The government declared an emergency situation in Estonia until 1 May
The government has declared an emergency situation due to the pandemic spread of the coronavirus in the world and within Estonia. Unless decreed otherwise by the government, the emergency situation remains in force until 1 May 2020.
Until 1 May 2020, theater houses, museums and cinemas will remain closed to the public and sports events will be cancelled to minimize people-to-people contacts. Libraries may remain open to a limited extent.
The Ministry of Culture keeps all cultural institutions, organizers and event visitors informed of all details, should there be any changes or further restrictions.
Restrictions apply to everyone, including private cultural organizers.
The COVID-19 pandemic, which is re-emerging, is causing concern for cultural and sports organisers. The experience in the spring, when the value chains of many sectors simultaneously ceased to function overnight, is still very fresh in our minds. And the recovery has yet to be completed, even under the restrictions that continue to apply.
Today, on the 28th of May, the Estonian ambassador in Hungary, Kristi Karelsohn and the state secretary of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities, Zoltan Lörinczi (photos attached), signed an agreement on a programme of cultural cooperation between the two countries, lasting from 2020 until 2022. This is already the ninth programme signed, based on cultural cooperation between the two states.
