For Orthodox Easter, the regulation will appear in the next government decision. However, there is no discussion of limiting participation in the “Resurrection” service.

Previous information suggesting that there will be bans on leaving localities where the restrictions are over 3.5/1000 were not confirmed. Therefore, there is no ban on leaving localities, but areas that are in quarantine, will remain in quarantine.
