Fines for wearing masks incorrectly from November 21 in Ukraine
The law on penalties for the lack of masks will come into force in Ukraine on November 21. This was announced by the Voice of Ukraine.
It was noted that the guarantor Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved the draft law No. 1000-IX “On Amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses of Ukraine on Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)” by signing on November 19 and the document will enter into force the day after its publication.
Thus, citizens will be required to pay a 170 hryvnia fine if in public places or in transport they do not have a mask or wear it incorrectly- on their chin or leaving their nose open. In case of repeated violation, the amount will increase to 255 hryvnia.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy specified at what number of COVID-19 cases per day Ukraine faces severe quarantine.
The Cabinet of Ministers introduced free PCR tests in private laboratories and agreed on a new method of treating COVID-19 patients.
