The Finnish authorities reported this Thursday that due to the increase in coronavirus cases in both countries, they will again impose a 14-day quarantine on all travelers from Belgium and the Netherlands.
In a statement, the Finnish government said the measure will go into effect next Monday, although it has indicated that quarantine measures will be withdrawn if countries are again below eight infections per 100,000 residents.
Although COVID-19 cases have increased again in Germany and Denmark, these types of restrictions have not been reintroduced as authorities have managed to track down the local outbreaks.
Finland had already introduced this type of measure a week ago for travelers from Austria, Slovenia and Switzerland. In addition, Helsinki has expanded the border restrictions on the entry of people from the Czech Republic, France, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.
