On the eve of Orthodox Easter, Taganrog City Manager Andrei Lisitsky addressed the residents of Taganrog: "Exactly a year ago all of us stayed indoors. Those restrictions disrupted everyone's life. Nowadays we have partially succeeded in slowing the spread of COVID-19 thanks to the vaccine and following Rospotrebnadzor's requirements. Unfortunately, the pandemic has not been fully overcome yet. People are still suffering. Nobody wants to return to previous strict limitations. But much depends upon everyone's responsibility.
This May starts with a ten-day period of public holidays, announced by the President Vladimir Putin. The Russians will celebrate three holidays in a row, including Easter, and Victory Day.
It is especially important to remember and comply with anti-COVID-19 measures these days. We must wear face masks, keep a safe distance from each other, and avoid public places as much as we can. Spend the holidays with your family at home. So we will afford ourselves the strongest possible protection against the danger".
