The reason is the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Ukraine
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has prolonged adaptive quarantine until 31 July,
as the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, wrote in his Telegram channel.
“Due to the growing number of patients with coronavirus infection, we continue the effect of adaptive quarantine in Ukraine until 31 July this year,” said Mr Shmyhal at the meeting of the Government on Wednesday, 17 June.
In particular, during the adaptive quarantine it is forbidden:
- not to use personal protective equipment while being in public places or in transport;
- carry passengers more than the seating capacity of vehicles allows.
According to the Prime Minister, if necessary, the Government may consider a possibility of strengthening quarantine in particular regions of Ukraine.
Strengthened quarantine may be expanded to cover:
- cultural, sports religious and other public events;
- operation of accommodation service providers;
- operation of subways;
- all means of passenger transport;
- attendance of pre-school education institutions;
- operation of cultural institutions, health and fitness centers and gym halls;
- operation of public facilities.
As reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers had extended the quarantine restrictions until 22 June 2020. At its meeting on 4 May, the Government had eased some quarantine restrictions with effect since 11 May.
