As of the morning of 7 March, Ukraine will stop letting in people with high temperature from occupied Donbas, the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) HQ has said.

Temperature screening will be done at checkpoints on the line of contact.

If a person is found to be feverish, he or she will be hospitalized or simply denied entry (if he or she is not registered in the government-controlled territory).

The JFO asked Ukrainians not to visit the occupied territory unless absolutely necessary because there are not enough medical personnel and medicines.
