Starting April 22, a number of new regulations concerning self-isolation and quarantine will go into effect in Moscow.
It is now necessary to request a permit for traveling around the city by any means of transport NO LATER than FIVE hours before the trip. For public transport, it is necessary to indicate your Troyka card number (or your Strelka card for trips by suburban trains).
Permits are also required for bike rides. You don’t need a permit to walk to the nearest grocery store or pharmacy.
How to get a permit.
A fourteen-day quarantine is now mandatory not only for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, but for anyone suffering from the common cold. The doctor examining you for cold symptoms will give you an official mandatory quarantine notice. If you receive such a notice, you may not leave your house or dorm unless there is a medical emergency.
Those who live with a person suffering from a cold should also self-isolate for 14 days. During this period, healthy household members may leave their homes for the following purposes: to walk to the nearest supermarket or pharmacy, walk their dog, or take out the trash. Using any kind of transport is not allowed unless there is a medical emergency.
Quarantine violations will result in a fine of 15,000 to 40,000 RUB.
