Plovdiv, seven more districts in Bulgaria introduce anti-Covid measures – The Sofia Globe

Bulgarian counties of Plovdiv, Blagoevgrad, Kyustendil, Montana, Pernik, Razgrad, Stara Zagora and Haskovo are the latest to introduce Level 1 measures against the spread of Covid-19 on July 22.

In the Plovdiv district, a regulation that is still valid until August 22 makes it compulsory to wear a protective mask in medical facilities, pharmacies, drugstores, social homes and public transport.

A distance of 1.5 meters must be maintained between visitors to “sites of public importance”, shops and businesses.

The employer must enable measures to combat epidemics at the workplace, such as ventilation, disinfection, instruction of staff in personal hygiene and, as far as possible, home work.

In children’s institutions and social institutions, screening for symptoms of Covid-19 must be carried out in the morning.

The measures in Blagoevgrad, Kyustendil, Montana, Pernik, Razgrad, Stara Zagora and Haskovo districts, also valid until August 22, are similar based on the provisions of the new version of the national plan released last week by the Bulgarian government were accepted.

Temporary anti-epidemic measures came into effect on July 19 in Sofia and Burgas districts, on July 20 in Sofia, Dobrich and Yambol districts, and on July 21 in Gabrovo, Varna, Vratsa, Sliven and Silistra.
