COVID-19 passport required at Winner and Puppy shows

COVID-19 passport is required at the Winner and Puppy shows on 18th and 19th December 2021 at Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre. A COVID-19 passport is required since enough seats for all visitors of the event cannot be arranged next to the rings. The Finnish Kennel Club has contacted the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland in the matter.

The EU Digital COVID Certificate, which is available from the My Kanta online service for Finnish citizens, is used as a COVID-19 passport. You can come to the event if you have one of three EU COVID Certificates:

- a certificate of COVID-19 vaccination
 a certificate of a COVID-19 test result

- a certificate of recovery from COVID-19.

More information about the COVID-19 passport is available at the website of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.

We strongly recommend that all visitors wear a face mask. Do not come to the event if you experience any respiratory symptoms. Please follow hygiene regulations and keep enough distance to others. 

In the dog show ring, the judge may ask the handler to show the dog's teeth. Judges do not shake hands with exhibitors.

Instructions regarding health security is specified, when necessary. Let’s together make sure that the event can be organized as safely as possible!
