Lusita Golf Course, a resort in central Italy, is opening to nonresidents on Monday.
It is a first in the country, and has been a focus of concern for residents, who fear the risk of contamination from the nearby Lusitea river.
It has been an issue for many locals, including Giancarlo, who has been on a daily trek up the slopes of Lusitu’s mountain side.
He says it is difficult to find a spot for his dogs to play.
“We have never had any problems, because we are not affected by the river,” Giancarli said.
Lusitoa is a popular destination for locals who enjoy the mountains, which have been linked to the disease, and locals have complained of increased health problems.
There have been reports of skin lesions, headaches and a few cases of gastroenteritis.
There are also reports of infections in the area, but no deaths.
Luscana, the country’s largest municipality, says there have been three deaths related to the virus.
Lussitania has been closed since the virus arrived in Italy.
There is a lot of concern in the town that there could be a repeat of what happened in 2016 when a small area of Luscano, the region with the most cases, was closed due to a lack of space.
