Due to the increase in cases of coronavirus infection in Ukraine, the Cabinet of Ministers has prolonged the adaptive quarantine and announced a number of innovations.

The Cabinet of Ministers prolonged the adaptive quarantine in Ukraine until December 31 and limited the maximum number of participants in public events in all quarantine zones. This decision was made at an extraordinary government meeting on October 13, 2020.

According to Prime Minister Denis Shmygal, the government decided to change the norms regarding the maximum number of people in public events since "our calculations show that after concerts with a large crowd of people in the regions, the number of patients increased significantly".

Thus, from now on, the following restrictions on mass gatherings are in effect in Ukraine:

  • the "green" zone – maximum 50 people, subject to the observance of social distance and mask regime;
  • the "yellow" zone – no more than 30 people;
  • the "orange" zone – no more than 20 people.

В то же время в указанных зонах разрешается проведение спортивных мероприятий, но без зрителей.

At the same time, sporting events are allowed in these zones, but without spectators.

There is a ban on mass events in the "red" zone.

As reported, earlier the UOC commented on the authorities' idea to introduce a "weekend quarantine" in Ukraine.
