On Friday, the government has informed that the person’s coronavirus test was negative.

The government will return to work normally, but the government plenary session, the Ministerial Finance Committee session and the presidential session on Friday will be held using remote connections.

All government ministers switched to remote work yesterday by the decision of Prime Minister Sanna Marin (the SDP) as a precautionary measure.
