Prime Minister Kaja Kallas (Reform) is self-isolating after coming into contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus on Friday.

"I have just learned that I came into contact with a person earlier this week who got a positive COVID-19 test today. This makes me a close contact and so I am in self-isolation until Thursday next week," the prime minister wrote on social media on Friday.

Kallas said she tested negative for coronavirus yesterday.

"I feel fine and I have no symptoms. In the meantime, however, I will work from home and follow the instructions of the Health Board. Please keep your distance, reduce contact with other people, and stay healthy," Kallas said.

Kallas has not yet been vaccinated against coronavirus. 

The meetings and cabinet meetings of the Government will take place over video bridge in March.

Due to the high prevalence of COVID-19, the Government recommends that all people keep their contacts to a minimum and, if a meeting is necessary, do so with no more than six people, wear a mask, and avoid close contacts. Where possible, the Government encourages employers and employees to work remotely.

According to the quarantine requirements established by the Government, people who have been in close contact with a person suffering from the coronavirus must remain at home in self-isolation. More detailed information on the rules applicable to close contacts can be found on the website at kriis.ee and the website of the Health Board.
