According to the decree, the strengthening of anti-epidemic measures is applied and stopped on the territory of the region on the basis of the decision of the regional commission on technogenic and ecological safety and emergency situations, which is adopted on the proposal of the chief state sanitary doctor of the region.

It is also reported that the transition of a region from one to another zone is possible provided that for five days in a row there are changes in one of the certain indicators. Restrictions will apply at all levels, including green.

All schools will open in Ukraine from September 1, 2020, but if the epidemiological situation in the region does not meet the requirements of the Ministry of Health, educational institutions will be quarantined. Schools will be closed only in areas of the "red zone" where the incidence rate is high.

In addition, a gradual involvement of spectators in football matches will begin in Ukraine, subject to a number of quarantine requirements. The main requirements are:

  • filling the sectors of the stadium with spectators by no more than 25%;
  • observance of social distance;
  • ensuring the availability of disinfectants in stadiums;
  • thermoscreening at the entrance.
