The state of emergency over the coronavirus outbreak has ended in Finland.
The Emergency Powers Act has been revoked, Prime Minister Sanna Marin (the SDP) said at the press conference Monday afternoon.
In practice, some of the measures enforced by the government to tackle the spreading of COVID-19, have been revoked, but still many remain in effect. The revoked measures include detailed legislation concerning pharmacies, social and health services and some details in work-related agreements.
The government noted that there is still a risk that the coronavirus could become more widespread. This, according to Anna-Maja Henriksson (the SPP), the minister of justice, is something every citizen can affect by, for example, keeping proper physical distance.
The Emergency Powers Act was in effect for three months. It came into force on March 17, 2020, and will be revoked on Tuesday, June 16.
