The recommendation to wear a face mask in the capital region has ceased. This means that face masks are no longer required on Arcada's campus.

The Metropolitan Area coronavirus coordination group has updated the regional recommendation based on the recommendation of the Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). People can now decide for themselves if and when they want to use masks.

From now on, the use of a mask in the metropolitan area is recommended only in a few specific cases, such as if you are in transit to a coronavirus test or have symptoms that suggest a respiratory infection.
