“The draft decision has been circulated in the government, and I think it will be decided to extend the quarantine,” she said.

According to the acting Minister, the extension is necessary, because the decision has created a toolkit that allows to implement strict or minor restrictions.

She added that the requirement for a PCR test for crossing the Armenian border is also covered by the decision on quarantine.
