Quarantine requirements will be in place for a long time, according to Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia. In her words, opening borders is obviously a risky step, and precisely strict border control measures have resulted in a low number of coronavirus cases in the country.
"Quarantine rules are still effective inside the country, and everyone, including Georgian citizens, arriving in the country are subject to a two-week quarantine, and self-isolation in some rare cases. This applies to the representatives of the diplomatic corps or some people in need of special treatment. Under other circumstances, when a person visits the country to do business here, he or she is tested first and assisted so that his business is done here, and our citizens are protected against the virus.
The quarantine will not be lifted for a rather long time here, and borders will not be opened either on July 15 or August 15," Gabunia declared.
