There is also a requirement to maintain a distance of at least one and a half meters, Sobyanin said.
“Many Muscovites have been using masks and gloves for several weeks now, for which many thanks to them. Other people may find this requirement as another unpleasant limitation. But in reality it is not so. By demanding the mandatory use of protective equipment, we are not increasing restrictions, but on the contrary, we are taking a huge step towards returning to ordinary life, "wrote Sergei Sobyanin.
At the same time, the work of enterprises and construction sites must be organized in accordance with the stringent requirements of the sanitary and epidemiological regime, the mayor added.
“In the current conditions, this is the least dangerous. Unlike trade and service workers, builders and employees of industrial enterprises practically do not contact consumers. It is much easier to ensure a proper sanitary and epidemiological regime in relatively closed workspaces - at construction sites and in production shops,”explained Sergei Sobyanin, stressing that when enterprises open, the congestion of public transport will increase and it will become more difficult to maintain social distance.
The head of the capital noted that only those workers whose presence in workshops, offices and construction sites is necessary for technological reasons will be able to return to their jobs. Anyone who can work remotely should still stay at home.
Grocery stores, pharmacies, pet stores, delivery services, communication salons and non-food stores where you can buy essential goods will work as usual. In addition, non-stationary retail facilities will open on the territory of the Moscow metro. It will be possible to purchase personal protective equipment there.
Digital passes for travel to work, which expired on May 11, will continue to be valid until May 31. Additionally, you do not need to provide passport data, mobile phone number, email address and other information. An exception is made only for those cases when such data has changed and requires updating.
The procedure for issuing digital passes for one-time trips remains the same. They can be obtained twice a week, and daily for travel to medical institutions and volunteer activities.
Traveling around Moscow by personal or official transport, which is not included in the register, is now not allowed. The owners of the cars will be held administratively liable for this violation. You can check if the car is included in the register online.
In addition, the restrictions for schoolchildren have been extended: from May 18 to May 31, students will study remotely in free attendance mode to review and consolidate the material. Annual grades for the 2019/2020 academic year will be posted no later than May 15th. Students in grades 9 and 11 will continue their distance learning until the end of May. The format and timing of the exams will be announced later. Small duty groups at the primary school will continue to work until May 31st.
“During the rest of the holidays, it is very important to comply with the requirements of self-isolation, as well as get used to the idea of the need to use protective masks and gloves. The more successfully the first stage of easing the forced restrictions is implemented, the more likely it is that in a short time we will be able to move on to the second and subsequent stages. And the stricter we comply with the established requirements, the more we take care of and take care of each other, the more opportunities we will have to organize a normal city life even in conditions of long-term restrictions,”concluded the mayor.
