Mass events for Epiphany will not be held in five municipalities of the region. The Russian Orthodox Church called on to abandon the traditional January bathing of Volgograd residents due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At the beginning of the week, a blizzard and severe frosts down to -23 degrees are expected in the Volgograd region. According to doctors, swimming in Jordan in such conditions can weaken the body’s defenses, which is already not easy in the face of the spread of coronavirus infection. Metropolitan Hilarion also advised believers not to endanger their health.

In accordance with the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor, Epiphany bathing was prohibited in Mikhailovka and Frolovo… Later it became known that such events were also canceled in Novonikolaevsky, Kikvidzensky and Olkhovsky districts… Local Telegram channels report this.

In the Volgograd region in 2021, only 61 hot tubs will be equipped, of which six in the regional center. On the night of January 19, the Jordanians will organize a watch of rescuers, doctors, police officers, Cossacks, volunteers and representatives of the regional branch of VOSVOD.
