The government has decided on new policies to curb the corona pandemic – this time it is a matter of further easing various restrictions and guidelines.

New guidelines of the government:

– The Government will no longer issue a recommendation based on a certain age limit to avoid physical contact.

– The recommendation for extensive remote working expires on 1 August due to the calmed epidemic situation.

– From 13 July, internal border controls and travel restrictions will be lifted between Finland and Germany, Italy, Austria, Greece, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Liechtenstein, as well as non-Schengen Croatia, Cyprus and Ireland – if the epidemic situation allows.

– Travel restrictions would continue between Finland and the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Poland, France, Sweden and the Czech Republic, with the exception of pleasure boat traffic.

On top of that, the government spoke at its press conference on Tuesday about the recommendations for those over 70 years of age. There are no longer any specific guidelines for any particular age group. The guidelines now apply to all age groups, the restrictions for those over 70 are therefore relaxed.
