Employees should continue working from home in Moscow in the next one month or two, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in a televised interview with Rossiya’1 channel on Friday, APA reports quoting TASS.
"In particular, now that we are just getting out of the coronavirus story, if you can continue working remotely, you should preserve that in the coming weeks, and perhaps, even a month or two more, as there is still a risk of infection," Sobyanin said.
The mayor added that the number of movements around the city increased considerably to about 70% of the pre-pandemic level. Sobyanin urged to wear face masks in the metro, ground transport and on commuter trains.
