In Moscow, the mandatory requirement to transfer 30% of employees to remote mode is canceled. The corresponding decree was signed by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin on February 25.
“The requirement to transfer 30% of employees to a remote work mode is being transferred from mandatory to recommendatory,” he wrote in his blog today, telling about the current situation with omicron in the city.
Sobyanin explained that since the end of January, when there was a peak in the incidence of covid among residents of the capital, the number of new cases has decreased by more than three times. The number of hospitalizations has halved, including children by 80%.
On February 25, 3,333 covid patients were identified in Moscow, which was the lowest value since the beginning of January, when the fifth wave of coronavirus began in Russia.
“Hospitals and polyclinics are returning to work as usual and increasing the planned admission of patients,” the mayor added.
Recall that from October 25, 2021 to February 25, 2022, Moscow employers had to transfer at least 30% of their employees to remote work, including citizens over 60 years old and suffering from chronic diseases. It was only about those workers who had not been vaccinated or had not suffered coronavirus.
Earlier, the mayor’s office said that medical institutions in Moscow began to return to the planned mode of work.
