The authorities of the Tula region have canceled the requirement for QR codes when visiting shopping centers
The authorities of the Tula region have eased coronavirus restrictions. In the region, the requirement to present QR codes when visiting shopping and entertainment centers (SEC) will be canceled. The corresponding decree, signed by the head of the region Alexei Dyumin, is posted on the portal of legal acts of the region.
According to the administration's statement on Facebook, this step was taken based on the epidemiological situation in the region and taking into account the proposals of the Chief Sanitary Doctor of the Tula Region.
It is noted that restaurants, bars and cafes were allowed to work at night with any restrictions on the number of visitors. However, when visiting such establishments, you must present a QR code about vaccination, past illness or negative PCR test.
Earlier, the Governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov explained the postponement of the entry into force of the decree providing for the introduction of QR codes for visiting restaurants and shopping centers, at the end of December. Beglov said that this decision is due to a decrease in the incidence of COVID-19 and an increase in the number of people vaccinated against the disease. He noted that in these conditions, the St. Petersburg authorities considered it possible to give city residents the opportunity to get vaccinated and make purchases for the New Year.
