On October 28, the recommendation of Rospotrebnadzor to tighten control of the mask regime, as well as to prohibit the work of catering and entertainment establishments at night, came into force in Russia. The corresponding resolution of the chief sanitary doctor of Russia Anna Popova posted on the official website of legal information.
Tightening restrictions were introduced against the backdrop of the spread of coronavirus infection and the seasonal increase in the incidence of respiratory infections and influenza. Rospotrebnadzor will monitor compliance with the new requirements. All who are on the territory of Russia, in particular, are ordered to observe the mask regime in “places of mass stay of people”, in public transport, taxis, “in parking lots and in elevators.”
According to the decree, from 23:00 to 06:00 it is recommended to prohibit the work of catering establishments, as well as the holding of entertainment and entertainment events. In addition, the regime for disinfecting public transport, taxis, and places of large gatherings of people: shopping facilities, catering facilities, venues for theater, cultural and other entertainment and entertainment events is being strengthened.
Popova also recommended the heads of the regions to tighten control of the mask regime, as well as to provide “restrictive measures” primarily for the coronavirus risk group – citizens over 65 years of age and people suffering from chronic diseases. In addition, the number of tests for COVID-19 will increase. They are prescribed to carry out at least 150 tests per 100 thousand people.
