Flights to/from Corona risk areas

Hi everybody, Ive been reading threads in PPRuNe for quite a while but now due to the current situation I want to start a thread myself.
We, commercial German bizjet operator, do outbound flights from Corona risk areas with PAX such as Italy. Initially, we required a negative Corona test from the PAX but those tests are not really available in those regions so we stopped that. Latest precautionary measures instead are now that crew and PAX all wear masks for those flights. How do you handle these kinds of flights, what are your procedures?

We flew in the beginning in FFP3 respirators, but it's very warm/hot, not comfortable at all for longer flights and you basically cannot even drink water - otherwise using FFP3 doesn't make sense at all. So we started to fly in usual masks and our medical uniform, which we put to the washer after each flight. We also stopped doing any service for passengers during the flight (like opening bottle of wine, serving food and etc). All passengers are required to have masks as well, plus after each flight we fully desinfect the plane.

This is a quick Google translate from today's La Provence..

"Marseille-Provence airport had a funny surprise last Saturday. A private jet bringing ten wealthy Londoners intending to have a good time in Cannes (Alpes-Maritimes) had just landed on the tarmac. Confinement obliges, the "vacationers" were turned back.

On board this aircraft, rented by a Croatian claiming to work in the field of finance and real estate, seven men from 40 to 50 years and three women from 23 to 25 years: "They came in vacation, for a stay in Cannes and three helicopters were waiting for them on the tarmac, "the head of the border police service at Marignane told AFP on Thursday. "But we told them that they were not admitted to the national territory and they left four hours later."

If the pilots of the helicopters were fined for breach of confinement, the ten travelers from London, of Romanian, French, German and Ukrainian nationality, were only forced to turn around, not being legally on French soil".
