Meanwhile, quarantine in Ukraine is planned to be extended until April 30, 2021.

"We have already developed a normative act that will regulate quarantine restrictions in Ukraine. The quarantine is planned to be extended until April 30. The restrictions are planned to be eased," he said.

In particular, it is planned to:

  • extend the opening hours of public catering;
  • allow events with 50% occupancy of the halls (no more than one person per 5 square meters).

At the same time, Stepanov said that strict quarantine restrictions can be introduced in a certain region. For their introduction, it will be determined if two criteria simultaneously exceed the established norms.
