On April 20, 2021, the coronavirus working group of Southwest Finland and the management group of the City of Turku have outlined that schools and educational institutions will return to contact teaching from Monday, April 26, 2021.

A hybrid model will be transferred to contact teaching in comprehensive schools, upper secondary schools and Turku Vocational Institute from Monday, April 26, 2021 on. 

Day care centres will continue to operate normally with the practices introduced at the beginning of the year. Open day care operations and family clubs will remain closed until Sunday, 2 May, 2021. 

Adult education centres will operate entirely remotely throughout the spring. 

The mask recommendation for grades 1-2 is waived (including afternoon activities), except in those schools that have had a large number of infections: Pansion koulu, Turun normaalikoulu, Lausteen koulu, Nummenpakan koulu and Varissuon koulu. The use of face masks is evaluated weekly. 

A strong face mask recommendation shall continue for third graders and all older pupils and students. The staff face mask requirement is still in force.
