Based on the decision of the Interagency Coordination Council, May 4-11, the period following the Easter Holiday in Georgia, has been declared a public holiday nationwide.
Considering the increase in the new coronavirus cases, the Council recommends employers to switch to remote working.
Deputy Minister of Health Tamar Gabunia, however, noted that the “holidays” will not apply to the operation of public transport, and details will be further specified soon.
The government administration reports that the Coordination Council discussed the epidemiological situation at the meeting, which is deteriorating around the world, including in Georgia.
It was noted that the dynamics of the increase in the number of cases observed in the country are noteworthy and requires a particularly responsible approach from both the government and the citizens. The need to observe the established regulations was once again underlined, which will prevent the country from the third wave of the virus.
