Inter-city transport will resume operation from today and will be running on weekends as well. Also, ski resort hotels will reopen in full compliance with epidemic norms and regulations from today. Municipal transport will operate throughout the country including the weekends. It was announced by the Prime Minister of Georgia at the Executive Government Meeting today.
Irakli Garibashvili spoke in detail about the plan developed for a gradual lifting of COVID restrictions.
“In line with the pre-defined plan, following will gradually resume operation: air lifts at ski resorts, public and private pre-school care institutions, higher education institutions and vocational training centers. Restaurants will be permitted to admit customers indoors, except for weekends. Retail trade - not only groceries - will be allowed to operate on weekends as well. Libraries, museums, extracurricular school groups, theatres and professional ensembles, gyms and others will gradually reopen. I wish to once again underline that any easing or lifting of any COVID restriction is a responsibility to be borne by all of us, of course. I also wish to use this opportunity and urge my fellow citizens to demonstrate extra care for the referred easing, as Government needs a sound coordination, support and assistance from the population as well to make sure that progress achieved so far through the most effective management of the Minister of Health is maintained, strengthened and improved, thereby avoiding any deterioration of situation. Hence, this issue requires sound coordination and support through a joint effort of the population and authorities. We constantly monitor the current epidemic situation in the country and will be easing the restrictions on the grounds of routine analysis”, - said the Head of the Government.
