The period of state-mandated days off work for non-essential workers will end after May 12, Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Putin made the announcement Monday at his latest videoconference meeting with medical officials, ministers and governors on the state of the coronavirus situation in the country.

The Russian president first announced a period of nationwide 'non-working' days for non-essential workers in late March, extending them through the month of April and into early May as part of the country's effort to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
