Restaurants, Entertainment Facilities Not to Operate after 22:00 in Tbilisi & Imereti

"We have decided that from tomorrow, October 16, restaurants and all entertainment facilities in Tbilisi and Imereti will not operate after 22:00," Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated at a briefing after the government session on Thursday.

He noted this was to attempt to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

"However, everyone should understand that this is not enough: we all have our share of responsibility and this responsibility is distributed between the government, the authorities and private and state organizations," Gakharia said, urging organizations to work remotely as far as possible. 

As of October 15, 919 new cases of coronavirus were detected in Georgia, bringing the total number of infected people to 14,440.
