Indoors, social distancing is still required and masks and gloves must be worn.
Metropolitan registry offices have switched to normal operation. Now you can visit the registry office or the Wedding Palace without an appointment, and restrictions on the number of guests have been canceled on marriage registrations.
“The improving epidemiological situation allows us to gradually remove and ease restrictions in the city. Both the capital’s registry offices and wedding palaces are returning to their usual working hours. To visit them no longer require an appointment. We have also removed the previous limitation on the number of guests at marriage registration ceremonies. Newlyweds can again invite more than five guests to their main holiday. But I very much ask the townspeople not to forget that the virus has not disappeared anywhere, so it is still important to maintain social distance and use personal protective equipment, ”she said.
Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
Masks and gloves are still a must on a wedding day. It is also important to maintain a social distance in which the maximum number of guests must be taken into account. In the departments of the registry office there are special markings for keeping the distance.
Specialists regularly disinfect the premises. The employees are provided with masks and respirators. Visitors can use antiseptic agents.
Period of special operation
During the special working hours of the registry offices, marriage registration took place in a non-festive atmosphere without the presence of guests and photographers.
Despite the current circumstances, the newlyweds tried to make their wedding day memorable. Live broadcasts on social networks, as well as video conferences with family and friends, have become popular. Couples observed safety measures and came to the registry office wearing creative masks and gloves.
