In Muonio, we have been able to prevent the spread of the coronavirus very well by committing to national guidelines and by strictly adhering to them in our everyday activities. Thanks for this are also due to enlightened and responsible travellers, holiday residents, entrepreneurs, and the citizens of the municipality. By acting in a controlled manner and by observing national guidelines and recommendations, we will continue to make efforts to control the coronavirus epidemic, to safeguard our healthcare capacities, and to protect those at greatest risk in particular.

There is currently no internal border control between Finland and Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Liechtenstein, Malta, Germany, Slovakia and Hungary as well no restrictions between Finland and Andorra, Cyprus, Ireland, San Marino and the Vatican. From 27 July onwards, traffic between Finland and South Korea, Georgia, Japan, China, Rwanda, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay and New Zealand will be allowed without restrictions.  Foreign tourists who are in Finland may leave the country. The Government of Finland will reassess the need for and extent of the restrictions on entry in approximately two weeks based on the epidemiological situation.
