Russia’s tourism industry to begin easing quarantine restrictions June 1
Russia’s tourism industry will begin the first stage of lifting quarantine restrictions on June 1, said Zarina Doguzova, the head of the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rosturizm), during a broadcast of the television program “Dok Tok” on Channel 1.
Doguzova said that the first step will begin with the opening of sanatoriums (health resorts) with medical licenses, rental cottages, and apartment hotels.
“Basically we understand that health resort facilities with medical licenses [will open]. In a number of regions we are also talking about hotels with cottage accommodations and apartment hotels. This is the first stage of the exit from quarantine measures,” Doguzova said (as quoted by TASS).
At the end of March, the Russian government ordered all lodging houses, holiday homes, sanatoriums, and other types of resorts to suspend bookings until June 1.
