Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova suggested that employers transfer unvaccinated and non-COVID-19 employees over 60 years of age to remote work for a period of at least four weeks so that these citizens would be vaccinated. This was stated by the Deputy Prime Minister at a meeting of the presidium of the Coordinating Council for Combating the Spread of a new coronavirus infection, according to a transcript posted on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers.

T.Golikova suggested contacting Russian President Vladimir Putin with a proposal to introduce non-working days on the entire territory of the Russian Federation from October 30, 2021 to November 7, 2021 inclusive. At the same time, according to her, it is necessary to introduce the admission of vaccinated and ill citizens to individual facilities only upon presentation of a QR code.

In addition, T. Golikova called for monitoring compliance with all restrictive measures. She also strongly recommends that the regions immediately take decisions on unemployed and unvaccinated pensioners with a request to stay at home on self-isolation and go out on the streets only if absolutely necessary.

T.Golikova also suggested contacting employers so that they would provide employees with two days off for vaccination.
