The population is also writing off fines for violating covid restrictions, which have accumulated in the amount of more than $ 24 million.
TBILISI, June 30 – Sputnik. The restriction on movement, which has been in effect since November last year, has been canceled, and residents of Georgia are free to walk at night.
The population is also charged with fines for violating covid restrictions. We are talking about all fines for violation of the rules of isolation, quarantine and mask regime in the amount of 76 million lari (more than 24 million dollars).
The amount of the fine for violation of the restriction on movement at night was two thousand lari (586.5 dollars) from an individual and 10 thousand lari (2.9 thousand dollars) from a legal entity.
By the decision of the interagency coordination council, from November 9, 2020, a “curfew” was introduced in seven major cities of the country – Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, Rustavi, Zugdidi, Gori and Poti. Initially, movement was prohibited from 22:00 to 05:00. Due to the continuing increase in cases of COVID-19 infection, from November 28, the “curfew” was extended for another hour – from 21:00, making it mandatory for residents of all of Georgia.
The “curfew” was temporarily canceled three times – during the second round of parliamentary elections on November 21, 2020, on New Year’s and Christmas nights. On Easter, the restrictions were not abolished, but the time of action was reduced from 23:00 to 04:00.
The “curfew” was introduced in Georgia in the spring of 2020 along with the state of emergency. Then it operated from 21:00 to 06:00.
