Health Board: Safety measures were ignored in Eesti Laul semi-final
The Health Board received multiple inquiries on Friday concerning non-observance of safety measures during the first semifinal of the Eesti Laul competition on Thursday.
"It is extremely regrettable that safety measures were not observed during the event. The Health Board reminds the organizers of Eesti Laul and all participants that the restrictions have not been devised to harass someone, but in order to contain the spread of the virus," Director General of the Health Board Üllar Lanno said.
He said organizers must take into account that the event attracts a lot of public attention and it is extremely important to set a good example and follow the rules.
