At the same time, the heads of regions should determine the territories within the borders of their subject where the restrictive measures can be extended, as well as ensure the suspension of the activities of individual organizations, taking into account the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor. In the event of a decision to suspend the activities of organizations, employees retain their wages. The corresponding decree was published on the Kremlin's website.
These restrictions will still not apply to:
continuously operating organizations,
medical and pharmacy organizations,
organizations that provide the population with food and essential goods,
organizations that perform urgent work, including repair and loading and unloading,
organizations that provide financial services in terms of urgent functions.
Recall that in Moscow, the self-isolation regime was extended until May 31. At the same time, from May 12, all industrial and construction enterprises can start working.
In addition, during the meeting, the President of the Russian Federation announced a new package of measures to support citizens and businesses in connection with the coronavirus epidemic.
Thus, individual entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized enterprises from the affected industries will be charged all tax and insurance payments for the second quarter, except VAT. And from June 1, a special loan program to support employment will be launched. At the same time, the loan itself and interest on it will be written off if employment at the enterprise remains at the level of 90% throughout the entire loan program. Self-employed citizens will be refunded income tax paid in 2019 and will be provided with "tax capital" in the amount of one minimum wage for tax payments, and individual entrepreneurs will be provided with a tax deduction in the amount of one minimum wage in respect of insurance premiums.
