Stay safe during your biennial visit

The exhibition’s indoor spaces will be opened to a restricted number of customers
so that visitors are able to keep a safe distance from each other.
Up to ten people 
are permitted in one indoor space at a time.
We require the use of a face mask

This is how we are helping to prevent the spread of the coronavirus 

Here at Helsinki Biennial, we value your and our employees’ health above all else.
This is why we are asking you to comply with the following instructions,
when visiting us:

Even mild flu symptoms are a good reason to stay home 

If you have any symptoms of flu, i.e. a runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache or fever, please stay home. 

We wash our hands 

The best way to avoid contracting the coronavirus is to wash your hands.
That is why we are asking everyone to maintain good hand hygiene.
Hand washing facilities are available at the harbours, and multiple hand sanitizer points are available along the route.

We maintain a safe distance of at least two metres 

The virus is highly contagious when in close contact. If you see that there is a line to the artworks, information desk or the Helsinki Biennial Shop, please wait a moment and make sure to keep a safe distance of at least two metres from the person in front of you. If you do not have a tissue, please cough or sneeze into your sleeve.  

We cough and sneeze properly 

Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Put all used tissues in the rubbish bin immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use the top of your sleeve. Cleaning has been intensified.

Face masks 

The City of Helsinki requires everyone over the age of 12 to use a face mask in its indoor premises, unless there is a health barrier to using a mask. Please bring your own mask. 

We are now paying heightened attention to the cleaning of our facilities and the cleaning of different surfaces in particular. The situation is being actively monitored. 

We follow current health and safety guidelines 

We follow the current official guidelines for the coronavirus epidemic, as well as the health safety measures required by the Communicable Diseases Act. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
