The Astrakhan region lifted a number of restrictions that were introduced at the end of last month due to the incidence of COVID. However, it immediately introduced others. Starting tomorrow, it will be possible to get to the restaurant by providing a QR code confirming vaccination, or a certificate of transferred covid. The number of people at one table should not exceed four people. At night, establishments are still prohibited from working. On similar conditions, they will be allowed to enter cinemas, swimming pools, gyms, etc.
The regional authorities made this decision following the results of the last meeting of the Operational Headquarters. They said that the restrictions introduced half a month ago were effective. This was reported on the official website of the head of the Astrakhan region Igor Babushkin.
In addition, non-food stores will start operating from August 9. However, the density of buyers will be strictly controlled. For tourists checking into regional accommodation facilities, everything remains the same. When checking in, they must provide a QR code or coronavirus test results.
Let s add that the previous tightening of measures took place on July 26th. Then, in the Astrakhan region, events were banned. Shopping centers, cinemas, swimming pools have suspended their work. Catering establishments were allowed to serve customers only for take-out or open verandas. Entrepreneurs and the public opposed such measures. On their behalf, a class action lawsuit was filed against the regional authorities. However, they failed to win the case.
According to statistics from August 7, 60% of local residents in the region were fully vaccinated against covid. 220,027 people received both doses. Over the entire period of the vaccine company, the Astrakhan region received more than 286.5 thousand doses of Sputnik V.
