According to Prime Minister's Advisor for International Affairs and Spokesman Irakli Chikovani, from today, wearing face masks in enclosed public spaces will be mandatory.

"Legal entities will be held responsible for the fulfillment of this requirement. I would like to remind you that the liability for legal entities has been set at 15,000 GEL. I would also like to remind you that starting tomorrow, restrictions will be imposed on entering cemeteries as well," the prime minister's advisor noted.

As Irakli Chikovani stated, if the restrictions imposed under the state of emergency are not rigorously observed by everyone, the epidemiological situation will deteriorate and the government will have to severely tighten the measures in the nearest future, which means declaring a full quarantine across the entire country.

"Unless every citizen - the private sector, the government, businesses, religious organizations, the civil society, everyone - rigorously observes the restrictions in place under the state of emergency and upholds the law, this will definitely become the basis for the sharp deterioration of the epidemiological situation in the country, and we will have to severely tighten the measures in the nearest future, which means declaring a full quarantine across the entire country. Once again, I strongly urge you to be responsible, take care of your own health, as well as the health of others, and stay at home! Every additional restriction or tightening of measures is aimed only at ensuring the health of our citizens, providing infected persons with comprehensive healthcare services, returning to the normal pace of life as soon as possible and with minimal losses, and gradually reviving our economy as planned. Therefore, I urge you to take care of each other, to take care of our country, and to not break the law! Stay at home! This is the only appeal of the Government of Georgia," Irakli Chikovani stated.
