Yes, churches are open and religious services do take place.

Throughout Estonia, a 50 percent room occupancy limit applies to religious services. Services and public religious rites may be performed at an indoor venue with no permanent seating only if the seats are numbered and people are sitting in a spread out manner. Masks must still be worn indoors, disinfection requirements and other precautions must be followed in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

The churches and other holders of religious services must follow the measures necessary to prevent the spread of the virus when holding communions or other religious rites.

Keeping in mind the occupancy requirement, up to 400 people may participate in events in halls with permanent seating and up to 200 people in rooms without permanent seating. If the religious event takes place outdoors, up to 250 people may participate in it. Night-time events are not allowed, activities are prohibited between the hours of 21.00 and 06.00.

Several congregations stream services contact free over the internet. More detailed information about the church services or religious events can be obtained from the congregation's website or by phone.
