On March 20, 2020, the Cabinet of Ministers introduced a strict quarantine, which has been tightened and eased at different times throughout the year. There was also an SMS permission system that allows citizens to go out of their premises for three hours. The government also introduced a penalty for failure to use mask. It is mandatory to wear mask in all indoor and outdoor spaces.
