with the measures stipulated by government laws and regulations. Rossi said, "The decision to allow companies to carry out maintenance work has two goals: to prevent the decay of animals and natural fabrics, and to prevent waste from polluting production sites."

In addition, Lorenzo Wang is cautious about resuming operations on May 4. "At present, the epidemic in Italy is still grim and the potential risks of resuming production and production are higher. Therefore, we recommend that the government should proceed more cautiously to resume production."
