Healthy clients can move freely if they follow the rules (including going to work). The restrictions of movement for general and special care clients ended with the emergency situation. As of May 18, movement can be restricted on a case-by-case basis, for example, if there are infected persons in the care home, people with suspected infection, etc. The visiting restriction to care homes is valid until June 1.

The care home must ensure that infected and non-infected residents would not come into contact with each other. In order to do this, the residents with the coronavirus diagnosis and symptoms must be separated from the other residents. If there are infected people in the care home, the movement of residents between rooms and different sections is not allowed. The residents must be informed of the restrictions, and if necessary, the information must be repeated. The healthy residents of the care home need to be able to go outside. It is certainly not right to lock people up indoors but the care home residents need to be explained in a manner comprehensible for them, why they cannot move around without restrictions during the quarantine, and if needed, the information must be repeated. The employees of the care home may continue working as usual, provided that they are healthy.
