Home isolation regime is introduced for all the residents of Moscow regardless of their age. The relevant amendments have been made to the decree of the Moscow Mayor. You can leave or enter Moscow freely. These steps aim at reduction of people movement in the city.

As Sergei Sobyanin writes in his blog, you can leave your apartment in the following cases:

— to seek for emergency medical care or in case of other direct threat to life and health;

— to go to work if you have to;

— to shop in the closest open shop or pharmacy;

— to walk your pet within 100 m from your place of residence (stay);

— to take out garbage.

The similar measures are also introduced in the Moscow suburbs.

“Very soon, after technical and organizational measures are implemented, it will be possible to go outside only with a special permission issued in the manner prescribed by the Government of Moscow”, said Sergei Sobyanin.

The type of special permissions, their format, procedure and method of issue will be specified in a separate act of the Moscow Government. You can move around the city without any special permissions until the act is published.

Stay at least 1.5 m away from other people in the streets, shops, public transport and other public spaces. The only exclusion is a taxi ride.

Special marks shall be in place in shops and other public places, and owners shall not allow a large number of people inside or on the surrounding grounds.

No restrictions apply to personal vehicles, administrative use vehicles or special purpose vehicles. Public transport will also operate as usual. There are no restrictions for food and goods delivery.

Moscow residents staying at home and not using public transport from 30 March to 3 April will have their travel cards extended for five days. This will cover 60-trips travel cards for 60 days, 30 days, 90 days and 365 days, and TAT tickets.

6 April is the date when you can extend you travel card. To do this, you may apply to any metro ticket office, information booth or Mosgortrans kiosk. If you have any questions you may call the Moscow Transport hotline: +7 (495) 539-54-54 or 3210 (mobile).

Moscow residents with confirmed COVID-19 in a mild form shall undergo home treatment under medical supervision. They will receive antiviral medications free of charge. Also, as a means of prevention, free antiviral medications will be provided to health care professionals and other specialists combating COVID-19.

Sergei Sobyanin added that these are necessary measures.

“In this difficult situation, to my regret, many Moscow residents may lose their job. To help them we will develop a special set of support measures. As a first step we introduce a regional compensatory payment for the unemployed. The total amount of the unemployment compensation (stipend) and the new payment will equal 19,500 rubles per month”, concluded the Moscow Mayor.

The days from 30 March to 3 April are declared as days off for most Russians to stay at home. Moscow is on high alert. Operations of entertainment facilities, beauty salons, cafes and restaurants are suspended. Food stores, pharmacies, pet shops, delivery services, mobile shops and stores selling essential goods will be open.

Call the hotline by number +7 (495) 870-45-09 to learn how to prevent and combat COVID-19 or visit mos.ru.
