Citizens over 65 years of age are strictly forbidden to leave their homes. They are only allowed to visit pharmacies and grocery stores located near their places of residence.

According to the commission, the risk of infection with COVID-19 is very high during charity events. Therefore, individual charity events have been temporarily suspended from April 1 of the current year.

Tashkent administration will organize a Sponsorship Coordination Center in the pavilion of the National Exhibition Complex “Uzexpomarkaz”. The same centers will be created in Nukus and other regions of the country.

In these centers, the regional departments of the Ministry for Mahalla and Family Affairs will provide information on families in need, elderly people, people with disabilities and other sections of the population who need help.

Individuals and legal entities carry out complimentary assistance through these centers with strict compliance with quarantine requirements.

Representatives of non-profit organizations, as well as volunteers, who wish to personally provide help to those in need, are invited to close cooperation in charity events.
