Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the City of Tampere now cancels all trips abroad by schools and educational institutions until the end of May.

The restriction also applies to trips of schoolchildren and students from abroad to Tampere. In other words, no groups from abroad are accepted to schools and educational institutions in Tampere.

The city management group made the decision on the matter on 10 March 2020. The management group noted that as the determination of epidemic areas changes constantly, schoolchildren and students travelling abroad may end up in quarantine or be exposed to the disease.
