The State of Alert extended in Romania

the state of alert extended in romania Romania has extended the state of alert for another month

Returning to the normality prior to the pandemic has been put on hold in Romania.  Upon a request from the National Committee for Emergency Situations, the government of Romania has decided to postpone for another 30 days the state of alert in this country. Periodically renewed, this state has been in force since May last year, after two months of emergency caused by the raising concern about the novel coronavirus. So, people over 5 years old must still wear masks in indoor and outdoor spaces, in the streets, parks, offices, shops and public transportation.

Social distancing and personal hygiene rules remain highly recommended. Interdictions concerning meetings, street rallies and concerts are still in place and so do the rules over staging cultural, artistic and sporting events. People are banned from attending sporting events while cinemas and theatres are allowed to function only at 50% of their capacity.

Cinemas and theatre halls remain closed if the rate of infection in a certain region exceeds three to one thousand inhabitants in 14 days. Outdoor and indoor religious services are allowed with the observance of prevention rules.

In the following 30 days, interdictions regarding celebrations and parties in indoor and outdoor facilities remain in place, and so does the night curfew limiting travels between 23 and 5 hours.

People going to jobs or to offer assistance to the elderly and handicapped are exempted from the curfew regulations provided they can produce a sworn statement.  

After a first stage of the national vaccination campaign destined for the medical personnel, a second stage is expected to kick off later this week involving the elderly, people with chronic conditions and employees in Romania's key sectors of activity. Experts believe that collective immunity cannot be obtained unless 60-70% of the country's population is immunized.
