Coronavirus restrictions that concern restaurants will end on March 1.

Prime Minister Sanna Marin (the SDP) told about the government’s decision after their meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

The coronavirus passport will not be required to enter restaurants or events because the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Ministry of Justice do not see it necessary, in fact, it limits one’s fundamental rights, and the current vaccines do little to stop the spreading of the Omicron variant. With that being said, the EU’s Covid-19 passport will be required at the border.

What’s more, as of February 14, restaurants will not be categorized by if they primarily serve food or alcohol; regardless of the nature of the business, the last call for alcohol will ring at 23:00, and the doors will shut at midnight.

Furthermore, the government is recommending that the regional administrative agencies will lift the restrictions concerning events and culture, starting in mid-February.

Then, after a couple of weeks, bars, nightclubs and concerts, will be buzzing again until the wee hours of the morning!
