The Ukrainian government allowed the work of parks, playgrounds, beauty salons and many other establishments. Denys Shmygal, the Prime Minister of Ukraine said so, specifying that the quarantine measures will be loosened since May 11.
These changes, however, will be working only as long as counter-epidemic measures are observed.
Citizens are allowed to use:
- parks, recreation areas, forest and beachside terrains
- sports areas in streets
- takeaway services in restaurants and cafes (as long as the establishment is the operator of food market)
- open-air summer playgrounds
- benefits of trading non-food products in shops
- museums (both indoor and open-air) and conservation areas
- dentist offices
- beauty salons and barber shops
- public services establishments
- services of civil law notaries, lawyers and auditors.
Media organizations will get back to work with previous restrictions being lifted, too.
The use of underground, suburban and and interregional transport, education establishments, theaters and cinemas, as well as gyms and food courts in shopping malls is still unavailable for Ukrainian citizens. Any movement in groups of more than two people is banned, too; so, mass events are prohibited as well. Citizens must wear protection masks or respirators and carry their IDs with them.
Previously, the Cabinet extended the quarantine until May 22, making a promise that certain restrictions will be lifted on May 11.
