With effect from Tuesday, the Moscow city administration has lifted the mask requirement in public spaces and means of transport and has omitted other regulations. This is justified with a “stable improvement in the epidemiological situation”.
Starting tomorrow, masks will no longer have to be worn in Moscow, even in shops or transport. The Mayor of the Russian capital, Sergei Sobyanin, has lifted the requirement to wear masks in public areas, effective March 15.
In addition, as of March 15, all anti-corona measures at the workplace, such as regular measurements of employees’ body temperature, the installation of partition walls at workplaces and others, will also be eliminated.
In his personal blog Sobyanin justifies the decisions made with the “stable improvement in the epidemiological situation”.
As a result, Moscow is largely returning to normal when it comes to the corona virus. Other restrictions had previously been abolished. Since February 28, pensioners have been able to use public transport free of charge again. From February 6, the quarantine obligation after contact with infected people was no longer required throughout Russia. Compulsory testing and restrictions on trade, gastronomy and events were relaxed even earlier.
