The Estonian Defence Forces have limited the movements of active troops abroad and have very critically reviewed the needs and objectives of foreign missions. All service personnel arriving from other countries will be working from home for the restriction period, if possible. As a preventive measure, the service personnel who might have been exposed to infected persons when abroad will also be working from home, if possible.

For each planned operation in Estonia, the heads of the military units will make a decision whether or not to cancel. If an event has participants who are from outside the Defence Forces, the head of the unit has the right to cancel or use remote work possibilities. Events that turn into public events will be coordinated with the local government.

Serving troops who display the symptoms of disease will work remotely.

The Chief of the Defence Forces has the right to impose restrictions on the movement of the Defence Forces, depending on the situation, and it is within the competence of the heads of units to authorise leave permits.

As a precaution, quarantine and isolation are applied in the Defence Forces. Sick staff are placed in quarantine and are separated from others. The isolation is also applied to staff who have no symptoms but are suspected to have been exposed to the virus.
