On June 30, 2023, Resolution No. 651 of the CMU entered into force, canceling the quarantine imposed in Ukraine on March 12, 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Taking into account that during the period of quarantine in Ukraine, changes were introduced to many legislative acts, the cancellation of quarantine, accordingly, terminates the effect of such changes.
First of all, the restrictions introduced by the Resolution of the CMU No. 1236, in particular:
• need for vaccination;
• mandatory wearing of medical masks in public places;
• crossing the state border only in the presence of a negative test result or a document confirming completion of a full course of vaccination;
• restrictions on the number of passengers during regular and non-regular transportation;
• compliance with strict rules established for the implementation of certain types of economic activity.
Also, the changes introduced during quarantine to the Civil and Economic Codes concerning:
• extension of the statute of limitations;
• bans on increasing the interest rate under the credit agreement;
• the possibility of reducing the fee for the use of real estate that could not be used in business activities due to quarantine;
• exemption from payment of fines for late payment under the credit agreement (loans).
In addition, the cancellation of the quarantine affected the norms of the Labor Code of Ukraine:
• vaccination for employees of educational institutions is now not mandatory;
• it is no longer possible to take unpaid leave for more than 15 calendar days per year;
• the term for applying to the court with a claim for the resolution of a labor dispute is again three months.
The changes also apply to tax relations, the medical field and a number of other relationships, which can be learned in detail from the specialists of Dynasty Law & Investment
