Restrictions during the coronavirus epidemic

The aim of the restrictions and recommendations is to slow down and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Finland, to safeguard the resource capacity and resilience of the healthcare system throughout the country, and to protect people, especially those at risk. 

Of the restrictions and recommendations currently in place, some apply to all of Finland while others are regional. The regional restrictions and recommendations in place depend on the phase of the epidemic in the region in question. Restrictions and recommendations may also be put in place for a certain fixed period. The Government's recommendations are not legally binding.

Any new decisions and resulting guidelines will be updated on this page.
