Finland extends COVID restrictions on border with Russia until November 28

Finland has extended travel restrictions across the border, including with Russia, due to the coronavirus pandemic, until November 28, the country’s Cabinet of Ministers said.
“The epidemic of the infectious disease Covid-19 continues. The vaccination coverage achieved has not yet been assessed as adequate, and the risk of overloading health care remains. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the decision from October 14 to November 28,” the statement said.
All vaccinated vaccines approved by WHO or the European Medical Regulator are allowed to enter Finland. There are no Russian vaccines among them.
Finland also allows entry from countries where the level of coronavirus disease, according to Finnish experts, is minimal. The list of these countries is reviewed twice a month.
