COVID PASSPORT ( updated 2.12. )

Central Finland entered the covid spread phase (November 29) and there are restrictions on gatherings and restaurants in the Jyväskylä area. This means that in order to participate in John Smith Rock Frozen, you will be required to have an approved covid passport. With the covid passport, gathering and restaurant restrictions do not apply to the John Smith Rock Frozen event, and we can carry out the event as planned.

You must present a covid passport and ID upon arrival to enter the festival. The QR code on the covid passport will be read at the entry upon arrival, possibly meaning a slightly longer queuing time. For the sake of smooth admission, please take your covid passport and ID out before your turn. 

When the covid passport is in use in the event, ONLY with an approved covid passport you can participate in the event. ENTRY IS NOT POSSIBLE WITH ANY OTHER CERTIFICATE (negative test result from health care, rapid test result, etc.). ONLY an EU corona certificate, the covid passport, allows entry.

The EU Digital COVID Certificate available from My Kanta Pages ( is used as a COVID-19 passport. If you are unable to use My Kanta Pages, you can get a paper printout of the certificate from the healthcare service.

The EU Digital COVID Certificate includes the COVID-19 vaccination certificate, the test certificate and the certificate of recovery. Any of these three certificates can be used as a COVID-19 passport. 

The EU vaccination certificate acts as a COVID-19 passport in Finland when 7 days has passed from the person receiving the full vaccination series.

In the case of a third vaccination, the vaccination certificate is valid immediately.

The validity of a test certificate starts from the time of testing, and it acts as a COVID passport in Finland for 72 hours after testing.

The certificate of recovery is valid as a COVID-19 passport in Finland 11 days after the person has received a positive COVID-19 test result.

The COVID certificate reader app does not show your health data to the person inspecting the COVID-19 passport.

The app only shows your name to the person checking the COVID-19 passport when your COVID certificate has been accepted. The name is required in order to confirm your identity.
