Quarantine in Ukraine

The adaptive quarantine was introduced on August 1. Ukrainian regions were split into the red, green, orange, and yellow zones depending on hospital load, the average number of PCR and ELISA tests, the ascertainment rate of COVID-19, and daily spread dynamics.

Quarantine-related curbs differ in each zone. The mildest ones are in the green zone, the regions included in the red zone have to introduce the toughest restrictive measures.

Updated quarantine zoning became effective in Ukraine on August 17. Kyiv was included in the yellow zone.
