At a press conference held at 12 noon on Friday, 27 November, the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Coronavirus Coordination Group gave a briefing on the epidemic situation and decisions on new regional restrictions and recommendations. The coronavirus coordination group includes the cities of Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa, THL, HUS and the Regional State Administrative Agencies of Southern Finland.
In the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, the corona epidemic remains in the active spreading phase, which is the most serious phase on a 3-point scale confirmed by the authorities. In recent weeks, there has been a major increase in the number of coronavirus infections detected. Due to the serious situation, on 26 November the Coordination Group decided on new guidelines and restrictions that will take effect from Monday 30 November.
