COVID-19 passport is required at the Burgher’s House Museum
The Burgher’s House Museum and the Helsinki City Museum will be taking the covid-19 passport into use from December 4th. A passport is required for all museum visitors over the age of 16 until 31th December 2021.
On 2 December 2021, the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland decided that the number of participants in indoor public events and general meetings in the metropolitan area would be limited to 20 people. In a public event, the restriction applies to the entire duration and area of the event. In addition, the Regional State Administrative Agency requires the use of both premises open to the public and premises intended for the presence of a limited number of customers or participants to be organized in such a way that the risk of infection caused by close contact between customers and participants can be prevented. The decision is valid from 4th until 31th December 2021. Operators have a possibility to avoid these restrictions by introducing the COVID-19 passport in their activities. On this basis, the City of Helsinki will introduce the COVID-19 passport for all activities where it is possible.
From 4 December 2021 onwards, the COVID-19 passport will be introduced at all public events organized by the city, and in some customer premises. For example, indoor sports venues, cultural centres and city museums, such as the HAM Helsinki Art Museum, the Helsinki City Museum and the Burgher’s House Museum, will introduce the COVID-19 passport into use. The COVID-19 passport will be required for city events and some customer facilities until the end of 2021. In the operation of sports halls, the COVID-19 passport will be introduced from 7 December 2021 onwards. Prior to that, operations shall be subject to the restrictions of section 58 d.
