The Cabinet of Ukraine submitted changes to quarantine norms regarding the spread of Delta coronavirus strain in this country. Specifically, the government imposes mandatory express anti-gene testing for those arriving to Ukraine from India, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Portugal and Russia. Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry reported that on June 25.

The new norms will take effect on July 2. The list of countries mentioned may be changed, depending on the epidemiological background.

"First of all, we're going to monitor the health conditions of those arriving from the countries where this strain is observed yet. Testing points will be established, so as to define the anti-gene of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus at the border checkpoints", said Ukraine's Chief Sanitary Doctor Ihor Kuzin.

Foreign citizens (except for those with permanent residence permission) and invidivuals without citizenship aged over 12 who arrived from these countries or stayed there for at least seven days within the last 14 days will need to take the express test. If the test result is negative, the person will be allowed to enter Ukraine.

If the test result is positive or the individual refuses to take the test, he/she cannot pass the checkpoint and enter Ukraine.
