Be warned that now municipal police officers are constantly patrolling around and warning residents who are not supposed to be out to go home and, if this is not done, they can impose fines. For example, this Friday 23 people in Varna were fined because they were violating the ban on visiting parks and gardens in connection with measures to restrict the spread of coronavirus. Violators have been issued acts and the penalty provided for this is BGN 5,000. These patrols are taking place not only in Varna but in other cities as well so we advise our readers to abide by the emergency state protocols and only go out when needed – for shopping, going to work or taking your dog for a walk. For instance, in Veliko Tarnovo district 15 acts were drawn up by police officers just for a day.
The Municipality of Pavlikeni has created a special section with information in English on their site to assist all foreign people residing on the territory of the Municipality. There you will find translated the orders of the Mayor of the Municipality, the measures taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, practical information and health advice. The information will be updated periodically. Pavlikeni Municipality is the first in Bulgaria to specifically create a section with English-translated information to assist foreigners in the current emergency.
Again we would like to advise everyone to use personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks and to disinfect your hands before and after handling anything outside.
