Soite’s area trans­fers to the accel­er­a­tion phase of the coro­n­avirus epidemic

The Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties had an extra meet­ing on Mon­day 7th of June 2021 in order to assess the region­al sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture and the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. The group of author­i­ties decid­ed that Soite’s area trans­fers to the accel­er­a­tion phase of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. This leads to some changes in the region­al recommendations.

The num­ber of new coro­n­avirus cas­es has quick­ly begun to decrease. 29 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area in the past 14 days and the inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 37.7/100 000 cit­i­zens in the area. A major­i­ty of the new coro­n­avirus cas­es are con­firmed in per­sons who are already in quar­an­tine. Last week (week 22) approx­i­mate­ly 1350 coro­n­avirus tests were tak­en and the share of pos­i­tive results was 0.4%. One per­son who has been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus is cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

Soite’s area trans­fers to the accel­er­a­tion phase of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic after deci­sion by the group of author­i­ties. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are most­ly kept unchanged, but they are eased regard­ing hob­bies as well as pub­lic spaces main­tained by munic­i­pal­i­ties. The rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing gath­er­ings and changes in coro­n­avirus rec­om­men­da­tions are as follows:

  • It is recommended that private gatherings of over 10 people are not arranged indoors. When it comes to private gatherings outdoors, the recommendation is that no more than 20 persons gather.  It is recommended that masks are used indoors and that safe distances are maintained.
