Tallinn, Stenbock House, 16 March 2020 – The person in charge of the emergency situation Jüri Ratas has extended an exception for the Valga-Valka border crossing point, to allow people who live in the twin city to freely travel between work and home.
Implementing the exception allows residents of the Valga-Valka area, who work across the state border, to resume their regular activities. Only persons without symptoms of illness may cross the border in the twin city. The exception also allows for the area to function as normally as possible in the emergency situation, which also means keeping economic damages as low as possible.
Channels of mass communication are obliged to publish the order of the person in charge of the emergency situation immediately, without altering and free of charge. An official notice will also be released.
