In recent days, the incidence of the coronavirus COVID-19 began to grow in Russia again. Experts attribute this to the onset of colder autumn weather, the return of vacationers from vacations and dachas, as well as the beginning of a new school year. In Moscow, where the number of newly detected cases of coronavirus has ranged from 600 to 700 per day over the past three months, it has more than doubled over the past day. In this regard, the mayor of the capital, Sergey Sobyanin, once again called on Muscovites over 65 to stay at home and appealed to 5,000 companies and organizations with a request to return their employees to work remotely.
Many organizations are already transferring their employees to remote mode throughout the country. In particular, the Pochta Rossii (Russian Post) announced that such a transfer will begin there from October 1, no more than 10 % of employees will be able to stay in the office at the same time, RIA Novosti reports.
They noted that in the most acute period of the pandemic, the company also almost completely switched to remote mode - only those employees remained in Moscow offices who could not be transferred to "remote" (treasury, security service, employees of economic services). The same regime was applied to office workers in other regions. Since June, the remote mode of operation at the Russian Post has been only recommended.
