Moscow transport has tightened control over the observance of the mask and glove regime until May 10. This was announced on Sunday, May 2, by TASS with reference to the Transportation Organizer GKU.
“Moscow transport is strengthening control over the observance of the mask and glove regime on holidays. More than 1.2 thousand inspectors of the State Public Institution “Organizer of Transportation” check the presence of masks and gloves on passengers in transport from May 1 to May 10, which is 140% more than on a regular day off. Raids are carried out regularly on all sections of the metro (entrance, platforms, train carriages), on land and rail transport in Moscow, ”the statement says.
It is noted that often people remove their protective equipment after passing control at the turnstiles. It is easier to restrain the growth of morbidity if passengers use masks and gloves throughout the trip, said the organizer of transportation.
The department stressed that protective equipment can be purchased at all metro and MCC stations, at suburban ticket offices on the railway, in vending machines at bus stations and bus stations.
Earlier that day, doctors advised Muscovites to refrain from traveling to other regions of the country in a large company and on public transport. According to experts, there is still a risk of coronavirus infection. At a particular risk are the elderly and people with chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, diabetes mellitus.
On April 30, it became known that the verification of observance of the mask regime in shopping centers and shops in Moscow will be strengthened during the May holidays and non-working days. According to the head of the Moscow Department of Trade and Services Alexei Nemeryuk, a large number of guests will come to the city, which will increase the load on the shopping center.
The mask mode was introduced on the territory of Moscow on May 12, 2020 amid the spread of COVID-19. Personal protective equipment must be worn in stores, shopping malls, pharmacies, the workplace, and all forms of public transport, including taxis.
