The city advises employers transfer employees to remote work if possible. If this is not possible, it is necessary to ventilate the premises as often as possible, monitor compliance with the mask regime and social distance,” Anna Starostenko, deputy head of the Kyiv City State Administration, said.
According to her, in the capital, as well as throughout Ukraine, a rapid increase in the incidence of coronavirus is recorded, which makes it necessary to tighten control over the observance of quarantine in the city as much as possible.
“We see that a new wave of the coronavirus pandemic has already begun in Ukraine, because the number of new cases of COVID-19 is growing rapidly. And Kiev will not be an exception. Therefore, we must be ready and prevent the spread of the virus among city residents as much as possible,” Starostenko said. .
She noted that since the new Omicron strain is very contagious, especially indoors, it is possible to reduce the risk of infection only by observing the basic sanitary rules: observance of the mask regime, distance and hand hygiene.
