The Governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov has expanded the list of places closed to the public. It hit the cemetery, which cannot be visited until the end of April.
An exception will be made only for burial ceremonies, says the website “pink news”. Earlier similar measures were introduced in Moscow.
As explained by the mayor of the capital Sergey Sobyanin, in terms of the spread of coronavirus it would be wrong to expose people, especially the elderly, at risk.
