In the Vladimir region the introduction of restrictions on visiting public places and public catering establishments without QR-codes or certificates of vaccination against coronavirus was canceled. This was told at a briefing on December 14 by the acting first vice-governor, Alexander Remiga.
According to the civil servant, such a decision is dictated by two factors. Firstly, it’s the position and condition of the business community. Introduction of restrictions before the New Year holidays will have a negative impact on the state of business and will have consequences for the next months.
Second, regional authorities have not yet received any clear signals from the federal level, despite the active discussion of this issue in the last two weeks. Alexander Remiga said that the White House hopes to get “at least some summary part” in the near future. December 16 the bill on the introduction of QR codes was scheduled to consider at the meeting in the State Duma, after which it was planned to determine the legal framework within which the regional authorities should act on holidays.
The first vice-governor has explained that the head of the region has made a decision based on several factors, including the evaluation of epidemiological indicators, as well as the responsibility of business in compliance with the requirements of the regional Rospotrebnadzor.
It will be recalled that the introduction of QR codes for visiting public places, and also cafes, restaurants, hotels, trade, cultural and entertainment organizations was postponed several times in the region. The reasons for the extension of the “moratorium” on the introduction of the restrictions previously were the low level of vaccination of the citizens due to which such innovation will be practically equivalent to the complete cessation of the work of institutions.
