This text has been updat­ed on the 1st of Novem­ber 2021

The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency of West­ern and Inland Fin­land (AVI) makes the deci­sions on restric­tions of gath­er­ings in Soite’s area. The restric­tions are updat­ed on Soite’s page for region­al reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions. More infor­ma­tion can be found on the web­site of The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency.

When events are orga­nized, the restric­tions by the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency on the 23rd of August 2021 (avail­able in Finnish and Swedish) and the instruc­tions in the let­ter by the Min­istry of Social Affairs and Health on the 19th of August 2021 (avail­able in Finnish and Swedish) should be observed.

For exam­ple events where admis­sion tick­ets are sold to the pub­lic should observe the guide­lines issued by the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency and the Min­istry of Social Affairs and Health.

The COVID-19 pass­port serves as an alter­na­tive health secu­ri­ty mea­sure when the event or facil­i­ties in ques­tion are sub­ject to restric­tions. The COVID-19 pass­port is intend­ed by law for cir­cum­stances in which pub­lic author­i­ties have imposed restric­tions to pre­vent the spread of the epi­dem­ic. Exam­ples of such restric­tions include lim­its on open­ing hours, or on the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants at an event. The COVID-19 pass­port can­not be used if premis­es are com­plete­ly closed, or if an event has been entire­ly pro­hib­it­ed due to seri­ous COVID-19 con­cerns. For more infor­ma­tion, please read the web­site of the Min­istry of Social Affairs and Health: https://stm.fi/en/the-covid-19-passport

It is pos­si­ble to use the COVID-19 pass­port at pri­vate events, e.g. pre-Christ­mas par­ties, to ensure that the event is coro­n­avirus safe.

An event orga­niz­er has the respon­si­bil­i­ty to take the pre­ven­tion of coro­n­avirus infec­tions into account

Event orga­niz­ers must ensure hygiene prac­tices in accor­dance with § 58 c in the Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Dis­eases Act (in Finnish) in order to pre­vent the spread of the coro­n­avirus. Event orga­niz­ers must:

At pub­lic events with over 50 peo­ple, the orga­niz­er must have a writ­ten plan for the pre­ven­tion of coro­n­avirus infec­tions. It is rec­om­mend­ed, that the plan is also sub­mit­ted to Soite’s team of infec­tious dis­eases by e‑mail: infektioidentorjunta@soite.fi. A writ­ten plan does not need to be drawn up for pri­vate events such as wed­dings, exam­i­na­tion par­ties and funer­als, but coro­n­avirus safe­ty instruc­tions must be observed.

Orga­niz­ers of pub­lic events with over 500 par­tic­i­pants must sub­mit their plan two weeks in advance to Soite’s team of infec­tious dis­eases (infektioidentorjunta@soite.fi). If need­ed, the plan is reviewed togeth­er with the event organizer.
