 Due to the emergency situation in Estonia, a ban on visits applies to all social welfare institutions, hospitals and prisons until the preliminary date of 1 May 2020. To contain the further spread of the COVID-19 infection, all regular, planned health care outside of the national network of hospitals has been stopped. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. Regular treatments are stopped to contain the spread of the virus and in the interest of using personal protective equipment more economically. Regular treatments that have already been started will be reassessed by the doctor and patient, on a case-by-case basis. All regular treatments, whose cessation would endanger a patient’s health, will have to be carried out to their completion.
