Many Russians wonder when the epidemic will be over in the country and when they will go back to normal life. There is no exact answer to this question, but some positive news has started to appear in the media. In particular, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko said that Russia is preparing to resume domestic tourism. So, the restrictions will be lifted gradually as of June 1.
“The safe and controlled restart of domestic tourism in the first half of the summer is our priority,” said Chernyshenko. “Beginning with June 1, we are going to remove restrictions systematically and accurately. From that date on, a restart of domestic tourism will begin in Russia. At the first stage, health resorts with medical licenses will reopen. At the same time, the government is already designing rules for the further steps of reopening of the tourism industry — hotels, beaches, resorts, cruise, etc.”
He added that representatives of the tourism sector will be obliged to check out the new operating instructions, which the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rosturizm) and the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) will prepare in the short term.
“Before June 1, Rosturizm and Rospotrebnadzor will be expected to draft recommendations for the representatives of the tourism industry that will help them understand the rules under which they will carry out their activities in the new reality,” Chernyshenko said.
In conclusion, he said the situation around the COVID-19 epidemic has been under control in Russia, and the number of new cases is gradually decreasing.
