About masking and quarantine
27 may 2020

Almaty Akim B. Sagintayev, at a briefing for the media, spoke about measures to stabilize the sanitary-epidemiological situation in the city and the need to comply with sanitary safety rules


Self-isolation of the population and quarantine measures during a state of emergency have prevented the mass infection of the population, respectively, of grave consequences for the majority of citizens.

Wearing protective masks outdoors is recommended in order to reduce the risk of infection. The mask also protects against any accidental contact with the face, as there may be a virus on the hands. According to the WHO, a person on average, touches his face 3-5 times a minute, without controlling the process, which increases the risk of infection in the case of contaminated hands. 

The obligation of wearing protective masks in the population regards everyone when they are indoors, where it is difficult to maintain social distance - in pharmacies, shops, offices, medical organizations, public health centers and transport; when assisting a person with suspected COVID-19; persons who have symptoms similar to the coronavirus infection.

Every day, mobile teams consisting of specialists from the regional departments of the Department for Quality and Safety Control of Goods and Services of Almaty carry out monitoring at facilities to identify quarantine violations.

To date, 69 administrative fines have been imposed and 2 administrative protocols have been drawn up for the public catering facility for non-compliance with the quarantine requirements - the absence of a mask, sanitizers, non-observance of the social distance at food trade facilities.

As you know, the launch of non-food stores is carried out after passing an assessment of the readiness of facilities, conducted by a working group of employees of the Akimat, Health Inspection Services, and the National Chamber of Entrepreneurs “Atameken”. To date, instructions on the operation of business facilities during quarantine have been developed and approved by the chief state sanitary doctor in Almaty.

In addition, the observance of sanitary and epidemiological rules is monitored by monitoring groups during random inspections of shopping centers. The responsibility is held on the administration of the shopping and entertainment center.

Raid activities with the participation of sanitary epidemiologists and police began on May 22 and will be carried out on an ongoing basis.
