Against the background of a decrease in the number of detected cases of coronavirus infection, the regions are gradually lifting restrictions introduced in autumn and winter.

Rospotrebnadzor predicts a decline in the incidence of COVID-19 in Russia in March. On January 25, President Vladimir Putin said that a positive trend with a decrease in the incidence provides an opportunity to "carefully remove the restrictions imposed." Against this background, the regions began to weaken antiquarian measures.

The Moscow authorities were one of the first in the country to allow bars, restaurants and cafes to work at night. But restrictions on caterings’ work still remain in most regions.

Udmurtia became the first region where the mandatory wearing of masks was canceled. Later, the Chechen Republic joined it.

Against the background of the weakening of restrictions in a number of Russian regions, Rospotrebnadzor noted that the country still has a mandatory mask regime.
