Authorities of Moscow region introduce QR-code system and new restrictions


Since June 28 the Moscow Region will introduce a system of QR-codes to visit catering establishments, bars, clubs and discos. Only visitors who have been vaccinated against coronavirus or have recovered from COVID-19 will be allowed into cafes and restaurants. It will be possible to enter summer verandahs of public catering without a QR code. The corresponding decree was signed by the Governor of the region Andrei Vorobiev.

Since June 24:

 - sports, entertainment, cultural and other events are prohibited indoors with more than 50 spectators and with 500 participants in the open air;
