10 February 2021


The mandatory mask regime in public places in Chechnya and restrictions on entry into the region, which were introduced due to the pandemic of new coronavirus infection, were canceled. This was announced on his Telegram channel by the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.

"We are lifting the mandatory wearing of masks in public places in the Chechen Republic. At the same time, we strongly recommend wearing them due to the fact that the threat of COVID-19 is still high for those who are in the risk group or have not yet fallen ill. We are also lifting restrictions on movement across the borders of the country. This is also an important decision in conditions of the growing interest of tourists to our region," Kadyrov wrote.

He noted that the epidemiological situation in the region is good. "Of course, we will continue to keep the covid situation under control. Our medical institutions are equipped with everything necessary in case the diseases grow," the head of Chechnya added.

According to the latest data, 11,066 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the Chechen Republic, including 92 cases in the past 24 hours. 10,256 people have recovered and 109 patients have died. In June 2020, Kadyrov announced the lifting of most of the restrictions, and in January of this year, cinemas, children's entertainment centers, concert halls, bathhouses and swimming pools were reopened, provided they are not above 50% occupancy.
