Bucharest tightens restrictions due to COVID-19 - a couple of weeks left until The International 10

The editor-in-chief of the gaming portal GosuGamers Andrea Esanu drew the community's attention to the fact that the Romanian authorities have tightened the rules for entering their country. The journalist made a shoutout of these circumstances on her Twitter account. Andrea herself lives in Romania, and therefore drew attention to such news and decided to share something important for those who are directly or indirectly related to the topic with The International.

The journalist said that all entertainment establishments can only admit 50% of all visitors, and in order to get into any closed institution, you must have a certificate of vaccination.

Andrea Esanu wrote the following:

To all the people who came to TI10. Bucharest has now switched to the red code, new rules and restrictions have been announced. Masks are required in public or open areas. Restaurants, bars, shopping malls and cinemas will be 50% full and admitted with a COVID-19 vaccine certificate. So it's better to carry it with you on your phone. A vaccination certificate is likely to be needed to access any enclosed area. Take care of yourself!

Yesterday morning it became known about the tightened rules in Timisoara, the third largest city in Romania. Now there will be a curfew there on weekends. With an increase in the number of people with COVID-19, such measures will be taken in the capital of Romania, Bucharest.

The International 10 kicks off on October 7 and ends on the 17th. TI10 will be held in Bucharest. The venue will be Arena Naţională. The total prize fund of the event will amount to a considerable $ 40,000,000, and 18 teams will be involved in its distribution.

The remaining six were selected through regional qualifying rounds across six divisions: North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, China and Southeast Asia.
