COVID-19 information

updated 21 June 2022

In light of the most recent COVID-19 developments, HELCOM has in principle lifted the ban on hybrid and physical meetings as of 1 May 2022. Please note, however, that due to the current political situation the suspension of all official HELCOM meetings will remain until further notice.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation with a view to updating our position in line with the host country regulations and advisories. Please check this page for updates.

Most online meetings will be conducted using Zoom, accessible via app or browser (see our Zoom instructions).

All meeting documents are posted on the Meeting Portal (see our Meeting Portal instructions).
