Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has extended the recommended self-isolation regime for citizens over 65 and with chronic diseases until January 15. Businesses still need to keep at least 30% of their employees working remotely.

In addition, leisure children's institutions in Moscow will be closed until January 15. Earlier, we recall, it was assumed that they should resume their work on Sunday, November 29.

"We have to live in this mode for the next month and a half. And even the New Year we will most likely celebrate as a family holiday - in a small home circle", - suggested the mayor.

According to him, shops, service enterprises, industry and business will continue their work until mid-January.

The mayor urged the townspeople to remain "as careful as possible and not to put unnecessary risk to their health," because this is how "together we are bringing the end of the pandemic closer".

"The situation with the spread of COVID-19 remains tense. Of course, in October, the growth rate of hospitalizations and pneumonia was much higher. Now there is a gradual smoothing of the growth dynamics. But it is too early to talk about a transition to a decrease in the incidence rate", - said Sergey Sobyanin.

Recall that the Moscow authorities in October again, as in the spring, began to block pensioners' transport cards, when the number of newly detected infections began to rise again, and the elderly were ordered to observe a home regime. Human rights ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova called the blocking of travel passes an excessive measure, and the head of the Council of Deputies of the Krasnoselsky municipal district, Ilya Yashin, called on Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin to compensate pensioners for blocked travel passes.
