New restrictions affecting schools, shops, restaurants and public events enter into force today (March 11) and will stay in place until at least Aprill 11.

The goal of the restrictions is to reduce contacts between people, to get the spread of the coronavirus under control in Estonia, and ensure Estonia's health care system's ability to function.



The 2+2 rule will have to be followed outside as well

In order to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the 2+2 movement restriction will be enacted for moving around in public outdoor spaces, which means that up to two people may move around together, keeping a distance of 2 metres from others.


The restriction does not apply to families and in situations where it cannot be observed.




Schools are closed. The Government is very strongly recommending that children are not taken to kindergarten or child care unless it is urgently necessary.



Sports, training, youth work, hobby activities, informal education and refresher training

As of March 11, all indoor activities in the listed sectors are prohibited.


The restriction does not extend to people with special needs and rehabilitation activities.

All outdoor hobby and informal education activities, refresher training, youth work, sports and training are only allowed if the 2+2 movement restriction is adhered to.


This means that no more than 2 people can move around and do sports together (including an instructor), keeping a distance of at least 2 metres from others.


The restrictions do not apply to the activities of people with special needs, including the provision of social and occupational rehabilitation services.

The restrictions on  indoor and outdoor sports also do not extend to professional athletes, members of national teams, candidates of  national teams.


Neither do these restrictions extend to the activities related to the military defence and internal security of the state.



Public events, culture, entertainment, spas, pools and saunas

As of March 11 it is also prohibited to carry out outdoor public events, and to be in places where entertainment services are provided, whether the venues have permanent or temporary seating.


Spas, pools, saunas and swimming facilities must also be closed.

Only outdoor public meetings and public worship services can be held, the participants are limited to groups of up to 10 people.


Visiting outdoor exhibition spaces of museums is permitted if following the 2+2 rule and it must be calculated that the occupancy of an area with an enclosed space is no more than 25 percent.  


Restaurants and cafes will only be allowed to sell food for takeaway.



Stores and shopping  centers

As of March 11, stores must be closed. The restriction does not apply to grocery stores, pharmacies, stores that sell aid equipment and medical devices, the sales points of telecommunications enterprises, optical stores, pet stores and filling stations.


Eating and drinking on site at a filling station cafe is not permitted.

The stores that will remain open have to take into account the requirement that the occupancy of their space cannot exceed 25 percent, and the 2+2 movement restriction.



Service providers

Enterprises providing services may continue their activities but the occupancy requirement will become more stringent – the previous 50 percent maximum occupancy will be reduced to 25 percent.
