Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control, has recommended keeping the number of people participating in festivals to a minimum. In particular, to be up to 100 people and they should keep a 2-meter distance.
Gamkrelidze noted that it is necessary to use a face mask at such events, and all who attend should have been vaccinated twice, have a PCR test done in the prior 72 hours, or a rapid antigen test in the last 24 hours.
“In many different gatherings, people who have not been infected or vaccinated are being tested. We are gradually adopting this culture, and it will be necessary to maintain this behavior during this pandemic, in all crowded spaces, or in places where a group of people gather: seminars, workshops, conferences, and so on,” he stated.
