Despite all the restrictions national parks and nature trails are open for camping and hiking but remember to keep the guidelines issued by health authorities in mind. Metsähallitus advises avoiding the most popular hiking destinations to avoid crowds forming. Metsähallitus reminds that the same guidelines should be kept in mind in nature as in towns and, for example, in shopping malls: in fireplaces and lean-tos, the safety distance between other people is at least one meter and hand hygiene must be remembered. Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) recommends each citizen to assess their own behavior and the risk related to it before heading outdoors. https://www.luontoon.fi/koronavirusohjeet
