Summary of the epidemiological situation in Dubna. Published on 09 June 2020

Dear colleagues,

All Dubna citizens are worried about the real epidemiological situation in the city that can be characterized by the number of infected, cured and deceased people. No doubt that it is possible to find any information on the internet. However, various websites and various departments provide different information about the situation in Dubna.

For example, the website https://coronavirus-monitoring.ru/regiony-rossii/koronavirus-v-dubne-8-ijunja-2020/ states that:

“Dubna is located in the Moscow region where there is the following COVID-19 statistics as of 8 June 2020:

  • 339 people were infected
  • 211 people recovered
  • 3 infected people passed away.”

This statistics is at least two times higher than that on the official website of the Administration of Dubna saying that: “According to the data presented by Mosoblshtab and Rospotrebnadzor, 144 people have been found infected in Dubna as of 06.06.2020 since the beginning of the pandemic.”

Deputy Head of the Dubna Council of Deputies, Assistant to JINR Chief Engineer, Candidate of Physics and Mathematics E. D. Uglov commented on the situation:

This website is not official. It is a poorly written aggregator of information. It is not clear where the data is taken. It provides both correct statistics (for regions in general) from official websites and fictional numbers as in Dubna. Moreover, there is even a mismatch of data on the website itself.

As for official statistics. The Administration and the City Headquarters publish news on the website naukograd-dubna.ru. Deputies have agreed to publish official statistics basing on the combined data from Medical Unit No.9 and the Dubna City Hospital.

In the initial period, the statistics presented on the naukograd-dubna.ru website was more accurate compared to the official web page of the Moscow region https://covid.mz.mosreg.ru/, as far as they took into account only the statistics presented by the Dubna Hospital, without considering the Medical Unit. However, since the end of May, everything was corrected and the statistics on this website now coincides with the summarized information.

Head of the Polyclinic of the Medical Unit No.9 Candidate of Medical Sciences A. N. Kovalev informs about the situation in the area of responsibility of the Medical Unit:

As of 08.06.2020, 64 people attached to the Medical Unit No.9 have positive results of the RNA detection of the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection.

14 people were hospitalized with the new coronavirus infection. 4 of them were sent to the FMBA organization of Russia. 7 patients were released in a satisfactory condition. One patient passed away.

20 patients undergo only a mild course of the disease. They and their family members are isolated and examined at home. Moreover, 51 people who have contacted with virus carriers are also under observation.

521 people were removed from medical supervision, 36 people recovered.

2,012 tests were made to detect RNA of SARS-CoV-2 among working people.

For any inquires related to the new coronavirus infection, please contact the epidemiologist Lyudmila Gennadievna Zimenkova (tel. +7 (496) 214-80-93) and Head of the polyclinic Alexander Nikolaevich Kovalev (tel. +7 (496) 214-80-91).

According to the JINR Operational Headquarters, 13 infected JINR employees have been found, most of whom have already recovered.

Starting from 27 May, moving using transport around Moscow will be possible only with digital passes issued directly for moving in the capital, and the use of passes for the Moscow region from this date will be impossible (including those issued by JINR through public services).

For this reason, digital passes for moving around Moscow for work purposes (for more than one day) will be issued directly by JINR:

  • Digital passes will be issued by JINR only for employees who continue their work at the Institute’s workplaces being transferred to a remote mode of work, but periodically involved in work directly at the workplace.
  • First and foremost, applications for registration of digital passes will be submitted for those employees who previously received digital passes for moving in the Moscow region through the Gosuslugi portal (about 1,700 employees).

Digital passes for moving around Moscow for work purposes which were previously registered by employees will be annulled by JINR. In addition, JINR decision makers will regularly monitor applications for long-term digital passes for moving around Moscow for work purposes, and all passes registered directly by employees will be annulled.

All necessary information on the registration of long-term passes for moving around Moscow for work purposes will be reported to heads of the JINR divisions.

About the JINR’s working regime from 1st to 11th May. Published on 30 April 2020

Dear colleagues,

The JINR Operational Headquarters for preventing the spread of the coronavirus infection COVID-19 informs the Institute’s staff of the following.

According to the Order of the President of the Russian Federation No. 294 of 28.04.2020 “About prolongation of measures taken to ensure epidemiological welfare of citizens in the territory of the Russian Federation in view of the spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19)”, an order of JINR No. 244 was signed today proclaiming days of 1-5 and 9-11 May as days-off. On 6 – 8 May, the work of the Institute will be continued in a mode earlier established during April.

We would like to highlight that districts of the Tver region neighbouring with Dubna (Kimry, Kimry district, Konakovo district) have an unfavourable situation with the spread of the coronavirus infection and the number of infected people several times exceeds that in our city. Due to this reason, as well as taking into account the fact that there were no restrictions imposed in the Tver region on work of public places, we ask you to restrain from visiting public places in the mentioned districts.

The Governor of the Moscow Region prolonged the earlier introduced high-alert mode for the period up to 11 May and we therefore inform you of the following:

1. All earlier introduced restrictions (self-isolation, staying out of the place of residence, work of particular organizations and others) are prolonged up to 11 May.
2. The order of issuance of digital passes for moving around the Moscow region for the period of 1 – 11 May is prolonged with some complements:
2.1 It is possible to issue only one pass for a particular period to commute to work (or for work) using the transport;
2.2. All earlier issued digital passes to commute to work (or for work) are automatically prolonged up to 4 May. It is necessary to issue new digital passes or prolong already existing ones for the period of 5 – 11 May by oneself;
2.3. It is possible to issue a digital pass for moving by transport registered abroad. Everyone who has earlier issued the digital pass for transport with foreign car license plates shall present the demanded information about such a vehicle on the state services portal (https://propusk.gosuslugi.ru) from 1 to 4 May.

In response to the increased cases of annulment of digital passes for work issued on the Moscow Government portal https://www.mos.ru, we recommend issuing digital passes for wok using the state services portal (https://propusk.gosuslugi.ru), which has special apps for mobile phones, or via SMS. We ask employees who got their passes from the Institute through the state services portal to get digital passes by themselves due to the risk of pass annulment.

About cameras and fines for using cars as of 22 April 2020

Dear colleagues,

  1. Due to the tightening of the control of the self-isolation regime, regional surveillance cameras have been installed in the city. They are controlled neither by the City Administration nor by our Department of Internal Affairs and General Administration for Traffic Safety. These cameras automatically read car licence plates and send them to the region. If there is no pass issued for a car, the owner will automatically receive a fine. The system started working today. Thanks to the support of the City Administration, we achieved the delay the issuance of fines for 2-3 days. Nevertheless, all JINR employees using personal transport should issue passes for themselves and their vehicles on their own. To do this, it is necessary to send SMS either to the Moscow centre using the number 7377 or to the Regional centre using the number 0250. See the instructions below:

    To the Moscow centre using the number 7377, to the website mos.ru:

    Brief instruction to get the pass using SMS to the Moscow centre:

    Send to 7377 the following text (XXXX series of passport, YYYYYY number of passport, A000AA00 number of licence plate of vehicle, JINR INN 9909125356):

    Пропуск*1*1*XXXX*YYYYYY*A000AA00***9909125356*ОИЯИ

    More details are available via the link: https://www.mos.ru/news/item/72520073/

  2. SMS to the Regional centre, the number 0250, website mosreg.ru: Brief instruction to get the SMS pass in the Regional Centre:

    Send an SMS to 0250 using the phone with the following text (XXXX series, YYYYYY number of passport, DD.DD.DDDD date of birth, A000AA00 number of licence plate of vehicle JINR INN 9909125356):

Information on coronavirus for JINR employees as of 21 April 2020

Dear colleagues,

  1. Since last Monday, we have started preventive testing of the JINR staff jointly with the Medical Unit No.9. First of all, we check staff members who ensure the operation of the most important and dangerous facilities and systems, as well as those who have had contacts with already infected citizens of Dubna. Moreover, we control those who continue to manage and coordinate the JINR services and staff in their workplaces, support contacts with the Dubna City Administration and city organizations and thus are under a greater risk of being infected with the coronavirus. Last week, as a result of it, tests of two staff members of JINR were positive. The Medical Unit No.9 promptly disinfected workplaces of these employees and tested their colleagues with whom the infected employees were in contact. After repeated tests of these two employees, the coronavirus infection was not found.
  2. Please, pay attention that the situation in the neighboring Tver region is unfavorable. There are already 67 infected people in Kimry +9 in the Kimry district. 83 infected people were found in Konakovo. We recommend refraining from visiting Konakovo and Kimry.
  3. Due to the stricter rules on movement introduced in Moscow and the Moscow region, we hereby inform that the staff of JINR and other backbone companies of Dubna should only have their IDs or passes for free movement around the city.

OFFICIAL INFORMATION
of the JINR Directorate on the current situation and the measures taken
in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research
to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection COVID-19,
as well as on work of the Institute from 13 to 30 April 2020

In order to inform the staff of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, we hereby state the following:

The JINR Operational Headquarters for preventing the spread of coronavirus infection (Chaired by JINR Assistant Director G. D. Shirkov) carries out a daily monitoring of the situation with the incidence, maintains contacts with federal, regional and city governmental bodies and medical organizations, informs the staff about the current situation and gives recommendations, as well as takes measures aimed to minimize the risks of the JINR staff incidence with the disease.

In order to ensure the safety of the operation of nuclear and radiation hazardous objects of JINR, the COVID-19 testing of the staff members employed at them is organized. Moreover, it is now being considered to take additional measures to protect the staff of crucially important objects.

Basing on the decisions previously taken by the Director of the Institute to transfer a part of the staff to remote work, as well as on the regulations of the Russian Federation and the Moscow region, each division has selected employees who can work remotely, as well as employees whose work cannot be performed in a remote mode due to the necessity of the Institute to operate continuously.

Nowadays, in order to prevent further spread of the coronavirus infection, the Governor of the Moscow region made a decision to suspend a considerable range of activities, except for that performed continuously, for the period of 13 – 19 April 2020. Basing on this decision and taking into account the dynamics of the COVID-19 spread in Dubna, in order to decrease the risks of the incidence with the disease among our staff, the JINR Directorate took an unprecedented decision for all 64 years of the organization’s existence to suspend scientific and educational activities in the premises in the territory of the Institute for the period of 13 – 30 April. This will cause essential changes in the work of a considerable number of structural divisions and employees. At the same time, to maintain the operation of the Institute, our employees, those who support the continuous processes ensuring the maintenance of the JINR infrastructure, finance planning and accounting processes, including accounting and payment of salaries, holding the first-priority purchases and payments, will continue to work. In their turn, heads of the divisions should take measures recommended by federal sanitary bodies to ensure safe conditions for working employees.

Up to the end of April, all construction works on the objects of the Institute will be suspended, except for the most important works conducted at the NICA complex, a part of the “Nauka” national project, as well as urgent repairs.

Due to the suspension of scientific, educational activities and construction works, the order of the admission to the DLNP and VBLHEP sites will change since 15 April. Employees will be allowed to pass to the sites only with JINR IDs and in case they are in the lists of employees admitted to JINR agreed with the JINR leaders.

Due to the current unfavorable situation with the COVID-19 incidence in the Moscow region, the permit regime will be introduced in the territory of the region since 15 April. It means that it will be possible to go out of the place of residence only on the grounds expressly provided for in the Governor’s decree.

The Dubna City Administration and leaders of the Institute have reached an understanding that JINR employees will be granted the right to freely commute to work in Dubna by transport if they present their passports and official IDs or JINR passes. In case employees do not have such documents, they should present special certificates issued by the HR office. For these purposes, foreign employees should carry the ID, the accreditation document (the MFA card) or the residence permit instead of the passport.

Nonresident employees of JINR who commute to work by private and public transport are required to obtain a digital pass (the pass is issued once for a period until 30 April 2020).

Please note that for walking out of the house (to the store, pharmacy, with a dog, etc.) no passes are required. At the same time, the JINR Directorate and JINR Operational Headquarters strongly recommend that all employees and residents of Dubna maintain the maximum self-isolation mode and minimize any exits from the house.

When filling in the information to obtain the digital pass for commuting to work, JINR employees must specify the full name of our organization (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research) or abbreviated name (JINR), as well as INN 9909125356.

The need to move around the city on transport for other purposes not related to work, will require the registration of a one-day digital pass, the cases and procedure for registration of which is specified by the Governor of the Moscow Region.

If you need to leave the city, you will need to obtain the digital pass in accordance with the established procedure, as well as always have an identity card with you. If you need to travel to Moscow or other districts of the Moscow region by official vehicle, you will also need to obtain the appropriate digital pass. The JINR Directorate and JINR Operational Headquarters call for the complete exclusion of any departures from Dubna, except for extreme necessity or for medical reasons.

The digital pass issued in the Moscow region is valid in Moscow, as well as a pass issued in Moscow is valid the Moscow region.

In order to resolve any issues related to obtaining digital passes, primarily for foreign employees, as well as in case of problems with governmental authorities when moving around the Moscow region and Moscow during the permit regime, JINR employees can contact the JINR Operational Headquarters directly by email: shtab@jinr.ru, and foreign employees can also contact the JINR Science Organization & International Cooperation Office (SO&IC Office).

Taking into account the difficult situation of employees and veterans of the Institute over 65 years old, who, due to the self-isolation regime established in March, cannot leave their places of residence, our young colleagues who are members of AYSS have independently organized a volunteer movement and help retirees in purchasing and delivering food and basic necessities to their homes. With the support of the JINR Operational Headquarters, JINR employees were informed about the possibility of receiving assistance, and interaction with various departments of JINR was established.

Since the incidence of the coronavirus continues to increase in the Moscow region and the number of fatalities is increasing, the JINR Directorate urges employees to faithfully comply with the measures restricting movements, as well as recommendations on the use of personal protective equipment, disinfection, and social distance.

Dear colleagues! In this difficult and challenging time, not only for our Institute but also for all the JINR Member States, the JINR staff shows its firmness, high professionalism and ability to find the right solutions in extraordinary situations, participation in solving common problems, respect, and careful attitude to colleagues. There is no doubt that together we will pass this difficult challenge and preserve our multinational team which is the foundation for the intellectual capital of JINR as of a world-class scientific center, and continue to perform advanced scientific research. I wish you and your close ones health, patience and optimism!

14 April 2020

OFFICIAL INFORMATION
on the current situation and measures taken in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, as well as on the peculiarities of the Institute’s work during non-working days from 30 March to 30 April 2020

In order to inform the staff of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research about the measures taken, we hereby inform you of the following.

On the basis of the Order of the JINR Director of 16.03.2020, in order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, the transfer of a part of the staff to the remote working regime for the period up to 31 May 2020 was timely organized. All public events, including conferences and seminars, were cancelled. Sending employees for business trips and hiring citizens from foreign countries were banned.

As a result of these measures, more than half of the JINR administrative staff, as well as most of the scientific staff not directly involved in work on the operating accelerators were transferred to the remote working regime.

By order of the JINR Operational Headquarters for preventing the spread of the coronavirus infection (headed by JINR Assistant Director G. D. Shirkov, shtab@jinr.ru), measures aimed at the disease prevention were implemented in all the divisions. They included a regular cleaning of surfaces in public areas using antiseptics, provision of personal protection equipment, setting up of decontaminating facilities. Non-contact thermometers and thermal imagers to measure the temperature of working employees were supplied to divisions. All information concerning the Institute’s staff is officially sent by the JINR Operational Headquarters to all the emails in the jinr.ru domain (about 4,800 email addresses).

The Governor of the Moscow Region decided to introduce the high-alert mode in the territory of the Moscow Region, as well as to suspend the activities of some categories of objects. Thus, activities of the JINR Cultural Centre “Mir”, the “Archimedes” swimming pool and other cultural and sports objects were suspended. Several cafes, restaurants, canteens of the Institute, as well as the hotel “Dubna” were temporarily closed.

Moreover, the work of the JINR SPA & Resort Hotel “Dubna” in Alushta was suspended up to 1 June so that to comply with a relevant order of the Head of the Republic of Crimea.

Due to the relevant order issued by the President of Russia, the period from 30 March to 8 April 2020 was declared non-working with salary retention in the Institute. It is necessary to highlight that JINR is a continuously operating organization and it has objects with nuclear energy use, including the IBR-2 reactor. There are also divisions ensuring their nuclear and radiation safety, as well as the continuous power transmission, the production and supply of utilities, including to citizens of Dubna. Moreover, JINR divisions provide communication services, fire alarm services, physical protection, perform urgent construction work. In this respect, a considerable part of the Institute in the period of announced non-working days continued its work on a regular basis. The most important construction projects of the Institute, namely the NICA complex and the extensive repair of the building No. 3 of the Hotel “Dubna”, were not also affected.

The period from 4 to 30 April has also been declared non-working by the Presidential Order. Thus, the Institute has the challenge to organize work of divisions taking into account the necessity of carrying out the full range of functions of our organization: scientific, infrastructural, administrative. In this regard, the regulation for work order of administrative and scientific JINR divisions, the interaction between them, the document flow, decision-making and management of all the divisions will be shortly adopted for the whole non-working period taking into account the necessity to comply with serious measures of protection against the coronavirus and the possibility of the remote working regime.

Another significant task the Institute continues to solve in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, diplomatic and consular bodies of Russia and other JINR Member States is the return Dubna of our staff members who are currently in other countries and are not able to return due to a significant reduction in the number of flights and the introduction of other restrictive measures.

The management of the Institute is in constant contact with the Federal Medicobiological Agency of the Russian Federation, the Dubna City Administration and medical institutions of the city and therefore promptly receives information about the current situation with the incidence of COVID-19 and decisions taken by federal, regional and local authorities, including information about possible restrictions for citizens. On my behalf, JINR Chief Engineer B. N.

OFFICIAL INFORMATION
on the current situation in preventing the COVID-19 coronavirus in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research
17 March 2020

In view of the deteriorating situation regarding the incidence of the COVID-19 coronavirus both in the Russian Federation and in other countries of the world, as well as to inform JINR employees about the measures taken to prevent its spread, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research reports the following.

The JINR Directorate pays considerable attention to health of employees and their families, as well as guests of JINR. In this regard, since the beginning of the extensive spread of infection of the COVID-19 coronavirus in the territory of the People’s Republic of China in January 2020, it was decided to cancel all business trips of the JINR employees to the PRC, including the recall of employees who were already in the PRC.

After receiving information about the unfavorable epidemiological background for this disease in a number of European countries, in order to prevent the disease of JINR employees, it was decided to terminate current business trips to these countries, as well as to cancel planned trips, including sending employees to CERN, FAIR and other scientific centers.

According to the Order of the JINR Director of 13 February 2020, all returned from foreign business trips from countries with an unfavorable situation for the incidence of coronavirus infection were placed under a fourteen-day self-isolation regime recommended by the Federal Biomedical Agency (FMBA); they are under the regular supervision of medical specialists of Medical Unit 9.

As of today, according to the results of medical laboratory studies, none of the JINR employees in Dubna has been found to have the coronavirus infection. At the same time, some of the JINR employees who returned from foreign business trips less than two weeks ago continue to stay under the regime of self-isolation and supervision of doctors.

After the World Health Organization formally declared the COVID-19 coronavirus a worldwide pandemic, it was decided to establish the JINR Operational Headquarters to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection. The JINR Operational Headquarters are chaired by JINR Assistant Director, RAS Corresponding Member G. D. Shirkov and comprise representatives of JINR and Medical Unit 9. The JINR Operational Headquarters work in continuous operation mode and regularly interacts with the management of the FMBA of the Russian Federation and the Interregional Department No. 21, the Administration of the city of Dubna, Medical Unit 9, the Dubna City Hospital. The JINR Operational Headquarters also inform the JINR Directorate several times a day about the current state of the disease and the proposed measures against the coronavirus.

Taking into account the rapid spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and the restrictive measures taken by the Russian Federation, the JINR Director issued an order at the suggestion of the JINR Operational Headquarters aimed at minimizing the risk of JINR employees contracting the coronavirus which includes exceptional measures, such as a ban on sending employees on business trips and on hiring citizens from foreign countries to work at JINR, as well as the cancellation of all mass events, including conferences and seminars. It was also decided to organize remote work in the shortest possible time for those JINR employees whose work can be performed without staying at the workplace and to form a list of positions of employees who have to stay at the workplace.

In addition, the restrictions proposed by the JINR Operational Headquarters on the work of JINR sports and cultural divisions, public catering services, as well as on visiting the Institute’s infrastructure by any outside parties will be put into effect soon.

Dear colleagues, due to the frequent appearance of false information about the situation with the COVID-19 coronavirus in JINR and our city, on behalf of the JINR Directorate, I urge you to remain calm, be reasonable when studying various information sources and take into account only official information from JINR, state authorities and local governments.

For its part, the JINR Operational Headquarters for the prevention of the coronavirus spread have been tasked to regularly inform JINR employees about the current situation with the incidence and recommended methods for preventing the COVID-19 coronavirus disease.

JINR Director, RAS Academician
Victor Matveev

Information on coronavirus for JINR employees
13 March 2020

The health of employees and guests of the Institute is the highest priority of the JINR Directorate. Please get acquainted with up-to-date information about the current situation and measures taken by the Directorate to prevent the spread of infections and to ensure health defence of our multinational staff.

At the moment, no cases of the COVID-2019 virus have been registered in the Institute.

Employees returning from countries with the poor epidemiological situation are put in the quarantine for 14 days under medical supervision.

Since the first cases of virus infection in China registered, the Institute took timely and efficient measures to recall employees from business trips and put them in quarantine.

To minimize the risks of the coronavirus spread in the JINR territory, the city, and the country, we ask all the JINR staff members to take the information below responsibly.

1. We ask all the Institute’s employees to comply with the basic hygiene requirements:

  • wash your hands frequently and thoroughly (at least 30 seconds);
  • use an alcohol-based hand rub if there are no sinks and soup available;
  • avoid close contacts with strangers (do not shake hands, do not hug);
  • keep distance, especially with people showing any signs of illness (cough, difficulty breathing);
  • when sneezing or coughing, cover your mouth not with hands but with a flexed elbow;
  • regularly ventilate the premises;
  • use masks, individual dishes, disposable napkins.

Information leaflets about precautions measures will be distributed in public areas.

2. We should remind you that employees returning from countries with the poor epidemiological situation should stay at home on the quarantine during 14 days regardless of whether they have any ARVI symptoms or not. All employees put in the quarantine may get the official sick leave contacting the clinic in which they are registered. They are either allowed to arrange a remote mode of work (at home) contacting their divisions. Violation of the quarantine by staff members of the international organization is unacceptable.
