Public transport within Estonia

Expand all questions

Just like in other public transport, it is also obligatory to wear in mask on internal ferries (except in activities where it is not possible, e.g. while eating in the restaurant). A mask is not obligatory for children under the age of 12. People who have a contraindication to wearing a mask for health reasons must present a corresponding certificate to the checker.

A scarf, a tube scarf, a collar, a visor or any other object that is not clearly meant to be worn as a protective mask do not count as a mask. A preference is given to a medical mask or a mask equated to that (e.g. an FFP1-3 mask or a N95 respirator) which effectively stops the Delta strain of the coronavirus from spreading.

Additionally, in the catering establishments of internal ferries it must be ensured that people are dispersed, disinfectants are available, and the disinfection rules are followed in accordance with the instructions of the Health Board.

Requirements for public transport employees

Public transport employees have to behave in accordance with the employer's risk analysis.

In employment relationships, the basis for the employee's use of personal protective equipment (including masks, a visor, a protective glass) and following other pre-emptive measures aimed at stopping the spread of the virus is the working environment risk analysis conducted by the particular employer.
