Large furniture and construction stores, hairdressing, and beauty salons will also close. New limits on people will apply in commercial establishments, at the markets, or the post office. 1 person per 15 m2 - in small shops (up to 100 m2); 1 person per 20 m2 - in stores over 100 m2. There will be a new quota of people in places of worship - 20 m2 per person.
