Ship passengers to be screened for coronavirus

Representatives of the City of Helsinki Social Services and Health Care Division are carrying out the coronavirus screening of ship passengers returning to the country at the Port of Helsinki from 2 April.

All passengers arriving in Finland from abroad will be put into quarantine upon arriving at the port. Usually those put into quarantine are instructed to go home, but passengers arriving from abroad are currently prohibited from using public transport services. For those who cannot arrange their own ride home, the Government will pay for a taxi ride home.

Trams 6T and 7 do not run via the West Terminal from 2 April until further notice. This means there are no HSL transport services to the West Harbour.
