Yeah the government were really quick to try closing everything down so a lot is closed but people are generally out and about and there’s a good 30% of places still open but people just being sensible.

They’ve just announced that they want to reopen everything straight after Easter too.

Sweden definitely interesting - carrying on as normal, ‘herd immunity’ tactics but people are just being more vigilant and taking matters into their own hands.

Was reading somewhere that Scandinavians prefer to be convinced to do something as opposed to being told what to do. More a laissez-faire approach.

Sweden is completely different to other countries in Scandinavia currently. In Finland the whole southern part surrounding Helsinki has been isolated and no one's able to cross the state borders, you can't even go to the cabin if you live in Helsinki. Also all of the restaurants/bars/clubs have been closed for a week now and will be until May I think.

But of course companies are following their own routes here as well similarly to Sweden. We for example closed all of our offices in Finland and abroad for the time being and everybody's working remotely. Others still have offices open with more than 200 people on a daily basis.

So it varies quite a bit, but at least here the government is trying to stop the virus from spreading like wildfire.

Yeah that's true, and it's completely fine. As long as the people are being smart about it everything should be fine in the long run.

I think for the time being you could travel from Lappeenranta to Helsinki, but not from Helsinki to Lappeenranta.

Yeah. I added a bracelet. It is pretty small but I think wears okay as I have small wrists.

Thanks all. At times I wish it was a tad bigger (say 36mm instead of 34mm) but I should just embrace it for what it is.

I got the bracelet from Ebay. The end links are aftermarket but I'd like to change those as the compatibility isn't perfect.
