The government of Georgia recommends cafes, restaurants and bars to temporarily restrict “direct service to citizens” and to offer takeout and delivery services instead in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The decision was made at today’s Inter-agency Coordination Council meeting which was held at the Administration of the Government of Georgia. 

Night clubs, Tbilisi Opera, theatres in Tbilisi and sports venues have already closed.
