A local eyewitness reported the following: “[Marin]It was great to sit down with my friends. Sanna seemed a bit disturbed by the stares of others.

“At night’s end, the Prime Minister was surrounded by the party so she felt more comfortable.”

To be permitted into bars or restaurants, Finland residents must have a Covid pass. This means that they need to have had their blood tested for Covid and been either jabbed, negative, or both.   

Marin was apparently trying to communicate that Covid passes can be trusted, and people are able to enjoy nightlife as long as they have the right documents.

The country's high vaccination rate - with 72 per cent of the population double jabbed - and the use of a Covid health pass to allow access to some restaurants and nightclubs has kept the rate of infections low

High vaccination rates in the country – 72 percent of its population has been double-jabbed – as well as the availability of Covid passes to access some restaurants and clubs have helped to keep the infection rate low.

Finland’s government also announced last week that they will require vaccinations of health-care staff.    

Regional authorities were also instructed by the government to increase their testing and trace efforts, and recommend remote assistance in regions where there is a risk of spreading the virus.

Finland requires all foreign travelers arriving in Finland to present a Covid certificate proving that they are vaccinated. This is to help stop Omicron from spreading. 

If you do not possess a certificate, you will be required to take the Covid-19 test.
