"The Department of Control of Quality and Safety of Goods and Services of Nur-Sultan monitors compliance with quarantine measures at educational facilities. There are 91 secondary schools in the city, including 78 public schools, 12 private and 1 specialized. They are fully monitored. During the inspections, violations were revealed in 31 schools, which is 34%, in terms of non-observance of the mask regime by the principals and teaching staff of schools, as well as by the parents of students. In one of the schools, the director was brought to administrative responsibility," Pralieva said.

She recalled that since July 5, strict restrictive quarantine measures have been introduced in the city due to massive cases of registration of coronavirus infection.

"On August 17, in connection with a decrease in the registration of cases of coronavirus infection, a gradual relaxation of restrictive and quarantine measures began. At the same time, business entities and individuals violate measures to observe social distancing, wear masks, and the ban on holding mass events is not respected. During the period of introduction of restrictive and quarantine measures, 550 fines were imposed for a total of 122,526,468 tenge," the speaker continued.
