HSL drops face mask recommendation

The face mask recommendation for Helsinki region public transport ends. The Helsinki Metropolitan Area Coronavirus Coordination Group has updated regional face mask guidelines in line with the guidelines of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

We thank our customers and transport staff for taking responsibility for health and safety during the past two years of the pandemic. Our customers have been commendably considerate of their fellow passengers so that everyone can feel safe on public transport. Wearing face masks have naturally been the most visible part of this.

The Hospital District of Helsinki continues to recommend wearing a face mask if it is beneficial for one’s own or a family member’s health. Read more

Those who still want to wear a face mask are welcome to do so, also on public transport.
