The President of Russia supported the proposal of the country's government to declare non-working days from October 30 to November 7. According to him, the level of vaccination remains low, which contributes to the spread of coronavirus infection.
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government Tatyana Golikova today at a meeting with members of the government, which was chaired by Vladimir Putin, proposed in connection with the spread of the coronavirus to introduce non-working days throughout the country from October 30 to November 7 inclusive.
According to Tatyana Golikov, the regions of the Russian Federation must ensure that decisions are made on admission to public events and individual objects, including on non-working days - only if there is a QR code on vaccination or a certificate of a past illness.
In addition, Golikova advocated the introduction of a home regime for unvaccinated pensioners and the temporary transfer of older employees who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to a remote mode of work.
The President stressed that the wages of employees during non-working days should be preserved.
In addition, Putin agreed to give the regions the right to establish additional non-working days to combat COVID. The head of state called on the regions, if necessary, to introduce non-working days since October 23.
