An exten­sive rec­om­men­da­tion on the use of face masks is in effect in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia. A face mask is one method for pre­vent­ing the spread of coro­n­avirus infections.

Use of a face mask is rec­om­mend­ed for all per­sons old­er than 12, even those who have been vaccinated:

  • in public places such as shops and in other places outside the home
  • in public transport, in school transport and when transporting people who belong to a risk group
  • when going to a social or health care unit
  • when going to a coronavirus test
  • Use of face masks is also recommended in other situations, both indoors and outdoors, if it is impossible to maintain social distances.

Stop the coro­n­avirus from spreading:

  • If you have symptoms, stay at home and seek out coronavirus testing early and even if you only have mild symptoms
  • Use a mask
  • Wash your hands
  • Cough into your sleeve or into a handkerchief
  • Keep a distance (2 metres!) to other people
  • Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app
  • Get vaccinated when it's your turn
