Russia lifts quarantine restrictions, including mask regime

Since July 1, all previously imposed restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic have been lifted in the Russian Federation, including the mask regime, Interfax reports with reference to Rospotrebnadzor.

“Due to the ongoing decrease in the intensity of the epidemiological process, Rospotrebnadzor suspends the previously imposed restrictions, including the mask regime, a ban on catering at night and a number of other measures,” the press service of Rospotrebnadzor said.

At the same time, Rospotrebnadzor emphasized that if the situation with COVID-19 worsens, “the restrictive measures can be resumed.” Anti-epidemic measures are also maintained for the timely detection of cases and measures to ensure monitoring of the epidemic process.

The actions of the Russian authorities to lift quarantine measures are generally consistent with global practice. Despite the seventh wave of the coronavirus epidemic, in many countries of the world, including Israel, quarantine measures have been reduced to a minimum, wearing protective masks is recommended, but not required.
