Below Deck Sailing Yacht's Paget and Ciara Are Working on a Boat in Italy Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak
"Current routine is work, washing hands, work, washing hands, work," Paget Berry said.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht's Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan are currently still working in the Mediterranean in Italy while the country remains on lockdown to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Paget shared in a post on Instagram on March 14 that he and Ciara are still working on a boat in Italy, the site of Europe's worst coronavirus outbreak. "Unfortunately Ciara and I are not in quarantine in Bali Indonesia, but we are currently working in Italy on a boat where the Coronavirus has hit the hardest in Europe so far. Everything is in lockdown, bars, restaurants, gyms, you name it, it’s shut!" Paget said in a post that featured a throwback photo of the pair vacationing in Bali. "Current routine is work, washing hands, work, washing hands, work, you get the point! So don’t be selfish and get back in your house."
Ciara also reminisced about their past trip to Bali on Instagram, sharing that she's thankful to be "able to continue working and keep myself preoccupied." She also encouraged her followers to "#staypositive."
Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on March 19 that the national lockdown would be extended beyond its original April 3 end date, according to CNBC. The lockdown first went into effect on March 10, instructing citizens to only leave home to get food or medicines, with grocery stores and pharmacies the only businesses remaining open, or to perform other essential services or go to work.
Nearly 36,000 people have tested positive for coronavirus with nearly 3,000 deaths from the disease reported in the country as of March 18.
