Adaptive quarantine is returning on February 22. The corresponding decision was made by the Cabinet.

"Like last time, four levels of epidemic danger are assumed, each of which has clear limitations and criteria for determining. I emphasize that the decision will come into force next week, so all Ukrainians will be able to familiarize themselves with it in advance," Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.

Restrictions of adaptive quarantine

Adaptive Quarantine starts on February 24. From February 18, sports matches with fans are allowed.

In total, we recall that according to the rules of the Ukrainian adaptive quarantine, the country is divided into four "colored" zones, depending on the situation with the Covid-19 patients: red, orange, yellow, and green.

However, according to representative of the Cabinet in the Verkhovna Rada Vasyl Mokan, the "yellow" zone would operate throughout the country, which would smoothly turn into "orange" if the situation worsens, or "green" if the situation improves.
