According to the Ministry of Health, the Odesa region meets the criteria (a large number of tests, a small number of new patients and a small number of hospitals with coronavirus patients) according to which quarantine can be mitigated.

So, from May 22 in the territory of area long-distance passenger transportations are resumed. At the same time, the movement of public transport in cities and within districts should be resumed by the decision of local emergency commissions.

In addition, we are working with Ukrzaliznytsia to return rail connections within the region. If within a week the railways complete all the necessary preparatory work and the epidemic situation allows, the suburban trains will start working from June 1.

Also, all institutions and establishments will resume work - without the use of remote work of employees. In some social protection organizations, group training will be allowed, but for no more than five people.

If the recommendations of the Ministry of Health are followed, preschool education institutions will be opened. External evaluation will take place in schools, and higher education institutions will conduct an introductory campaign.

I urge everyone to continue to use personal protective equipment and follow the recommendations of doctors so that the number of new infections is controlled and no additional restrictions have to be introduced.

Take care of yourself and follow the quarantine rules.
