To keep senior citizens at home, Moscow's mayor has suspended free travel on public transport for people older than 65
In an effort to discourage senior citizens from leaving their homes, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has suspended free travel on public transit throughout the city for people older than 65.
To curb the spread of coronavirus, the capital is also closing all nightclubs, libraries, movie theaters, skating rinks, and bowling alleys. Following a meeting on March 24, a federal task force demanded the same precautions nationwide.
On March 23, Sobyanin required all Moscow residents older than 65 to shelter in place and avoid public spaces between March 26 and April 14.
