As TASS clarifies, the final decision on this issue will be made in the evening during a meeting of the government headquarters to counter the spread of COVID-19.

The minister added that as part of the new quarantine, the government will urge the owners of drinking establishments and large department stores to suspend work. Events with spectators will also be prohibited.
