The proposal to extend the quarantine and make it adaptive was made by the Minister of Health Maxim Stepanov. Based on his initiative, the Cabinet of Ministers decided to launch adaptive quarantine in the country from May 22 to June 22. Its essence lies in the fact that restrictive measures will be gradually relaxed depending on the epidemic situation in each region.
“It is proposed to establish quarantine on the territory of Ukraine from May 22 to June 22, taking into account the epidemic situation in the regions. This is the so-called adaptive quarantine that we talked about,”
So, first of all, regions where the number of cases of COVID-19 infection over the past seven days has not exceeded 12 people per 100 thousand of the population, and the workload of hospital beds allocated for those infected with coronavirus does not exceed 50%.
In the future, the easing of quarantine measures will occur in five stages, each of which will last approximately 10 days. Now we are at the first. So, already on May 22, the second stage will start, when the work of urban, suburban and intra-regional public transport will resume, hotels will start working, and sports competitions will be allowed to be held.
Also from Monday, May 25, the subway and kindergartens will resume work. Prime Minister Denys Shmygal published an illustration on Telegram that clearly demonstrates all the easing. Keep it to yourself so you don’t forget.
At the same time, quarantine will be relaxed only in those regions where the epidemiological situation contributes to this. This is the essence of “adaptive” quarantine. If the situation in some regions worsens, restrictive measures will be strengthened.
And we remind you that the coronavirus has not gone away. Relaxing lockdowns does not mean that you should stop following precautions to control and spread COVID-19 infection. On the contrary, given all the mitigations, we continue to actively wear masks, wash our hands and use an antiseptic. It is better to avoid crowds during walks, trips and shopping trips.
By the way, given that spring is in full swing and everything is blooming around, allergy sufferers should be especially careful. People whose immune systems react negatively to pollen from various plants may confuse common allergies with symptoms of COVID-19. In order not to panic and correctly analyze your condition, it is important to understand the signs of the condition.
