In addition to food stores, also pharmacies, veterinary clinics, opticians and stores selling orthopedic equipment will be allowed to continue operating.

Educational establishments will work remotely and kindergartens will have to except children if their parents have no possibilities to work from home.

These conditions will be in place until January 31.
