On Thursday, Finland introduced a quarantine obligation for people traveling to the country from Norway, with the exception of those who live in the border areas in the north, broadcaster Yle reported.
People who come from Norway must spend two weeks in quarantine from Monday, Finnish national broadcasting noted.
Increasing infection rates in a number of countries also made Finland reintroduce quarantine requirements for people coming from Sweden, Iceland, Germany, Slovakia, and Estonia.
Less than two weeks ago, Finland decided to lift the quarantine obligation for travelers from countries with a maximum of 25 infected per 100,000 inhabitants.
On Tuesday, Norway’s National Institute of Public Health (NIPH/FHI) announced that Lithuania and Iceland, as well as the regions of Västerbotten in Sweden and Central Finland and Päijänne-Häme in Finland, should be put on the list of “red” countries.
