Rospotrebnadzor has banned passengers without personal protective equipment in public transport in Moscow, according to the official Telegram channel of the capital's transport.
It is known that the control over the observance of the mask and glove regime in public transport will be strengthened from Friday, October 16. The corresponding order came from the chief sanitary doctor of Moscow Elena Andreeva.
Now carriers are obliged not to let passengers into vehicles without personal protective equipment, even if the trip has already been paid for. Vehicle checks will be carried out more frequently. They will also be attended by representatives of law enforcement agencies.
According to the department, all drivers and machinists of Moscow transport must undergo a medical examination before each flight. In addition, the disinfection of all surfaces should be enhanced.
“We are required to test for coronavirus every 15 days on at least 10% of employees,” the statement said.
Representatives of the department note that these are strict measures, but they will help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Recall that earlier, in the course of checking compliance with the mask regime at the Kazansky, Leningradsky and Yaroslavsky railway stations in Moscow, 147 citizens were fined.
