Tallinn, Stenbock House, March 16, 2020 – The person in charge of the emergency situation, Prime Minister Mr Jüri Ratas signed today additional instructions regarding the restrictions on freedom of movement in the territory of Saaremaa, Hiiumaa, Vormsi, Ruhnu, Kihnu ja Muhu island municipalities.


Movement restrictions were also extended to the island of Manija. There are no movement restrictions between the islands of Muhu and Saaremaa.

In this case, it should be taken into account that they cannot return to their place of residence until the end of the restriction period.


People whose place of work is on the islands can leave the mainland to go to work but they cannot return to their place of residence until restrictions on movement are lifted.


The media must publish the order of the person in charge of the emergency situation without delay, unchanged and free of charge. Official notification will follow.
