Curfew to be lifted in Georgia on July 1
Georgia is lifting several coronavirus restrictions following today's meeting of the Interagency Coordination Council, the Georgian government said.
Starting today, wearing a face mask in outdoor space will no longer be mandatory, while the restriction remains in force in gathering places such as bus stops, public transport and indoor spaces.
However, the Interagency Coordination Council still recommends wearing a face mask regularly as 'it is recognised as one of the most effective means of preventing the spread of the coronavirus in the world'.
In addition, starting July 1 the curfew will be lifted in Georgia, however restaurants and food facilities in general will be open until 00:00. The operation of nightclubs remains restricted.
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced that one million doses of coronavirus vaccine will be delivered to Georgia in two weeks, but he did not specify which vaccine it will be.
"A million doses of vaccine will be delivered in two weeks and we will start an intensive vaccination process," Agenda.ge cited Garibashvili as saying.
The government of Georgia states that the process of receiving the coronavirus vaccine will continue in stages and by the end of the year, more than 3.6 million vaccines will have entered the country.
