According to the circular sent out by the department, the following activities will be allowed:

For example, in concert halls, only every third seat can be occupied, including VIP zones.

In addition, organizers must ensure that the principle of social distance is observed at entrances and exits, as well as in queues at the checkout. At the same time, the online purchase of tickets is encouraged. Spectators must wear masks, which are allowed to be removed after taking a seat.
