Sobyanin introduced new restrictions due to coronavirus. 

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced the introduction of additional restrictions due to the coronavirus from November 13, 2020 to January 15, 2021. New measures are needed to break the chains of transmission of the virus and reduce the incidence, he said.

According to the mayor's decree:

Students of universities and colleges are switching to distance learning, their transport cards will be temporarily blocked. Schoolchildren and students are advised to follow the home regime.

Catering and entertainment establishments are prohibited from serving visitors from 23:00 to 6:00. The restrictions do not apply to takeaway trade and delivery. It is recommended that establishments serving citizens use the check-in system.

The maximum number of spectators in theaters, cinemas and concert halls should not exceed 25% of the hall capacity.



Sports events with spectators are permitted only with the agreement of the Department of Sports and Rospotrebnadzor.

Holding cultural, entertainment and educational events with spectators is suspended, except for official events held by the decision of the executive authorities.

The work of children's day camps, children's entertainment centers, children's rooms in shopping and entertainment centers, children's corners in catering establishments and similar places of entertainment and babysitting, provided that they are located in buildings, are suspended. Outdoor activities for children are not prohibited.

Mr. Sobyanin said that the health care system is working to the limit, and the increase in the number of cases of SARS and other seasonal diseases significantly increases the burden. According to him, the introduction of new restrictions in advance will save institutions and businesses from unnecessary expenses that may arise if events are canceled before the New Year.



“The existing measures to counter the coronavirus are becoming insufficient. Additional restrictions are required to   break the chains of transmission of the virus and reduce the incidence rate,” Sobyanin said in a statement posted on his website. He noted that a week ago, it seemed that the incidence rate had stabilized at a high, but not critical level. However, in the past few days, the rate of infection has increased. RBC, citing two sources in the Moscow government, announced the cancellation of New Year's celebrations in the capital: according to the publication, New Year's celebrations, Christmas markets and festivals will be canceled. “This year there will be no fair and carousel on Red Square,” the press service of Bosco di Ciliegi (the main shareholder of Moscow's GUM) told Forbes. At the same time, the skating rink will work - "according to the hours permitted by the mayor's office."

Earlier, the operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus reported that 5902 new cases of infection were detected in Moscow over the past day, the day before the daily increase in cases amounted to 6897 people - an anti-record since the beginning of the pandemic. In Russia, per day, according to the headquarters, 20,977 people were infected with COVID-19, the total number of cases reached 1,817,109.
