On Wednesday, the Finnish government updated their list of travel restrictions but still considers Estonia a safe country from which travelers entering Finland do not need to spend 14 days in self-isolation.

At the end of June, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and the government established a regime, under which Finland considers countries safe if their infection rate per 100,000 people over the last 14 days is under eight.

The number of countries in Europe meeting this standard has decreased over the last weeks as infection rates around the world are increasing.

However, Finland still considers Estonia to be a safe country and travelers entering the northern neighbor do not need to spend any time in quarantine - although this could change in future.

Update: Estonia's new case rate is 7.1 per 100,000 people as an average of the last 14 days, the Health Board said on Wednesday morning, falling from 8.3 yesterday. This puts Estonia below the threshold for restrictions.
