THL urges to refuse any travel to Russia

The reason for this recommendation was the deterioration of the situation with the coronavirus in Russia, as well as the spread of the mutated delta strain.

Health Department THL recommends avoiding any travel to Russia at the moment.

THL reports that the reason for the recommendation was a strong deterioration in the situation with coronavirus in Russia, as well as the spread of a more infectious delta strain.

Travelers arriving from Russia go through medical checks and coronavirus tests at the border, and are also advised to take a second test 72 hours after arriving in Finland. Before receiving the results, THL advises those who arrived from Russia to avoid any social contacts.

For example: among the football tourists who attended the European Championship in St. Petersburg, about 400 cases of the disease have already been identified, and infection with the delta strain has been detected.
