Health and safety measures

General health and safety measures regarding coronavirus in Finland include avoiding physical contact, maintaining a safe distance from other people and observing good hand and respiratory hygiene. Finnish health authorities require using face masks in public transport in large cities and recommend using it in other situations where it is difficult to maintain 1-2 m distances from other people.

If you suspect that you might contracted COVID-19, use the Coronavirus symptom checker to first assess your condition, if possible. If the symptom checker advises you to contact a health care professional, call your nearest healthcare center, hospital emergency department or the national Medical Helpline at tel. 116 117.

When in Finland, download the local virus tracing app called Koronavilkku produced by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) to help you find out whether you may have been exposed to COVID-19.

If your travel insurance includes medical insurance, please contact the health provider mentioned in the policy for advice.
