Lockdown in Ukraine is not extended: what will happen after January 24?

The Prime Minister of Ukraine commented on the situation with the lockdown.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal confirmed that the lockdown in Ukraine after January 24 will not be extended.

“This quarantine will end on the 24th, from the 25th we will probably move to the orange zone, which was in effect before the introduction of these rules,” he said in an interview with the Ukraine 24 channel.

As a reminder, from January 8 to January 24, Ukraine has a “winter” lockdown. On January 12, the media reported, citing Health Minister Maxim Stepanov, that it could be extended. Later Stepanov explained that the continuation does not concern the strict restrictions in force from January 8, but the quarantine, which is valid until February 28 (for this period, restrictions on the “orange zone” were introduced).

The Orange Zone provides for:

  • banning concerts, sports, social, religious and other events with more than 20 participants;
  • ban on discos and nightclubs;
  • restaurants from 23:00 to 07:00 will be able to work only for takeaway or delivery;
  • cinemas and theaters can be filled by no more than 50%;
  • in museums, gyms, the number of visitors should not exceed 1 person per 20 square meters;
  • in transport, the number of passengers should not exceed the number of seats.
