If you suspect that you might contracted COVID-19, use the Coronavirus symptom checker to first assess your condition, if possible. If the symptom checker advises you to contact a health care professional, call your nearest healthcare provider or the national Medical Helpline at tel. 116 117.
If your travel insurance includes medical insurance, please contact the healthcare provider mentioned in the policy for advice.
Nationwide emergency number is 112. Call the emergency number only in genuine emergency situations. In an emergency situation, you will be treated even if you do not have a municipality of residence in Finland. The medical costs can be collected from you afterwards. The emergency number can be called free of charge from any phone. No area code is needed. If you have a mobile phone subscription that is based abroad you can still call the emergency number without an area code.
