With the buildings to be joined by a new connecting wing, the two separate museums will be housed under one roof.

Jyväskylä allows adult group sports in its premises – healthcare services stop issuing isolation orders

16.02.2022
1,169 new COVID-19 infections were reported in Jyväskylä over the last week (week 6), compared to 1323 over the previous week (week 5). The incidence over the last 14 days is 1,604.3 infections for every 100,000 inhabitants. 75,5 per cent of tested samples turn out positive. The actual number of infections is greater than this, as some suffer from the illness at home after making a home test and thus do not appear in city statistics. The overall numbers of infections appears, however, to have started to decline on a permanent basis. The number of patients requiring hospital care in Jyväskylä has remained small.

An extensive mask recommendation for over 12-year-olds is still in force until further notice in Jyväskylä.
