On 27 November, ice rinks will open in most of the capital's parks. The other artificial ice rinks in various districts will follow suit on 1 December, Sergei Sobyanin said in an interview on the TV channel Russia 24.

The Moscow Mayor noted that the risk of catching COVID-19 outdoors is minimal, but large groups of people gather at ice rinks in changing rooms and at rental points.

"We did not limit the number of rinks to avoid crowds. In parks, QR code check-in will be mandatory for visitors so that we can control the flow of people and keep them within the sanitary requirements of the Moscow Department of Healthcare. As a result, there will be 30 to 40 percent less people at rental points and on the ice," said the Mayor.

Sergei Sobyanin also said that about 1,500 artificial ice rinks will be available in Moscow courtyards. Hey are to be filled in as soon as real winter comes.

"As soon as the weather allows, we will also open places for skiing," the Moscow Mayor added.

This year, the city will not hold its Journey to Christmas festival or any other large events during the New Year holidays due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, city streets and parks will be decorated with New Year trees and other decorations.
