Despite the relaxation of antiquated restrictions in Moscow, the requirement to wear masks and gloves remains in force. This was stated by the head of the department of trade and services Alexei Nemeryuk.
« In stores, shopping centers, transport, as well as at workplaces, you must continue to wear masks and gloves, observe social distance, » TASS quoted him as saying. According to Nemeryuk, fines are still issued for violation of the mask and glove regime.
Earlier, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, made the removal requirement recommendatory. This means that now employers will decide for themselves whether to take employees to their offices or leave them at home for now.
