Quarantine upon arrival in Belarus
The big problem of this year was the coronavirus epidemic. Many countries closed their borders, some even announced quarantines, which contributed to a decrease in the number of infections. Belarus did not undertake an emergency peace, quarantine bypassed the Belarusians, but still some restrictions were introduced and are still in effect. Today we will tell you about the rules of conduct for returning from other countries to Belarus.
Preventive measures at Minsk National Airport
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the latest discovered virus of the coronavirus family. Until December 2019, no one knew about the disease, until an outbreak of the disease occurred in the Chinese town of Wuhan. Soon, the disease affected all countries, as a result of which a pandemic was declared in the world. Over time, many countries began to actively fight the increase in the incidence, and today the virus has practically disappeared. But precautions are still being taken.
Within the framework of the program to reduce the growth of the incidence of Cobid-19 in Belarus, Minsk Airport is actively working with the Ministry of Health and customs authorities. The rules of conduct for visitors to the airport and employees have been determined, and measures to prevent the spread of the virus have been outlined.
The first priority is to check newcomers for obvious signs of illness. Then each visitor is given sanitary and anti-epidemic measures.
To prevent contact in some sectors of arrival, thermal imagers can be monitored, allowing you to measure the temperature remotely. If you have the slightest questions about the incidence, the patient is handed over to the doctors. Such passengers go through passport processing and customs procedures separately.
In addition to the agreed norms of behavior of employees upon arrival of passengers, the airport undergoes daily cleaning and sanitary measures with the use of disinfectants. The entire airport is equipped with disinfectants and air recirculators.

You can get laboratory testing for the presence of coronavirus right at the airport. Testing is carried out by ELISA - enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
