According to the press service of the head of Tatarstan, Minnikhanov made the corresponding statement at a meeting in the government of the republic.

“Over the past week, the incidence of COVID-19 in the republic has increased by 32%... Given the increase in the incidence, despite the earlier decision to suspend restrictive measures, for the time being I recommend introducing a mask regime in labor collectives, organizations and institutions of all forms of ownership,” - he said.

The head of the region stressed that it is also necessary to intensify work on re-vaccination of the population, without waiting for the epidemiological situation to worsen. 

Earlier, the operational headquarters for countering the spread of COVID-19 in Dagestan recommended the return of wearing masks in public places.
