From June 1, Turkmenistan will partially cancel the mandatory mask regime and resume international flights. Relevant decisions were made at a government meeting dedicated to the results of the country's socio-economic development for four months of this year.
As Deputy Prime Minister Sapardurdy Toylyev, who oversees science, education and healthcare, said at the meeting, according to WHO reports, the situation with the pandemic in the world has begun to decline, and many countries are gradually lifting restrictions and softening preventive measures. He said that the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Service of the country proposes to cancel the mandatory wearing of masks from June 1, with the exception of cases of being in all types of transport and enclosed spaces.
The Deputy Prime Minister, given the high level of vaccination against COVID-19 in the world, proposed resuming flights to the UAE (Abu Dhabi) and Germany (Frankfurt am Main) once a week, as it was before the pandemic. It was also proposed to open the holiday season in the Avaza national tourist zone on the Turkmen coast of the Caspian Sea from May 15.
President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov approved the submitted proposals and instructed to organize regular flights from all velayat (regional) centers to the city of Turkmenbashi for vacationers from May 25.
