The authorities of the Sakhalin Region will temporarily suspend flights between the region and Japanese Hokkaido from March 5. Measures will be taken to prevent the entry of coronavirus. The restriction will be valid until further notice.

“An emergency was declared on Hokkaido Island, so a decision was made to suspend flights. We warn all residents of the Sakhalin Region who are planning to fly to the coronavirus-disadvantaged area that, upon their return, they will definitely be placed under quarantine for at least two weeks, ”said the Minister of Health of the Sakhalin Region Vladimir Yushchuk.

If the returnees do not have signs of illness, they will be sent to home quarantine, tourists with fever and other even minor signs will be placed in isolators. Now the passengers and crew of the aircraft, recently flown in from Japan, are at home. Everyone was issued a sick leave and banned from leaving home. Violators will be held administratively liable.

If the situation with coronavirus worsens in other cities in Japan, the Sakhalin authorities will initiate a suspension of flights with these territories. On Hokkaido, the coronavirus was confirmed in 66 people.
