In Moscow, from September 27, the work of social assistance for elderly Muscovites over 65 and suffering from chronic diseases will resume, who must comply with a home regime due to the coronavirus from Monday. “Starting tomorrow, the Moscow Government will resume the work of the system of social services and support for citizens who must stay at home,” Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on his website on Saturday. He recalled that from Monday, elderly Muscovites over 65 and citizens suffering from chronic diseases should stay at home. “This measure will protect the people most vulnerable to the virus,” the mayor added.
Social workers will deliver food, medicine, medical products, pet food and other essential items to Muscovites free of charge. To do this, you need to leave a request to the hotline operator. Home delivery of medicines on preferential prescriptions to citizens registered at polyclinics will be carried out on an initiative basis. You don't need to come for them yourself, you don't need to submit an application. Also, with the help of the hotline, Muscovites suffering from chronic diseases and pregnant women who are also recommended to stay at home will be able to get sick leave.
