#virtuaalivappu
Vappu isn’t cancelled – this year we’re celebrating it at home and virtually!
The coronavirus situation and the restrictions on gatherings affect us all, including on vappu. But just because we can’t have picnics in the park or watch Havis Amanda get her cap at the Market Square, that doesn’t mean we won’t be able to celebrate in other ways.

On this website, we’ve put together the most entertaining livestreams for your virtual vappu, answers to vappu-related questions and tips on how to create a vappu atmosphere at home. We want to offer alternative ways to spend vappu together while staying physically apart.
By celebrating #virtuaalivappu and following the restrictions on gatherings, we can slow down and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This way, we can protect our health and the health of others and avoid overburdening the healthcare system. The better we follow the restrictions and the instructions of the authorities, the sooner we can return to normal everyday life.

Vappu Q&A
Due to exceptional circumstances, vappu is also exceptional this year. Here you will find the authorities' answers to frequently asked vappu questions.
Even if the weather is beautiful this vappu, it is still important to avoid close contact with others. You can connect with your friends and loved ones virtually.

Do not meet for vappu celebrations or picnics in person. Do not travel to other parts of Finland or go out on the water.

Any of us may be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus who can infect others. Everyone must take responsibility for their own behaviour. Vappu gatherings can lead to a new, uncontrolled spike in the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic. We need to get through this together, there will be other vappus!

The authorities are calling on adults to keep a close watch on children and young people and to instruct them on the importance of avoiding close contacts.

The traditional vappu meeting places are now closed and the police will monitor compliance with the restrictions. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum.
We are a group of 10 people at most. Is it okay to celebrate vappu at someone's home or to gather outdoors?
Public gatherings are limited to 10 people because of the coronavirus epidemic. However, you should carefully consider the need for other gatherings, too, and it is important to remember that a safe distance of over a metre is recommended for all contacts.

This year, you should not physically gather with others to celebrate vappu or have a picnic with a group of people, even if the weather is beautiful. We must continue to avoid close contacts: coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, including in smaller groups. Any one of us could be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus and infect others.

However, there is no need to miss out on the celebrations and togetherness. Under the current circumstances, you should celebrate vappu at home in order to maintain a safe distance, but you can still contact your nearest and dearest virtually. There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there.
Can we get together in a small group if we maintain a safe distance between one another?
It is recommended to avoid unnecessary time in public places because of the coronavirus outbreak. The recommendation also applies on vappu. Even if people only come together with their own families and in small groups, many small groups can quickly turn into large groups of hundreds of people. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues.

Traditionally, vappu is a relaxed and carefree celebration, and when celebrating and drinking together, keeping physical distance is easily forgotten. If you want to spend time with those close to you, you can do so at home, in your yard or close by in your neighbourhood. You can also spend vappu together while staying physically apart: you can contact friends and family through phone calls, messages and video conversations.

It’s good to think about how we can best protect each other's health and safety. It is particularly important to protect people in risk groups. Vappu gatherings can lead to a new, uncontrolled spike in the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic. We need to get through this together at home, there will be other vappus!
I usually celebrate vappu at Ullanlinna/Koskipuisto/Vartiovuorenmäki – is it okay to go there this vappu?
There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there. The police will monitor compliance with the restrictions on public gatherings. It is not yet safe to get together with people in the same place. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum, even if they are not directly prohibited by law.

Even if people only come together with their own families and in small groups, many small groups can quickly turn into large groups of hundreds of people. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues. It is important for us to take responsibility for this together!
What will the police do if people gather for a picnic this vappu?
Even small groups can easily grow into mass gatherings. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues. It is important for us to take responsibility for this together! This May Day, you can organise a picnic in your own yard, an area surrounding your home or a place such as the nearby forest.

The police will use its powers to intervene in the situation if it detects an organised gathering or a gathering that endangers public order and safety. The starting point is that the police instructs, advises and urges. The police also have the powers to order a group of people to disperse and relocate as well as an individual to leave if a gathering endangers public order and safety.

Why should I stay at home if my friends are getting together anyway?
The restrictions on gatherings are intended to protect people and they affect us all, including on vappu. Each of us is responsible for making sure our behaviour does not promote the spread of the virus or expose risk groups to the virus. This means we must avoid close contact with others. If you want to spend time with those close to you, you can do so at home, in your yard or close by in your neighbourhood.

Everyone’s actions count – this is something you should also tell your friends. The better we comply with the instructions and regulations issued because of the emergency conditions, the sooner we can get back to normal everyday life. Vappu will come next year, too!
Can I go for a walk with my friends?
It okay to go outdoors, as long as everyone keeps a distance of at least 1 –2 metres from other people. The coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, including in smaller groups. 
Is it okay for children in the neighbourhood to play outside together?
Spending time outside is allowed, and fresh air is good for you. Children can go outside and play if they are healthy. In order to reduce the risk of infection, it is a good idea to wash your hands immediately after playing. Close contact with other children should be avoided, and adults should remind children of this.
Can grandparents meet their grandkids outdoors, for example at a playground?
Everyone in the risk groups should assess for themselves what kind of risk they are willing to take. People over 70 years of age in particular should avoid exposure to the coronavirus. Protecting older people is particularly important because the risk of experiencing serious symptoms requiring hospital care, and even life-threatening symptoms, is considerably greater for older people than for younger age groups. People over 70 years of age should avoid contact with others as much as possible.

Although meeting with family members and other relatives is important for a child’s development, it is worth considering whether meeting right now is a good idea. If grandparents do decide to meet with their grandchildren outside, they should maintain a safe distance of 1–2 metres, as in other cases. It is also possible to meet grandparents virtually or to phone them.

Children can go to a playground if they are healthy. In order to reduce the risk of infection, it is a good idea to wash your hands immediately after playing. Close contact with other children should be avoided, and adults should remind children of this. 
Can I eat takeaway food in the park?
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, restaurants, cafés and licensed premises are closed until 31 May. However, meals may be sold to customers for takeaway.

Restaurants and cafés selling products for takeaway must make arrangements so that no contact is made with customers that could cause a risk of infection. They must take into account queuing arrangements and safe distances, and remove tables and chairs intended for customers.

In other words, it is okay to visit a responsible restaurant or café as long as you, as a customer, remember to stay at a safe distance from others while queueing and eating. Any one of us could be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus and infect others. 
Can I go for a car ride on vappu?
Yes, you can.
Is it okay to go to the park with my family? I mean, we are together anyway.
This vappu, gatherings of more than 10 people are restricted. There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there even in a smaller group. This way, we can prevent large gatherings from taking place. You can have a picnic in your yard, close to your home or in a nearby forest.
Can we go camping in the woods?
We can still go to the woods and enjoy the spring weather. However, it might be best to avoid the most popular hiking destinations.

Metsähallitus has coronavirus guidelines for hikers on its website. Metsähallitus reminds us that it is important to follow the same instructions in nature as in cities and shopping centres: maintain a distance of 1–2 metres from others and remember good hand hygiene at campfire sites and lean-to shelters.
Can I travel to cheer up a lonely friend who is worried about the situation?
It is good to avoid all unnecessary travel, including leisure travel, even within the borders of Finland. Could you cheer up your friend with messages or a phone call instead? You can also use a video call to catch up face-to-face, even if there are miles between you two.

It is normal to be concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. Those who have fallen ill, been placed in isolation or are caring for someone with COVID-19 are particularly susceptible to feelings of anxiety. The steady stream of coronavirus news can also be frightening and lead to anxiety.

The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare has compiled instructions on how to alleviate your own and your family members’ fears and concerns. The website also provides contact details for services offering conversational support.
When should I call 112 on vappu?
You can call the emergency number when you encounter an emergency or need urgent help from the authorities. An emergency means that you know or suspect that life, health, property or the environment is under threat or in danger.

If you are not sure whether there is an emergency, it is always better to call 112 than not to call.

Remember, however, that a suspected coronavirus infection is not a reason to call the emergency number. Unnecessary calls delay the arrival of help to those who are really in need.
Can I buy a vappu balloon somewhere this year?
You can buy a balloon to bring in the vappu spirit, but you should avoid close contact with others while doing so.

This year, the authorities are encouraging people to spend vappu with their families at home, in their yards or nearby. The restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people are still in force. This year, people should not gather at traditional vappu meeting places, as many small groups can quickly grow into larger groups with hundreds of people.

“Thanks for slowing down the COVID-19 epidemic in Finland are due to everyone who has helped by acting responsibly. That said, the situation may change rapidly if people meet for mass gatherings. During a celebration, it is easy to forget about safe distances and hygiene guidelines. This could make it impossible to trace transmission chains later on,” Minister of the Interior Maria Ohisalo reminds us.

“But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate vappu. Vappu is not cancelled – we are now celebrating it at home, out in our yards and virtually,” says Minister Ohisalo.

Events range from quarantine concerts to sima tastings

The Ministry of the Interior and the police have launched the #virtuaalivappu campaign, which encourages people to deviate from traditions and celebrate vappu on the web, in line with the restrictions on gatherings. You can check out the online vappu events at virtuaalivappu.fi. The website also provides answers to questions about COVID-19 and vappu.

The virtuaalivappu.fi website has put together the most entertaining tips for how to spend your time on the day before vappu and on vappu itself. Artists, influencers, student organisations, communities, businesses, cities and municipalities have registered their free vappu livestreams that are open to all.

Social media influencers are also taking part in the campaign so we can be sure that the message on the importance of avoiding physical vappu gatherings will reach different target groups.

One influencer planning his own livestream is Tuure Boelius, a YouTuber and artist who is encouraging his followers to celebrate virtual vappu on Instagram and TikTok. Instagram influencers Hanna Sumari, Juhani Koskinen, Päivi Sappinen, Emmi Nuorgam, Hanne Kettunen, Inari Fernández, Dosdela, Joonas Pesonen and A-lapset are also taking part.

The purpose of the restrictions on gatherings is to protect people from the spread of the coronavirus.

The campaign is motivated by the authorities’ concerns about people complying with the restrictions on gatherings during vappu. While the police will be monitoring compliance with the restrictions on gatherings and restaurants, the responsibility for following them and for ensuring responsible behaviour ultimately rests with people themselves. Parents are responsible for making sure minors follow the recommendations and restrictions.

Other authorities in the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior and the Government as a whole are also involved in the campaign. The virtual vappu concept was created in cooperation with PING Helsinki, an influencer marketing company.

Virtuaalivappu.fi is putting together the most entertaining vappu events on the web
Minister of the Interior Ohisalo: This year, we will celebrate vappu at home

The Ministry of the Interior and the police have launched the #virtuaalivappu campaign, which encourages people to deviate from traditions and celebrate vappu on the web, in line with the restrictions on gatherings. The aim is to give people alternative ways to spend vappu together while avoiding close contacts. You can check out the online vappu events at virtuaalivappu.fi.

– Vappu is traditionally celebrated together and outdoors. Now, because of the coronavirus epidemic and the restrictions on gatherings, this is not possible. But just because we can’t have picnics in the park or watch Havis Amanda get her cap at the Market Square, that doesn’t mean we won’t be able to celebrate in other ways. Vappu is not cancelled – it is now being celebrated at home and virtually, says Minister of the Interior Maria Ohisalo.

Events range from quarantine concerts to sima tastings 
This year, people are encouraged to celebrate vappu at home: sip sima on the sofa, plan a picnic on the parquet and blow up balloons on the balcony. Social media influencers are also taking part in the campaign so we can be sure that the message on the importance of avoiding physical vappu gatherings will reach different target groups. The influencers involved are popular with young people in particular, but also other age groups and people in different life situations.

Over the next week, the virtuaalivappu.fi website is putting together the most entertaining tips for how to spend your time on the day before vappu and on vappu itself. Artists, influencers, student organisations, communities, businesses, cities and municipalities can provide information about their free vappu livestreams that are open to all.
Dozens of people are already involved, and the aim is to gather as many different events as possible on the website. One influencer planning his own livestream is Tuure Boelius, a YouTuber and artist who is encouraging his followers to celebrate virtual vappu on Instagram and TikTok. Instagram influencers Hanna Sumari, Juhani Koskinen, Päivi Sappinen, Emmi Nuorgam, Hanne Kettunen, Inari Fernández, Dosdela, Joonas Pesonen and A-lapset are also taking part.

The campaign is motivated by the authorities’ concerns about people complying with the restrictions on gatherings during vappu. While the police will be visibly monitoring compliance with the restrictions on gatherings and restaurants, the responsibility for compliance with these restrictions and for ensuring responsible behaviour ultimately rests with the people themselves. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum, even if they are not directly prohibited by law.

– The restrictions on physical contacts are especially difficult during holidays. However, it is important to remember why they are in place: to protect lives and health, for risk groups and all of us. The restrictions in effect seem to be working, and thanks for this are due to all responsible Finns and other people living in Finland. That said, the situation may change rapidly if people fail to comply with the restrictions. The coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, Minister Ohisalo reminds us.

Other authorities in the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior and the government as a whole are also involved in the campaign. The virtual vappu concept was created in cooperation with PING Helsinki, an influencer marketing company.

Vappu Q&A
Due to the exceptional circumstances, this year’s vappu is also exceptional.On this page, you can find answers from the authorities to frequently asked questions about this year’s exceptional vappu.
Even if the weather is beautiful this vappu, it is still important to avoid close contact with others. You can connect with your friends and loved ones virtually.

Do not meet for vappu celebrations or picnics in person. Do not travel to other parts of Finland or go out on the water.

Any of us may be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus who can infect others. Everyone must take responsibility for their own behaviour. Vappu gatherings can lead to a new, uncontrolled spike in the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic. We need to get through this together, there will be other vappus!

The authorities are calling on adults to keep a close watch on children and young people and to instruct them on the importance of avoiding close contacts.

The traditional vappu meeting places are now closed and the police will monitor compliance with the restrictions. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum.
We are a group of 10 people at most. Is it okay to celebrate vappu at someone's home or to gather outdoors?
Public gatherings are limited to 10 people because of the coronavirus epidemic. However, you should carefully consider the need for other gatherings, too, and it is important to remember that a safe distance of over a metre is recommended for all contacts.

This year, you should not physically gather with others to celebrate vappu or have a picnic with a group of people, even if the weather is beautiful. We must continue to avoid close contacts: coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, including in smaller groups. Any one of us could be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus and infect others.

However, there is no need to miss out on the celebrations and togetherness. Under the current circumstances, you should celebrate vappu at home in order to maintain a safe distance, but you can still contact your nearest and dearest virtually. There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there.
Can we get together in a small group if we maintain a safe distance between one another?
It is recommended to avoid unnecessary time in public places because of the coronavirus outbreak. The recommendation also applies on vappu. Even if people only come together with their own families and in small groups, many small groups can quickly turn into large groups of hundreds of people. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues.

Traditionally, vappu is a relaxed and carefree celebration, and when celebrating and drinking together, keeping physical distance is easily forgotten. If you want to spend time with those close to you, you can do so at home, in your yard or close by in your neighbourhood. You can also spend vappu together while staying physically apart: you can contact friends and family through phone calls, messages and video conversations.

It’s good to think about how we can best protect each other's health and safety. It is particularly important to protect people in risk groups. Vappu gatherings can lead to a new, uncontrolled spike in the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic. We need to get through this together at home, there will be other vappus!
I usually celebrate vappu at Ullanlinna/Koskipuisto/Vartiovuorenmäki – is it okay to go there this vappu?
There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there. The police will monitor compliance with the restrictions on public gatherings. It is not yet safe to get together with people in the same place. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum, even if they are not directly prohibited by law.

Even if people only come together with their own families and in small groups, many small groups can quickly turn into large groups of hundreds of people. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues. It is important for us to take responsibility for this together!
What will the police do if people gather for a picnic this vappu?
Even small groups can easily grow into mass gatherings. This is why, for example, you should not meet with friends at Kaivopuisto or other traditional vappu venues. It is important for us to take responsibility for this together! This May Day, you can organise a picnic in your own yard, an area surrounding your home or a place such as the nearby forest.

The police will use its powers to intervene in the situation if it detects an organised gathering or a gathering that endangers public order and safety. The starting point is that the police instructs, advises and urges. The police also have the powers to order a group of people to disperse and relocate as well as an individual to leave if a gathering endangers public order and safety.

Why should I stay at home if my friends are getting together anyway?
The restrictions on gatherings are intended to protect people and they affect us all, including on vappu. Each of us is responsible for making sure our behaviour does not promote the spread of the virus or expose risk groups to the virus. This means we must avoid close contact with others. If you want to spend time with those close to you, you can do so at home, in your yard or close by in your neighbourhood.

Everyone’s actions count – this is something you should also tell your friends. The better we comply with the instructions and regulations issued because of the emergency conditions, the sooner we can get back to normal everyday life. Vappu will come next year, too!
Can I go for a walk with my friends?
It okay to go outdoors, as long as everyone keeps a distance of at least 1 –2 metres from other people. The coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, including in smaller groups. 
Is it okay for children in the neighbourhood to play outside together?
Spending time outside is allowed, and fresh air is good for you. Children can go outside and play if they are healthy. In order to reduce the risk of infection, it is a good idea to wash your hands immediately after playing. Close contact with other children should be avoided, and adults should remind children of this.
Can grandparents meet their grandkids outdoors, for example at a playground?
Everyone in the risk groups should assess for themselves what kind of risk they are willing to take. People over 70 years of age in particular should avoid exposure to the coronavirus. Protecting older people is particularly important because the risk of experiencing serious symptoms requiring hospital care, and even life-threatening symptoms, is considerably greater for older people than for younger age groups. People over 70 years of age should avoid contact with others as much as possible.

Although meeting with family members and other relatives is important for a child’s development, it is worth considering whether meeting right now is a good idea. If grandparents do decide to meet with their grandchildren outside, they should maintain a safe distance of 1–2 metres, as in other cases. It is also possible to meet grandparents virtually or to phone them.

Children can go to a playground if they are healthy. In order to reduce the risk of infection, it is a good idea to wash your hands immediately after playing. Close contact with other children should be avoided, and adults should remind children of this. 
Can I eat takeaway food in the park?
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, restaurants, cafés and licensed premises are closed until 31 May. However, meals may be sold to customers for takeaway.

Restaurants and cafés selling products for takeaway must make arrangements so that no contact is made with customers that could cause a risk of infection. They must take into account queuing arrangements and safe distances, and remove tables and chairs intended for customers.

In other words, it is okay to visit a responsible restaurant or café as long as you, as a customer, remember to stay at a safe distance from others while queueing and eating. Any one of us could be an asymptomatic carrier of the virus and infect others. 
Can I go for a car ride on vappu?
Yes, you can.
Is it okay to go to the park with my family? I mean, we are together anyway.
This vappu, gatherings of more than 10 people are restricted. There is no programme this year at the traditional vappu meeting places, and you should not go there even in a smaller group. This way, we can prevent large gatherings from taking place. You can have a picnic in your yard, close to your home or in a nearby forest.
Can we go camping in the woods?
We can still go to the woods and enjoy the spring weather. However, it might be best to avoid the most popular hiking destinations.

Metsähallitus has coronavirus guidelines for hikers on its website. Metsähallitus reminds us that it is important to follow the same instructions in nature as in cities and shopping centres: maintain a distance of 1–2 metres from others and remember good hand hygiene at campfire sites and lean-to shelters.
Can I travel to cheer up a lonely friend who is worried about the situation?
It is good to avoid all unnecessary travel, including leisure travel, even within the borders of Finland. Could you cheer up your friend with messages or a phone call instead? You can also use a video call to catch up face-to-face, even if there are miles between you two.

It is normal to be concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. Those who have fallen ill, been placed in isolation or are caring for someone with COVID-19 are particularly susceptible to feelings of anxiety. The steady stream of coronavirus news can also be frightening and lead to anxiety.

The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare has compiled instructions on how to alleviate your own and your family members’ fears and concerns. The website also provides contact details for services offering conversational support.
When should I call 112 on vappu?
You can call the emergency number when you encounter an emergency or need urgent help from the authorities. An emergency means that you know or suspect that life, health, property or the environment is under threat or in danger.

If you are not sure whether there is an emergency, it is always better to call 112 than not to call.

Remember, however, that a suspected coronavirus infection is not a reason to call the emergency number. Unnecessary calls delay the arrival of help to those who are really in need.
Can I buy a vappu balloon somewhere this year?
You can buy a balloon to bring in the vappu spirit, but you should avoid close contact with others while doing so.

Virtuaalivappu is carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior, the police and their partners.
Virtuaalivappu.fi is putting together the most entertaining vappu events on the web
Celebrating vappu while avoiding physical gatherings

This year, the authorities are encouraging people to spend vappu with their families at home, in their yards or nearby. The restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people are still in force. This year, people should not gather at traditional vappu meeting places, as many small groups can quickly grow into larger groups with hundreds of people.

“Thanks for slowing down the COVID-19 epidemic in Finland are due to everyone who has helped by acting responsibly. That said, the situation may change rapidly if people meet for mass gatherings. During a celebration, it is easy to forget about safe distances and hygiene guidelines. This could make it impossible to trace transmission chains later on,” Minister of the Interior Maria Ohisalo reminds us.

“But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate vappu. Vappu is not cancelled – we are now celebrating it at home, out in our yards and virtually,” says Minister Ohisalo.

Events range from quarantine concerts to sima tastings

The Ministry of the Interior and the police have launched the #virtuaalivappu campaign, which encourages people to deviate from traditions and celebrate vappu on the web, in line with the restrictions on gatherings. You can check out the online vappu events at virtuaalivappu.fi. The website also provides answers to questions about COVID-19 and vappu.

The virtuaalivappu.fi website has put together the most entertaining tips for how to spend your time on the day before vappu and on vappu itself. Artists, influencers, student organisations, communities, businesses, cities and municipalities have registered their free vappu livestreams that are open to all.

Social media influencers are also taking part in the campaign so we can be sure that the message on the importance of avoiding physical vappu gatherings will reach different target groups.

One influencer planning his own livestream is Tuure Boelius, a YouTuber and artist who is encouraging his followers to celebrate virtual vappu on Instagram and TikTok. Instagram influencers Hanna Sumari, Juhani Koskinen, Päivi Sappinen, Emmi Nuorgam, Hanne Kettunen, Inari Fernández, Dosdela, Joonas Pesonen and A-lapset are also taking part.

The purpose of the restrictions on gatherings is to protect people from the spread of the coronavirus.

The campaign is motivated by the authorities’ concerns about people complying with the restrictions on gatherings during vappu. While the police will be monitoring compliance with the restrictions on gatherings and restaurants, the responsibility for following them and for ensuring responsible behaviour ultimately rests with people themselves. Parents are responsible for making sure minors follow the recommendations and restrictions.

Other authorities in the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior and the Government as a whole are also involved in the campaign. The virtual vappu concept was created in cooperation with PING Helsinki, an influencer marketing company.

Social media influencers are also taking part in the campaign so we can be sure that the message on the importance of avoiding physical vappu gatherings will reach different target groups.

One influencer planning his own livestream is Tuure Boelius, a YouTuber and artist who is encouraging his followers to celebrate virtual vappu on Instagram and TikTok. Instagram influencers Hanna Sumari, Juhani Koskinen, Päivi Sappinen, Emmi Nuorgam, Hanne Kettunen, Inari Fernández, Dosdela, Joonas Pesonen and A-lapset are also taking part.

The purpose of the restrictions on gatherings is to protect people from the spread of the coronavirus.

The campaign is motivated by the authorities’ concerns about people complying with the restrictions on gatherings during vappu. While the police will be monitoring compliance with the restrictions on gatherings and restaurants, the responsibility for following them and for ensuring responsible behaviour ultimately rests with people themselves. Parents are responsible for making sure minors follow the recommendations and restrictions.

Other authorities in the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior and the Government as a whole are also involved in the campaign. The virtual vappu concept was created in cooperation with PING Helsinki, an influencer marketing company.
Celebrating vappu while avoiding physical gatherings

This year, the authorities are encouraging people to spend vappu with their families at home, in their yards or nearby. The restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people are still in force. This year, people should not gather at traditional vappu meeting places, as many small groups can quickly grow into larger groups with hundreds of people.

“Thanks for slowing down the COVID-19 epidemic in Finland are due to everyone who has helped by acting responsibly. That said, the situation may change rapidly if people meet for mass gatherings. During a celebration, it is easy to forget about safe distances and hygiene guidelines. This could make it impossible to trace transmission chains later on,” Minister of the Interior Maria Ohisalo reminds us.

“But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate vappu. Vappu is not cancelled – we are now celebrating it at home, out in our yards and virtually,” says Minister Ohisalo.

Events range from quarantine concerts to sima tastings

The Ministry of the Interior and the police have launched the #virtuaalivappu campaign, which encourages people to deviate from traditions and celebrate vappu on the web, in line with the restrictions on gatherings. You can check out the online vappu events at virtuaalivappu.fi. The website also provides answers to questions about COVID-19 and vappu.

Virtuaalivappu.fi is putting together the most entertaining vappu events on the web
Minister of the Interior Ohisalo: This year, we will celebrate vappu at home

The Ministry of the Interior and the police have launched the #virtuaalivappu campaign, which encourages people to deviate from traditions and celebrate vappu on the web, in line with the restrictions on gatherings. The aim is to give people alternative ways to spend vappu together while avoiding close contacts. You can check out the online vappu events at virtuaalivappu.fi.

– Vappu is traditionally celebrated together and outdoors. Now, because of the coronavirus epidemic and the restrictions on gatherings, this is not possible. But just because we can’t have picnics in the park or watch Havis Amanda get her cap at the Market Square, that doesn’t mean we won’t be able to celebrate in other ways. Vappu is not cancelled – it is now being celebrated at home and virtually, says Minister of the Interior Maria Ohisalo.

This year, people are encouraged to celebrate vappu at home: sip sima on the sofa, plan a picnic on the parquet and blow up balloons on the balcony. Social media influencers are also taking part in the campaign so we can be sure that the message on the importance of avoiding physical vappu gatherings will reach different target groups. The influencers involved are popular with young people in particular, but also other age groups and people in different life situations.

Over the next week, the virtuaalivappu.fi website is putting together the most entertaining tips for how to spend your time on the day before vappu and on vappu itself. Artists, influencers, student organisations, communities, businesses, cities and municipalities can provide information about their free vappu livestreams that are open to all.
Dozens of people are already involved, and the aim is to gather as many different events as possible on the website. One influencer planning his own livestream is Tuure Boelius, a YouTuber and artist who is encouraging his followers to celebrate virtual vappu on Instagram and TikTok. Instagram influencers Hanna Sumari, Juhani Koskinen, Päivi Sappinen, Emmi Nuorgam, Hanne Kettunen, Inari Fernández, Dosdela, Joonas Pesonen and A-lapset are also taking part.

While the police will be visibly monitoring compliance with the restrictions on gatherings and restaurants, the responsibility for compliance with these restrictions and for ensuring responsible behaviour ultimately rests with the people themselves. All physical contacts must now be kept to a minimum, even if they are not directly prohibited by law.

– The restrictions on physical contacts are especially difficult during holidays. However, it is important to remember why they are in place: to protect lives and health, for risk groups and all of us. The restrictions in effect seem to be working, and thanks for this are due to all responsible Finns and other people living in Finland. That said, the situation may change rapidly if people fail to comply with the restrictions. The coronavirus spreads precisely when we spend time together at close range, Minister Ohisalo reminds us.
