Due to the emergency situation in Estonia, the prohibition to visit applies to all social welfare institutions, hospitals and detention facilities until the preliminary date of 1 May 2020. To contain further spread of the COVID-19 infection, the Health Board ordered the suspension of all regular, scheduled health care services outside the national network of hospitals. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. All scheduled treatments will be suspended to contain the spread of the virus and in the interest of using personal protective equipment more economically. Continuation of planned treatments, which have already been started, will be reassessed by the doctor and patient, on a case-by-case basis. All planned treatments will need to be carried out if the suspension would endanger the patient’s health.
