18.2.2021: Capital region shifts to safe alternating contact teaching in upper secondary education, extends current recommendations and restrictions to end of March
In an 18 February 2021 meeting, the Metropolitan Area coronavirus coordination group decided that the recommendations and restrictions currently in effect for the capital area would be continued for the most part until 31 March 2021. The group also decided to start the region’s preparations for the implementation of powers granted by the new Communicable Diseases Act, Section 58d in particular. In addition, the cities in the metropolitan area decided to shift to face-to-face classroom teaching in alternating groups in upper secondary education, in a controlled and safe manner. Decision-makers are continuously monitoring the impact of their decisions, so changes can be made rapidly in response to the epidemiological situation.
