A quarantine in Ternopil

We just found out last night about this quarantine here in the city. We saw store clerks yesterday wearing masks and that was our first clue. Late last night we were told to close the windows due to the spraying that was going on. We were told that the buses and trains are no longer running in and out of the city. We are hoping that we will still make our plane on Saturday... keep us in your prayers!
