In Ukraine, aboveground public transport will start to work after May 22 with restriction: with the observation of mask requirement, temperature screening, disinfection as TSN reported citing Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Vladyslav Krykliy.
“The whole transport will work…within the new reality. In other words, mask requirement, obligatory temperature screening in crowded places, constant disinfection,” Krykliy stated.
The precise date of the opening of the underground in the Ukrainian cities is unknown. It is harder to control the number of passengers in the underground.
“It will be difficult in the underground to control how many people entered the metro coach. To organize the process of check and such important necessary control, it will take a particular time and organization. That is why, nobody is ready for 22 May,” the minister explained.
Earlier, Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko stated that public transport will be working with certain restrictions at least until May 22.
As we reported, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers intends to extend the lockdown in Ukraine until May 22. However, some easing is expected. So, that is what should be expected to start from May 11: the opening of parks, squares, recreation areas, beauty salons, summer venues of food establishments, libraries, museums.
