Health Min­is­ter Max­im Stepanov announced the exten­sion of quar­an­tine in Ukraine dur­ing an inter­view with RBC. Thus, adap­tive quar­an­tine will be extend­ed for at least anoth­er month. The Min­istry of Health also pro­pos­es to amend its con­di­tions. Exact­ly which ones, how­ev­er, is not spec­i­fied.

“We quar­an­tine ends on July 31. Due to the cur­rent epi­dem­ic sit­u­a­tion, we can­not aban­don the restric­tive mea­sures. So we will con­tin­ue.”

Actu­al­ly, this is quite expect­ed and nat­ur­al — after all, Ukraine is still on the “red” list for the epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion in many coun­tries. There­fore, the bor­ders of the EU coun­tries and the Schen­gen zone, which are already ready to accept res­i­dents of 15 coun­tries, are not opened for our cit­i­zens.

In addi­tion, dur­ing today’s brief­ing, Stepanov said that the min­istry is active­ly work­ing on the devel­op­ment of rules accord­ing to which chil­dren will be able to go to school from Sep­tem­ber 1.

“Togeth­er with the Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Sci­ence, we are ana­lyz­ing the whole sit­u­a­tion, look­ing at how this is hap­pen­ing abroad, and we want to take the best prac­tices. We want to make the process of teach­ing chil­dren as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble on the one hand, and also as safe as pos­si­ble on the oth­er,” the min­is­ter said.

Among the rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the work of schools from Sep­tem­ber 1, accord­ing to him, the fol­low­ing are con­sid­ered:

  • All employ­ees will have their tem­per­a­ture tak­en before start­ing work.
  • Chil­dren have their tem­per­a­ture tak­en before enter­ing school.
  • Employ­ees and chil­dren with a tem­per­a­ture above 37.2 are not allowed into the insti­tu­tion.
  • Par­ents who bring their child to the facil­i­ty must wear masks.
  • Estab­lish­ments must be equipped with anti­sep­tics.
  • Chil­dren use them exclu­sive­ly under the super­vi­sion of an edu­ca­tor or teacher. These are gen­er­al things, every­thing else is promised to be devel­oped next week.

By the way, as of July 15, 836 new cas­es of coro­n­avirus infec­tion were record­ed in Ukraine, 61 of them in chil­dren and 41 in med­ical work­ers.
