In the Perm Territory, shopping centers may be closed on New Year’s holidays. This will happen if the epidemiological situation in the region worsens.
As the source familiar with the situation told IA “Ura.ru”, this scenario is being discussed in the regional operational headquarters to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
The headquarters fears that residents will go with their families to shopping centers on holidays, and this will lead to crowds and a new outbreak of coronavirus. The simplest thing in this situation is to close the shopping center for the entire New Year holidays. Experts understand that such a decision can seriously affect business, so alternative options are being discussed.
In turn, at the headquarters itself, the agency was reminded that from mid-November, additional measures to counter COVID-19 began to operate in the Perm Territory, and further steps of the sanitary authorities will depend on the current epidemiological situation.
On November 16, it was reported that cinemas and food courts in shopping centers stopped operating in the Novosibirsk region. This is due to the unfavorable situation with the coronavirus.
