Council members took new decisions within the scope of preventive measures to avoid a further spread of COVID-19 in the country:
Public institutions have been strictly recommended to keep away from overseas business trips except for an extreme necessity. This recommendation also applies to study tours, which will be channeled through the system by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia.
In addition, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia briefed the Inter-Agency Coordination Council on the process of inbound entry of the citizens of Georgia from their current stay in Italy. Four hotlines operate round the clock at the Embassy of Georgia in Italy. Citizens of Georgia who purchased their outbound flight tickets from Italy two weeks ago reached out the authorities via the hotline. Registration is practically completed.
Diplomatic mission of Georgia ensures a smooth operation of the hotline in various cities of Italy and transportation of Georgian citizens registered on the online platform of the embassy to Rome ultimately for their organized return to Georgia.
In addition, Inter-Agency Coordination Council once again strictly calls upon the citizens who were instructed to stay away for self-isolation purposes during their quarantine, to demonstrate a higher social responsibility and adhere to the recommendations issued by the Ministry of Health of Georgia on self-isolation to make sure that no potential threat is caused to their family members and general public", reads the information released by the Government's press service.
