Since March 25, a strict restriction on the movement of people has been introduced. People can leave the house only in case of emergency – with a passport and a “travel profile”. In it, everyone needs to enter their personal data, purpose and estimated time of return. Violations are monitored by the police.
All public transport has been stopped, including the metro.
