Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL now (8.1.2021) recommends the use of a face mask in public transport for those aged 12 and over.

The recommendation to use a face mask also applies to children in school transport. 

However, according to THL, the mask should not be used if it makes it too difficult to breathe or if there are other health reasons that prevent you from using the mask.

In public transport, it is important to follow safety rules whenever possible, wash hands, cough on a sleeve or disposable handkerchief, and avoid touching your face. If you have any symptoms of flu, please do not get on Linkki transport. Do not take a bus especially if you are on your way to a coronavirus test!

Instructions on how to work with face masks can be found on THL's website.
