Now it’s official: Non – Working Week in Moscow


Non – Working Week Regime

The mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin on Saturday announced a “non-working” week in the Russian capital starting June 14, with non-essential workers told to stay at home, as Covid-19 cases within the city hit a six-month high.

Together with the weekends and a public holiday on June 14, it means, that the majority of Moscow’s workers will not return to their offices until June 20.

The mayor also announced the closure of food courts and playgrounds while restaurants, bars and clubs will be baned from serving customers between 23:00 and 06:00.

Sobyanin also called on employers to transfer at least 30 percent of non-vaccinated employees to working from home after the week-long shutdown.
