Despite the fact that the access control is going to be introduced only in Moscow and the Moscow region, there is a possibility that the capital practice will gradually be introduced in the regions. Obviously, this is why the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications released the application “State Services.” Stop coronavirus' for mobile platforms. If you use iPhone, then we invite you to read the analysis of the application features from colleagues from Apple Insider.ru, and here you will also find detailed instructions on working with the version for Android. Do not neglect her, because leaving the house with a pass in your city can be entered just as quickly and unexpectedly.
The introduction of special passes required a technological solution to this issue
The main purpose of the application 'State services. Stop coronavirus' is to provide Russian users with special passes to leave their homes. Despite the fact that the service works on the basis of the 'Gosuslug' platform, it is not necessary to have an account there to use the application. It's just that if you already have it, it will be easier for you, since you don't have to retype all your data manually. Fortunately, there are not so many of them: passport details, date and place of birth, as well as your selfie and passport photo. Fill in and get a pass to go to work or wherever you need it.
An important clarification: the application 'State services. Stop coronavirus' will not work in Moscow, but is intended for the regions of Russia, the authorities of which will decide to introduce an access regime by analogy with the capital. That is, in fact, now the service is useless, but, given that over time, Moscow practices are spreading to the periphery, it is likely that in the foreseeable future users from Russian cities will have to order a pass through the State Services. Therefore, here is a detailed instruction for you. Just in case.
For Muscovites there is a separate system for issuing passes from the mayor of Moscow
Muscovites will be able to issue a pass for moving around the city by personal, official or public transport on the website of the Moscow Mayor's Office, or by calling +7 (495) 777-77-77. A pass is not required for walking.

- To a store or pharmacy

- Long trip
I tried to joke and indicated the reason for leaving the house 'Going to visit', believing that the application will deny the exit, but, as it turned out, it does not care where I go at all.
Leaving home in quarantine
Obviously, the system for obtaining passes will still be finalized.
The application independently calculates how long you can be out of the house in quarantine, depending on the reason for leaving. True, the not always available time period looks logical. Let's say I had 12 hours to go to the store. I do not know on what basis' State services. Stop coronavirus' this time is calculated, but, in my opinion, this is frankly a lot even to go to IKEA, which is usually located somewhere on the outskirts, not to mention the usual trip to the nearest store.
The nearest grocery store is indeed about 100 meters from my house. However, as you can imagine, shops are diverse, and in my case it is not Magnit or Auchan, but Red and White, where, as a rule, it is difficult to find any products for normal nutrition. Therefore, I have to go to the 'Lenta' located 400 meters away. But even going there with a return back would take me an hour and a half if I went shopping on foot. But, in fairness, I will say that at the time of publication of the publication, the timer does not work yet, because the authorities have not yet announced the official launch of the service, which means that the time periods can still be adjusted downward.
