Due to the current record number of Covid-19 infections, Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow, Russia's capital, has declared a non-working week, with non-essential workers told to stay home, from June 15-19, 2021 ("To stop the growth of infections and to save people's lives, today I signed a decree providing for non-working days between June 15-19").

Earlier this year (2021-04-23), Russian President, Vladimir Putin, had similarly declared May 4-7, 2021, as non-working public holidays in Russia, due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The additional May 4-7, 2021, public holidays meshed in with the previously-declared list of 2021 Russian public holidays (2020-10-16, 2020-09-25 and 2020-09-10), to create a continuous period of public holidays from May 1-10, 2021.

Similarly, today's announcement meshes with the June 12-14 period of national public holidays, to create a 9-day period of public holidays in Moscow.
