    At the same time, the decision is taken to ease some restrictions applied in the country with a view to the pace of virus spread among communities.

    The suspension of the educational process in all educational institutions of the country as well as the training and education works is extended until 31 May 2020.

    The persons working in the areas where the restrictions are called off in the cities of Baku, Sumgayit, Ganja, Lenkeron and the Absheron district are allowed to travel after the data about such persons are input by their respective employers into the icaze.e-gov.az portal signing it electronically.

    During the pandemic, the activities of relevant institutions, including retail and service stores in the national territory are done in line with necessary social behavior and sanitary-epidemiological rules defined by the Task Force under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

    We appeal once again upon every person to observe individual hygiene, including medical preventive rules, exit your place of residence in the case of necessity only, minimize contacts with other persons in public places, and extend a proper support to the measures undertaken by the State and respect requirements and recommendations of the Task Force.

    In next stage, depending on sanitary epidemiological situation, a decision may be taken to call off another part of current restrictions.

    It should be noted that relevant rules are applied by analyzing regularly sanitary and epidemiological situation related to COVID-19 virus in the country. Due to this reason, once the dynamics of COVID virus infection and the disease status in the country will make it necessary, it is possible to see re-toughening of the special quarantine regime.
