Georgian will lift restrictions limiting the size of group gatherings to three on May 18, said Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia at a government meeting earlier today. 

The restriction came into force on March 31 and applied to both closed and open spaces.

The decision to lift the restriction was made based on the improved epidemiological situation in the country and the low rate of infection.

However, the restriction based on which no more than ten people are allowed to gather is still into force. 

Gakharia noted that transporting more than three people is still prohibited adding that “this restriction has a very important epidemiological significance based on doctors’ opinion.”

Per restrictions that came into force on May 31, private vehicles (as well as taxis) are only allowed to travel with a maximum of three people, including the driver, and two other people who must sit in the backseat.
