Luxottica to suspend production, logistics as Italy's virus toll grows

Eyewear maker Luxottica Group SpA will halt manufacturing and logistics operations in Italy for three days amid a government mandate to ensure worker safety during the coronavirus outbreak, Reuters reported March 15, citing a company statement.

The Ray-Ban maker, which merged with Essilor International SA to form EssilorLuxottica SA, will suspend productions from March 16 to 18 and resume gradually between March 18 and 19, the report said.

Logistics operations at the company's Sedico facility will also enforce a stoppage from March 16 to 17, according to the news wire.

Italy has been on a nationwide lockdown since March 9 as the country tries to contain the rapid spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Italy has the most confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths outside China, with 24,747 confirmed cases and 1,809 deaths as of March 16, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
