COVID-19: Moscow Mayor announced the second phase of lifting current COVID-19 restrictions.
On May 27, 2020, Moscow Mayor, Sergey Sobyanin signed Decrees №61-УМ and №62-УМ which on the one hand extend the present lockdown regime until June 14, 2020, and on the other hand ease or abolish some of the restrictions.
1. Starting June 1, 2020, Muscovites, including elder people over 65 and citizens with chronic diseases, can leave home for walks and sports.
However, the following people are not allowed to do so:
- citizens with COVID-19,
- citizens who are suspected of having a coronavirus infection or showing signs of SARS,
- people living with them,
- citizens obliged to observe the regime of self-isolation by order of the sanitary doctor (for example, after returning from abroad).
There is no need to obtain electronic pass for outdoor walking.
To prevent the risk of coronavirus infection, the mask regime will be strengthened.
People will have to wear masks and gloves in public places, grocery stores and pharmacies, in “My Documents” centers, in medical centers, in taxi and public transport. Outdoors or during sport activities, people should wear only a mask.
