Cabinet of Ministers prolongs adaptive quarantine until October 31
Quarantine restrictions will be extended in Ukraine until October 31 inclusive, the Prime Minister of Ukraine said.
Due to the increase in the growth of COVID-19 disease, the government of Ukraine is extending the adaptive quarantine until at least November 1, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal announced during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.
“Adaptive quarantine allows us to maintain a balance between restrictions and normal life,” he said. “But the increase in incidence in recent weeks makes us act more decisively. Restrictions and zoning will be valid until at least November."
In addition, as part of the fight against the pandemic, Ukraine closes the border for foreigners to enter until September 28.
Also, the Prime Minister added that on August 27 the TES and ES commission will consider the issue of banning mass events during the celebration of the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah in Uman.
“Unfortunately, we will have to make a decision to ban such mass events in the city of Uman. This is our responsibility, and we should not create additional big risks for Ukrainians, and not only for them but also for citizens of other states,” he said.
