The regulation on the safe use of customer and public premises in the Uusimaa region expires on Tuesday, 15 March. After that, there are no restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 in the area of the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland set by the agency. However, the epidemic is not over, and the Regional State Administrative Agency continues to monitor the situation closely.
Although the regulation imposed by the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland on the safe use of premises is coming to an end in Uusimaa, section 58 c on the general hygiene requirements of the Communicable Diseases Act still applies throughout Finland. The section applies to all customer and public premises without separate official decisions and is valid until 30 June 2022.
