Pro­tect­ive face mask re­com­mend­a­tion in the library premises

The use of protective face masks is strongly recommended for members of the University community, visitors and customers.
 
The University of Helsinki has updated its face mask recommendation and the Helsinki University Library also follows the recommendation. The use of protective face masks is strongly recommended for members of the University community and customers visiting library premises.
 
Library customers should take the extended protective face mask recommendation seriously and comply with it, unless there are special health-related reasons for not wearing a mask.
 
By taking care of yourself, you also take care of others. Only visit the library when you're healthy. Please take care of hand hygiene and use a face mask. Keep adequate distance from other customers and library staff. Follow the instructions for the corona situation displayed in the library.
