Yesterday, Vladimir Putin declared the next week to be a non-working week with a paycheck. The move should slow the spread of the coronavirus. In this regard, the Moscow authorities have introduced new restrictions.
"Seven days off is not a vacation, but a serious measure to prevent COVID-19," Sergei Sobyanin recalled. In his address, the mayor of Moscow said that it would be closed from March 28 to April 5. All metropolitan restaurants, cafes and bars will not work, but food can be ordered to take away. All stores, including shopping centers, with the exception of grocery stores and pharmacies, will also be closed. You will not be able to walk in parks and visit Moscow sights: VDNKh, TsPKiO im. Gorky, the Tsaritsyno and Kolomenskoye museums-reserves, the Zaryadye park, the Sokolniki recreation park, the Kuskovo estate museum.
The mayor urged to refuse to provide hairdressing services and any other where personal presence is required. “The exceptions to this rule are medical, rehabilitation services, care services for the elderly and other people in need, other social services, transportation services, banking and insurance services, housing and communal services and communications, funeral services - all of them will continue to be available, "Sobyanin's address says. He urged believers not to visit religious sites, although they will remain open. In addition, the mayor asked residents of the regions to refuse to travel to the capital.
