Krasnodar, 23 July. The first in Russia COVID-free beach has reportedly opened in Sochi. It belongs to the Lazurnaya Hotel, Khosta District. The beach is fenced and furnished with special identification signs.
“We opened the first in Russia COVID-free beach with a well-developed infrastructure, to let its visitors be fully confident for their safety. This is our pilot project which, as we believe, will have a positive feedback of the tourists and local people,” Deputy Mayor Inna Petukhova said.
The beach is open not only for the visitors of the hotel who are now obliged to present medical proof of not having COVID-19 when checking into the hotel. It admits anybody who will produce such evidence – it can be a vaccination certificate, a medical proof of recovering from COVID-19 in the last 180 days, or a negative PCR test less than three days old. The children accompanied by adults will not need to present such medical documents. This season, 188 beaches are open in Sochi, of which 126 are municipally owned ones.
