The last coronavirus restrictions were lifted in Finland on Tuesday.

Restaurants no longer have restrictions on serving, opening hours, number of customers and seating.

However, the authorities still recommend that Finns wear masks on public transport, for example, but this is not compulsory.

This means that in all Nordic countries, only recommendations on how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic still apply domestically.

Denmark had already lifted practically all anti-coronavirus measures at the beginning of February. Shortly afterwards, Sweden and Norway also announced the end of all restrictions. Iceland followed suit about a week ago.
