COVID-19 passport to be introduced for public events of more than 100 people
The prevalence of coronavirus in Tampere Region is now at the highest level it has been at any time during the pandemic. The Regional State Administrative Agency for Western and Inland Finland has imposed assembly restrictions in the Tampere Region for indoor public events involving more than 100 people. The restrictions apply to events with an audience in stands. Communal singing events are also subject to restrictions.
The COVID-19 passport is an alternative to restrictions, allowing holders access to functions and events. The COVID-19 passport is not required for those under the age of 16. The restrictions imposed by the Regional State Administrative Agency will be in force from 24 November to 19 December 2021.
The services of the City of Tampere comply with the regulations of the Regional State Administrative Agency. Public events for more than 100 people and where not everyone is assigned a seat on municipal cultural, sport and leisure premises require the presentation of a COVID-19 passport on entry from 24 November to 19 December 2021.
No COVID-19 passport will be required for entry into the Vapriikki and Milavida museums, Sara Hildén Art Museum and Tampere Art Museum. All persons over the age of 16 must present a COVID-19 passport on entry for public events of more than 100 people on these premises where not everyone is assigned a seat.
In Culture House Laikku, Children's Culture Center Rulla, Haihara Art Centre and at cultural events at Hiedanranta, a COVID-19 passport will be required for people aged 16 and over at events involving more than 100 people and not everyone is assigned a seat.
When using the lending or collection services of Tampere City Library, there is no need to present a COVID-19 passport. All persons over the age of 16 must present a COVID-19 passport for public events of more than 100 people on the library premises where not everyone is assigned a seat.
Entry into concerts by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra is subject to Tampere Hall guidelines. Entry to Tampere Hall requires a COVID-19 passport for all those aged 16 or over. The same guidelines apply to the Moomin Museum in Tampere Hall, where the COVID-10 passport must also be presented on entry.
For public events of more than 100 people and not everyone is assigned a seat at the Tampere Region Center of Adult Education, all persons over the age of 16 must present a COVID-19 passport.
At municipal sports facilities and youth facilities, all persons aged 16 and over must present a COVID-19 passport for public events involving more than 100 people, such as events, matches or competitions where not everyone is assigned a seat organised by different organisations. In other situations, no passport is needed at the city's sports facilities and youth facilities. For example, customers arriving at swimming halls, gyms and guided fitness groups do not need to present a COVID-19 passport on entry.
The EU COVID-19 certificate downloadable at Kanta serves as the COVID-19 passport. The certificate is issued when both vaccinations have been taken, when you have had coronavirus or when the result of a recent coronavirus test is negative.
- Log in to Kanta at External link using your online banking credentials or mobile certificate.
- Open the COVID-19 certificate by clicking on the PDF link. If you have a certificate, it will open in a new tab.
- Save an image of the passport on your phone or other device. You can also print the certificate on paper. The passport is your name and QR code displayed on the page.
- Show the passport whenever you go to an event. It will be checked on entry. If necessary, also be prepared to prove your identity.
If you cannot download or print the certificate from Kanta yourself, staff at the city libraries can help you to do it. At the information desks of the Sampola and Hervanta libraries, you can always get personal assistance during service hours to download your COVID-19 passport, and at other libraries you can also get help with both downloading and printing (print-outs à €0.30). The customer must, however, be able to log in to Kanta and use the service themselves using strong identification. Staff can only provide guidance in this.
A printout of the COVID-19 passport can also be requested at municipal health centres and, for students, at Student Health Care. You can also authorise someone else to use Kanta on your behalf.
