Restrictions during the coronavirus epidemic

The restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 epidemic have been lifted. All temporary obligations under the Communicable Diseases Act affecting events, customer premises and food and beverage service businesses expired on 30 June 2022. 

However, the epidemic situation may yet change, and the authorities are making the necessary plans to prepare for it. The Communicable Diseases Act is being updated so that it would be possible to curb the COVID-19 epidemic even in the future as necessary. The Government proposes that an obligation to observe general hygiene guidelines be included in the Act. In addition, it would be possible to impose restrictions as required by the development of the epidemic.

You can prevent the spread of COVID-19 through your own actions. Guidelines by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare:
