From October 1, theaters, cinemas and concert halls will resume their work in Azerbaijan.


Theaters, cinemas and concert halls are reopening on Friday in Azerbaijan after more than a year and a half break as part of the easing of quarantine in the country. The corresponding resolution was adopted by the government of the republic last week, taking into account “an increase in the number of vaccinated citizens in the country, as well as a decrease in the dynamics of cases of infection.”

Eases also provide for the opening of libraries, recreation areas, children's entertainment centers, including shopping centers, which resumed work in early June. Persons over 18 years of age can only visit all of these sites if they have covid-passports. Another important requirement is that auditoriums in theaters, cinemas and concert halls should be no more than half full. In addition, the ban on work on weekends of public transport, including the Baku Metro, is lifted.

At the same time, the government is tightening the requirements related to vaccination. So, as of October 1, at least 80% of all employees of government agencies, medical, pharmaceutical and scientific institutions, educational institutions, trade and public catering enterprises, tourist facilities must receive a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine, or have certificates of immunity from COVID-19, which issued to those who have been ill with the infection. From Friday, covid-passports are mandatory for bus and taxi drivers, as well as passengers over 18 years of age using road and rail transport services when traveling to Baku and the regions of the country.

As of September 30, almost 3.8 million out of a population of 10 million have been vaccinated with two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
