Mask requirement ends in Estonia
It will not be required to wear a mask inside from Wednesday (June 2), the government agreed at its meeting on Tuesday June 1st.
“Thanks to the efforts of the Estonian people in controlling the coronavirus and active vaccination, the infection rate has fallen nicely,” said Prime Minister Kaja Kallas (Reform) in a statement.
“This gives us the opportunity to change the most visible requirement of the coronavirus era – wearing a mask – from mandatory to recommended. As of Wednesday, it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask indoors,” she said.
“At the same time, I want to remind everyone that the coronavirus has not disappeared, and therefore we recommend that you continue to wear the mask in closed and crowded places and, of course, when the health authority or an employer requires you to wear a mask,” Kallas emphasized.
The Health Board reserves the right to require masks to be worn at specific locations or events, and an employer may require employees or customers to wear masks.
It is still recommended to keep follow social distancing rules and regularly wash and disinfect your hands.
