The authorities of the Pskov region, in addition to the mandatory wearing of protective masks in public places, intend to oblige residents of the region to wear gloves. About this at a meeting of the operational headquarters to combat the spread of coronavirus infection declared Governor Mikhail Vedernikov.

Vedernikov instructed the regional department of Rospotrebnadzor to develop appropriate recommendations so that people understand when to use gloves. “We will explain what medical gloves are, what household gloves are. How one or the other helps to defend oneself – are there sterile surgical ones, there are non-sterile ones … So that everyone understands for himself when and which ones to use, ”said the head of the region.
Wear gloves in crowded areas recommended and residents of the Moscow region following a meeting of Governor Andrei Vorobyov with heads of municipalities.

In the Moscow region, a mandatory mask regime will enter into force from May 12, before this restriction is advisory in nature. Residents of Bashkiria, Kaluga, Ivanovo, Samara, Rostov and Sverdlovsk regions, Krasnodar and Primorsky territories should also wear masks.
