The shopping centers will resume work on Saturday and Sunday, by obeying a number of anti-epidemic measures. Such a decision was taken by the National Extraordinary Public Health Commission on March 5, IPN reports.
The managers of shopping centers will be obliged to monitor the state of health of employees, to strictly measure the temperature of each visitor and to make sure that the visitors wear a mask. The persons with fever will not be allowed to enter the shops. Inside, the number of visitors should meet the ratio of 1 visitor per 4 square meters.
In a press release, the Government says the new norms that refer to shopping centers were discussed with representatives of these and were accepted.
A number of owners and employees of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on March 5 protested in central Chisinau to show their dissatisfaction with the National Extraordinary Public Health Commission’s decision by which they were banned from working on the weekend. They consider the decision is discriminatory as other retail units are allowed to work. The Commission on February 15 decided that the shopping centers will not work on the weekend as from February 17 given the unfavorable epidemiological situation.
