“We do not plan to close the transport at the moment, our goal is to protect people without interfering in the economy,” the head of government stressed.
Vaccination certificates will not be required for passengers on public transport.
“Of course, it is impractical to demand certificates in public transport. How can you demand certificates from passengers when there is a large flow at rush hour in the subway?”, Shmygal explained.
At the same time, the government will demand drivers and transport workers to be vaccinated.
“We will demand vaccination of drivers and transport workers, i.e., here the approach will be fair and the same – working teams must be vaccinated. In the yellow zone at least one dose, in the red zone two doses of vaccine. Masked regime and social distancing will remain for passengers,” Shmygal explained.
As it was reported earlier, Health Minister announced conditions for work of facilities in lockdown. The changes adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of the quarantine rules allow creating the terms for work of business in case of the lockdown.
