“The quarantine period has been reduced from two weeks to seven days for persons who have been in contact with patients with COVID-19 ... The new rules come into force on January 26 and apply, among other things, to everyone who has been issued an order by Rospotrebnadzor before the effective date of this decision” , the message says.

It is noted that regardless of the quarantine expiration date specified in the issued resolution of Rospotrebnadzor, it expires 7 days from the date of issue.

The sick leave in this case will now also be issued for 7 days from the moment of the last contact.

Earlier, the Moscow Department of Health reported that due to the increase in the number of children entering healthcare institutions in Moscow, planned hospitalization in children's hospitals was canceled for three weeks.
