Turkey will shift to a dynamic supervision model in the period of controlled normalization, the country’s interior minister announced on Wednesday.

Saying that governorships have been sent implementation notices, Suleyman Soylu explained on Twitter: “We have evaluated the Controlled Normalization Period with our governors, police commissioners, and gendarmerie and coast guard commanders.”

Soylu added that supervision would be carried out with some 260,000 personnel.

“Hopefully, we will move together to complete normalization while complying with hygiene, mask, social distancing and all other rules,” he said.

On Monday, Turkey partially eased COVID-19 measures that have been in effect for months.

In its controlled normalization, Turkey has restarted in-person education, lifted weekend lockdowns, and allowed restaurant dining and wedding ceremonies in limited numbers and depending on the conditions in individual provinces.
