Larger Cities in Estonia Void of People Following State of Emergency
It is a week into the state of emergency declared in Estonia and instead of being in cities, a lot of Estonians have taken advantage of the situation and are spending time outdoors in forests and on bog hikes, although being warned to keep their distance from other hikers. As of March 19, there were 267 confirmed cases of COVID-19, while only 8 people have been hospitalized, with none of them requiring intensive care. There have been no deaths from the virus so far. A total of 2259 corona virus tests have been carried out since January 31 and most of the people with the virus are experiencing mild symptoms.

The Estonian National Museum (Eesti Rahva Muuseum) is collecting stories and photos about how the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the emergency situation are effecting and reshaping the everyday lives of people who live in Estonia and how we adapt.

On March 12 the Estonian Government declared an Emergency Situation in connection with COVID-19. Up to date information can be found on the U.S. Embassy’s Webpage and on the Estonian Health Board’s English-language page.

Estonian American National Council President Marju Rink-Abel and Washington, DC Director Karin Shuey were both invited to speak away from their home bases near DC at community events that celebrated 102 years of Estonian independence. Marju visited the Atlanta community and Karin went to the south Florida community’s program in West Palm Beach.

Estonian Government Forms Crisis Commission
The Estonian government has set up a government crisis commission to deal with the COVID-19 virus outbreak and, as an additional measure, has decided to prohibit cruise ships from docking in Tallinn until May 1. Events with more than 100 participants are also being cancelled. In his speech on Thursday morning Prime Minister Jüri Ratas said Estonia had reached a state of emergency and late Thursday the Minister of Education and Research Mailis Reps announced all schools would be closed as of Monday, March 16. There were 27 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Estonia as of March 12.
