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.

Restrictions on internal border traffic will be in force from 12 October for traffic between Finland and Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

External border traffic will be permitted only for traffic arriving in Finland from the Vatican, and for traffic between Finland and Australia, Japan, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, New Zealand and Uruguay for residents of these countries.

Internal border control will continue until the new testing-based approach is introduced on 23 November.

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.
