As the situation, including the lifting of restrictions, can change quickly, we ask that the organizers of weddings keep themselves up to date with what restrictions in force in the country. To find out what rules are in force in the institution where the marriage is registered, you must contact the local municipality, clergyman or notary that performs the registration.
In public places and indoors (except home), at least 2-metre distance should be kept from other people. Public places would include playgrounds, sports facilities, beaches, promenades, hiking trails, etc. In a public place it is not allowed for more than 2 people to be together, this restriction does not apply to families and to people performing public duties.
Great care must be taken when organizing private parties. The risk of infection does not depend on whether the event or gathering is public or private. It is very important to follow the simple guidelines that we have been basing ourselves on this whole time: keep a physical distance with others, follow all hygiene requirements etc.
When organizing a private gathering, it is particularly important to protect older and immunocompromised people, as they are at the biggest risk from the coronavirus. The responsible attitude of the person organizing a family gathering helps to prevent the spread of the virus and avoid new victims.
When planning the number of wedding guests, make sure that everybody has enough space in order to keep the necessary safe distance from others if they so wish. Before engaging in the customary embracing or handshaking, think about how this might enable the virus to spread.
More information on how to avoid the coronavirus can be found on this web page: https://www.kriis.ee/en/coronavirus-its-prevention-symptoms-and-how-it-spreads. We recommend that everybody acquaints themselves with this information before participating in the event.
