COVID-19 infection control measures as from 8 December

To limit the spread of COVID-19, the Public Health Agency has decided on new recommendations and general guidelines.

The aim is to reduce the risk of spreading the infection and the burden on health care while the work to carry out the recommended vaccinations continues.

The most important recommendations remain: get vaccinated, and stay home and get tested when you experience symptoms of COVID-19. The general guidelines for unvaccinated people to avoid contact with older people and people in risk groups remain.

New recommendations for individuals

New recommendations to keep distance from 8 December

The Public Health Agency recommends that everyone keeps a distance from other people in public settings, especially indoors.

This applies even if you are vaccinated.

The recommendation applies to both children and adults.

New recommendation to adults to avoid crowded public transport from 8 December

The Public Health Agency recommends that all adults avoid crowding in public transport, if possible. Avoid rush hours and use other means of transport such as walking, cycling, or travelling by car.

The Agency recommends that all adults wear face masks on public transport if crowding cannot be avoided.

New recommendations and general guidelines for businesses

The Public Health Agency has decided on general guidelines to prevent crowding with the aim of reducing the risk of spread of infection at venues serving food and drink.

To avoid crowding, a venue serving food and drink can for example:

  • limit the number of visitors present at the same time
  • rearrange furniture or take other measures to create space
  • mark distances on the floor or in other ways mark which distance visitors should keep from each other
  • use alternatives to queues, such as for example ticket systems.

New recommendations for employers from 8 December

The recommendations for employers will increase the possibility for workers to keep distances and reduce crowding in work places, and thus reduce the risk of transmission. Employers are recommended to:

  • make it easier for employees to get vaccinated, and inform them of the importance of staying home when they experience symptoms
  •  enable employees to keep a distance from each other, for example at meetings, in staff rooms, and in changing rooms
  • enable employees to work from home to a certain extent, when possible.

New recommendation for those operating public transport from 8 December

The Public Health Agency recommends that those who operate public transport maintain full service. 

New recommendations and general guidelines for public events from 1 December

Since 1 December, new regulations and general guidelines apply.

The aim is to reduce the spread of infection in settings where many people gather. The regulations and the general guidelines concern public gatherings and public events and provide general infection control measures, what applies to events using vaccination certificates, and what applies to those who do not. There are also general guidelines for fairs, markets, shopping centres, and leisure and cultural activities.
