NIPH recommends removing the entry quarantine for travellers from the following countries and regions from Saturday 28 November 2020 at 00.00 a.m.:

  • Itä-Savo Hospital District in Finland (7.5 per 100,000 inhabitants in weeks 46 and 47 combined).

NIPH recommends that cross-border workers from the following countries and regions cannot be exempt from entry quarantine (cf. COVID-19 regulations § 6 c) from Saturday 28 November 2020 at 00.00 a.m.:

Helsinki and Uusimaa's Hospital District in Finland (148.8 per 100,000 inhabitants in weeks 46 and 47 combined, and 4.0% positive share among those tested).

NIPH recommends that cross-border workers from the following countries and regions can be exempt from entry quarantine (cf. COVID-19 regulations § 6c) from Saturday 28 November 2020 at 00.00 a.m.:

  • Etelä-Savo Hospital District in Finland (94.3 per 100,000 inhabitants in weeks 46 and 47 combined, and 3.6 % positive among those tested).

This week, North Jutland meets the epidemiological criteria for cross-border workers to be exempt from entry quarantine, according to COVID-19 regulations § 6c. However, as travellers from Denmark are advised to be in quarantine due to the situation with mink, NIPH recommends that cross-border workers from North Jutland should not be exempt from entry quarantine this week, but that the situation should be reconsidered next week.
