Hotels and other facilities, which provide short-term accommodation are closed. They can function only as quarantine or isolation places, as well as a place for medical personnel. 
Important! Guests who stay in these facilities must check out by 2nd of April. This doesn’t apply to persons who use accommodation services as part of their duties (e.g. business trip). 

Home quarantine is mandatory not only for those who just returned from abroad, but also for people living with them (so roommates, family).

Remember: dormitory cannot be a quarantine place!!

All the other restrictions on the movement (from 24th March) remain in force and effect.
