As the epidemiological situation in Moscow continues to improve, HSE management has decided to phase out lockdown measures in dormitories that were previously introduced in order to protect students.
First of all, the curfew has been lifted—now students can enter and leave the buildings 24/7.
In response to student proposals, on June 18, the administration decided to change the policy regarding the absence from the dorms. It is now possible to leave the dormitories for up to two days without having to be quarantined in Voronovo upon return. In addition, today the free entry to the dorms has been restored; the students who do not live in the dorms can also visit them.
Having analysed the proposals of students of the internal mobility programme, the administration postponed the dorm move-out dates for a month. So, students don’t need to hurry to get back for their belongings as this can be done until July 20. Students who decided to leave the dorms can now access their rooms for no more than three hours to take everything they need.
While the number of COVID-19 cases in Moscow is declining, the risk of infection is still quite high in the regions, so further course of action will depend on the overall situation in Russia.
