«By the end of October, we plan to receive 350 thousand tourists. At the planning meeting, the readiness of the city to meet the guests was discussed. Compliance with all the requirements of Rospotrebnadzor and the sanitary condition of urban areas, including along the coastline, are under special control. Beach tenants should start dismantling and mothballing non-stationary retail facilities.This must be done quickly, without inconveniencing vacationers. Colleagues from Russian Railways were asked to strengthen control over the coastline along the tracks,» wrote Alexey Kopaigorodsky.
