In Karelia, they decided to ease restrictions on tourists in hotels and catering establishments. Corresponding order signed head of the republic Artur Parfenchikov.
Now, if one condition is met, tourist centers, hostels and hotels located in the Russian region will no longer require guests to provide a vaccination certificate, a certificate of a previous coronavirus infection, or a negative PCR test.
To do this, accommodation facilities need to obtain a “collective immunity passport”. Organizations whose 60 percent of employees are either vaccinated against coronavirus or have had an infection in the past six months can apply for such a document.
Also, restrictions have been lifted in cafes and restaurants. Now more than five people can sit at one table.
Earlier in July, experts from the tourism industry reminded Russians of the current restrictions in different regions of Russia. For example, to check into hotels in the Krasnodar Territory, Sevastopol, Adygea, Dagestan, Chechnya and the Moscow Region, you need a certificate of vaccination or the presence of antibodies, as well as the results of a negative PCR test.
