Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday that Russians able to work from home should do so next week, when Vladimir Putin has declared a “non-work week” to curb the spread of coronavirus.

“We assume that those people working from home so far will continue this same work next week. We aren’t talking about holidays or time off in the traditional sense. These non-business days were introduced to minimize [physical] contact between people,” explained Peskov.
