- The use of masks is recommended in Lapland Hospital District in all public indoor facilities, like public transport, shops, restaurants, public events/gatherings etc. In addition, the use of masks is always recommended for persons belonging to risk groups and their visitors.
Regional State Administrative Agency for Lapland has decided to ban public events with more than 20 participants between 22 February and 21 March. In smaller events and sports gatherings, restaurants e.g. it is recommended that the organiser of the event collects contact information of the participants.
