Bars and restaurants are reopening on Monday in Finland, after being closed for six weeks.

However, there are still strict coronavirus restrictions in regions with high levels of infection pressure, such as Uusimaa, Southwest Finland, and Ostrobothnia.

There, restaurants can be open between 5 AM and 7 PM but may not serve alcohol after 5 PM. In other regions with less infection, bars may be open until 11 PM.

Finland reached the peak of infection in March but has largely had control of the virus pandemic.

A total of 84,131 people have been registered as infected during the pandemic, and 887 have died due to COVID-19, according to John Hopkins University’s survey.
