A pos­si­ble coro­n­avirus expo­sure occurred in Kokko­la in the lob­by of the shop­ping cen­ter Chy­de­nius — no new coro­n­avirus cases

Mon­day 5th of July 2021 a pos­si­ble coro­n­avirus expo­sure occurred in Kokko­la in the lob­by of the shop­ping cen­ter Chy­de­nia between 10 am and 7 pm.

We ask any­one who may have vis­it­ed a poten­tial expo­sure place to observe them­selves for symp­toms and not hes­i­tate to seek out coro­n­avirus testing.

Dur­ing a poten­tial expo­sure sit­u­a­tion, it is enough to fol­low the coro­n­avirus rec­om­men­da­tions, i.e. min­i­mize the num­ber of close con­tacts and avoid unnec­es­sary social gath­er­ings, use a pro­tec­tive mask, main­tain a safe­ty dis­tance of 2 meters and main­tain good hand hygiene. Book an appoint­ment for coro­n­avirus test­ing if you get even only mild symptoms.

If you have inter­act­ed with a per­son who has been exposed to coro­n­avirus, but not with a per­son who has con­tract­ed coro­n­avirus dis­ease, then it is enough to observe your con­di­tion at home and fol­low the coro­n­avirus rec­om­men­da­tions. If a per­son has been exposed to coro­n­avirus, Soite will call them.

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area dur­ing the past week. The lat­est case was con­firmed on 8th of June 2021. The region­al inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 0/100 000 cit­i­zens in 14 days. One per­son who has been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus is cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal (updat­ed 6th of July 2021).

Let’s main­tain the region’s excep­tion­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion by fol­low­ing the hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions, the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions and by seek­ing out coro­n­avirus test­ing even if you have only mild symp­toms indica­tive of coro­naEven peo­ple who have already received the vac­cine must seek out test­ing if they get symp­toms. Coro­n­avirus vac­cines effec­tive­ly pre­vent virus infec­tions and virus secre­tion and the spread of infec­tions, but do not com­plete­ly elim­i­nate the risk of get­ting or spread­ing an infec­tion: even a vac­ci­nat­ed per­son may poten­tial­ly infect oth­ers. Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion offers pro­tec­tion espe­cial­ly against seri­ous forms of coro­n­avirus disease.

All regi­nal reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions are list­ed on Soite’s coro­na web site.

Updates regard­ing the coro­n­avirus situation

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has begun their sum­mer break and their next meet­ing is on 5th of August unless the region­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion changes significantly.

Dur­ing July, we inform about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion every Mon­day by updat­ing the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture as well as the coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor on Soite’s coro­na web site.

We pub­lish addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion only if it changes significantly.
