President Kersti Kaljulaid went on a ski trip to Switzerland in the last days of 2020, the President’s office has confirmed. This despite the recommendations of the Foreign Ministry to the public not to travel without an urgent need.
“The infection situation and the infection rate in Switzerland are no different from those in Estonia. The risk of infection was the same,” said President’s PR advisor Taavi Linnamäe to ERR.
Linnamäe said Kaljulaid took a coronavirus test and tested negative when she arrived back in Estonia. The president then remained in isolation and tested negative a second time.
“It’s limited isolation, which means she can go to work, but not to stores or the theater,” Linnamäe said.
He added that Kaljulaid can and is currently continuing to work during the isolation phase.
