The restaurant and club were also able to return to normal midnight business. From July 30th, it is no longer necessary to wear a mask on public transportation. Corona restrictions have been relaxed a bit, but by mid-August, operators such as restaurants and shopping centers in Moscow should have vaccinated more than 60% of their employees.
In Russia, 25.9% (up to 37.84 million) have been vaccinated once, and 18.3% (up to 26.77 million) have completed two vaccinations.

As the outbreak is re-spreading in Moscow and the number of new cases is increasing, Mayor Sobyanin announced new restrictions in mid-June. From June 28th, you will be required to show your QR code when you enter a restaurant in Moscow. Those who do not have a QR code cannot enter the restaurant.
Those who can get a QR code:
--People who have completed two Russian vaccinations
--People who have a history of infection within half a year
--People who have been tested negative by PCR within 3 days
You will need to fill out a special form on the Moscow Government Services Portal to receive the QR code. According to the restaurant industry, revenue has dropped to 75%, so we have decided that it is not necessary to show the QR code when using the terrace seats of restaurants. Many Moscow people now have a nice summer time eating on the terrace.

There are many buildings in Moscow that retain their old-fashioned look. Among them, the high-class grocery store called "Elyseeevsky", which has a history of 120 years, is probably famous.
"Elisséeffsky" is said to be the most beautiful grocery store in the world and is always listed in Russian guidebooks. The interior of the store has a neo-Baroque style and retains the history and atmosphere of the early 20th century.
Although it is a traditional store, it has evolved as a modern supermarket. It has been run by a supermarket company that runs "Rue Pulsar" since 2005, but very disappointing news was announced earlier this month. "Elisséeffsky" will close on April 11th this year because the ownership dispute with the city of Moscow cannot be resolved.
The Moscow government is trying to preserve it as a cultural property, but for now the future of the store is unknown.
