On the evening of March 29, the governments of the city of Moscow and the Moscow region announced that both areas would fall under shelter-in-place orders the following day to suppress the coronavirus epidemic. All of the city’s residents may now leave their homes only for “essential” purposes: going to the pharmacy or the grocery store, receiving emergency medical care, walking their dogs, taking out the trash, or going to work. On March 30, as Muscovites deserted the city’s streets, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin called on the rest of Russia’s federal subjects to follow the capital’s example. The following is a regularly updated list of the regions that have followed Mishustin’s recommendations and taken severe measures to keep public spaces empty.
