Conditions for visiting beaches in Ukraine 2020 during the coronavirus


Despite the coronavirus pandemic, this summer the Ministry of Health will allow swimming in the seas and rivers, said the Chief State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine, Deputy Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko.

“We have consulted with the Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases and experts have confirmed that sea salt and ultraviolet radiation destroy the coronavirus,” he said.

Lyashko added that, although the pathogen has the ability to survive in fresh water, according to scientists, it is quite difficult to become infected in rivers with running water, except in very close contact. Therefore, the Ministry of Health will also allow swimming in rivers.

The main conditions for visiting the beaches:

  • do not visit the beaches for people at risk (the elderly and people with chronic diseases);
  • adhere to a safe distance (at least 2 meters);
  • follow the rules of personal hygiene – wash your hands, sneeze and cough into a disposable napkin or elbow;
  • service personnel on the beaches will have to wear masks.

It will be recalled that quarantine is currently underway in Ukraine. The second stage of its weakening is expected on May 22. At this stage, a partial restoration of transport connections is expected.
