Uusimaa authorities restrict indoor events, large gatherings

The Regional State Administrative Agency of Southern Finland (Avi) has announced that it will re-introduce restrictions on public events in Uusimaa, especially in so-called “high-risk” indoor arenas, such as live music venues that require the public to stand.

However, if the organizer of the event does not wish to comply with the new measures, they may restrict entry to persons who are eligible for a Covid Passport.

Under the new regulations, indoor standing spaces can only accommodate 20 people at a time. However, the number of persons permitted in the seats shall not be limited as long as it does not exceed the seating area of ​​the seat.

Avi said in a statement that the new restriction applies to auditoriums – spaces where the audience can watch a performance, a sports game or a similar event. The decision therefore does not apply to trade fairs, for example.

The restriction also applies only to the audience attending the event, not to staff members or performers or players.

The new measures will take effect next Thursday, November 25th. and are valid until Christmas Eve.
