Some regional centers in Ukraine are ignoring a government decision to introduce the so-called "weekend quarantine."
In particular, the relevant curbs will not be imposed in the town of Rivne this weekend, as reported by the local newspaper 7 Days with reference to the statement of Rivne Mayor Volodymyr Khomko.
The reason for such a move is that the local emergency commission, which is supposed to amend the quarantine regime locally, will only meet on November 16.
