As of February 16, 2022, only two regions—Poltava and Kharkiv regions, as well as the city of Kyiv are in the "yellow" quarantine zone. Five more—Ivano-Frankivsk, Rivne, Zakarpattia, Luhansk, and Khmelnytskyi regions—are in the "red" zone, all the rest ones are n the "orange" zone of the coronavirus.
Interactive map of coronavirus: What restrictions apply in quarantine zones
Adaptive quarantine provides for various restrictions in the "red", "yellow", "orange", and "green" zones of the coronavirus. However, they do not apply to teams that have a vaccination document (recall that there are "yellow" and "green" certificates that are issued subject to one vaccination and full vaccination, respectively), the absence of coronavirus, or a previous illness. This also applies to visitors: if an unvaccinated person visits a cinema, theater, museum, gym, swimming pool, or some event, then the rules and restrictions for the established level of epidemic danger apply.
To determine what zone a particular region should be attributed to, experts look at the following indicators:
- the occupancy of beds in hospitals;
- average number of tests per 100,000 people per day;
- coronavirus infection rate;
- dynamics of growth of infection cases.
Restrictions in the "green" zone
The "green" zone provides for significant easing of the quarantine, but it still presupposes a mask regime and social distancing.
Restrictions in the "yellow" zone
The "yellow" zone provides for more severe restrictions than the "green" one:
- it is forbidden to hold mass events with the participation of more than one person per 4 sq. m of the area of the building or territory;
- cinema halls and other cultural institutions cannot be occupied with more than 50% of seats;
- occupancy of gyms and fitness centers—no more than one person per 10 sq. m;
- no more than four people are allowed to sit at a table in catering establishments, the distance between tables is at least 1.5 m;
- kindergartens and school grades 1-4 will work full-time, and school grades 5-12 and other educational institutions—in their usual conditions if 100% of the staff of the educational institution are vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine;
Restrictions in the "orange" zone
In the "orange" zone, the restrictions of the "yellow" zone apply. Plus, local authorities can independently impose additional restrictions.
Restrictions in the "red" zone
If the region is included in the "red" zone, schools, restaurants and shopping centers, cinemas, theaters, educational institutions (except kindergartens and elementary schools), food markets and other institutions will be closed.
The above mentioned restrictions will not apply if 100% of employees (organizers) and visitors (participants) of these establishments (measures) are fully immunized and have a green COVID-certificate, a negative PCR or rapid test, or a certificate of recovery.
