Masks and Vaccination

In May 2023, the World Health Organization declared that COVID-19 is no longer an international health emergency. There is no need to present a certification of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19, or negative test results. It is not mandatory to use face masks or respirators, however, medical institutions and other service providers reserve the right to determine if there is a need to use face mask or respirators when assessing risks. 


We have rapid tests available to distribute in case they are needed. If you would like to test more regularly, please additionally bring your own. If you are displaying symptoms but are testing negative, please wear a mask as a courtesy towards others.
