Soite’s area trans­fers to the base­line when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epidemic

The Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties had a meet­ing on Wednes­day 16th of June 2021 in order to assess the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture and the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. The group decid­ed that Soite’s area trans­fers to the base­line when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. As a pre­cau­tion, rec­om­men­da­tions on gath­er­ings are still in effect until 23rd of June 2021 and are assessed again at that date.

The coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion is calm in Soite’s area. Six coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area in the past 14 days and the inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 7.7/100 000 cit­i­zens in the area. 0.1% of the coro­n­avirus tests are pos­i­tive. The lat­est coro­n­avirus case was con­firmed on Tues­day the 8th of June 2021. One per­son who has been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus is cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

In accor­dance with the deci­sion by the group of author­i­ties, Soite’s area trans­fers to the base­line when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. As a pre­cau­tion, rec­om­men­da­tions asso­ci­at­ed with the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic are still in effect in the area. Cen­tral rec­om­men­da­tions are for exam­ple the following:

  • It is recommended that private gatherings of over 10 people are not arranged indoors (the recommendation is unchanged)
  • When it comes to private gatherings outdoors, the recommendation is that no more than 50 persons gather (the previous recommendation was 20)
  • Hobbies for adults are allowed in groups of max. 10 people indoors and max. 50 persons outdoors (the recommendation regarding the number of persons outdoors was changed: the previous recommendation was 20 persons).  
  • Group activities for children and young people is allowed indoors in groups of max. 20 and outdoors in groups of max. 50 (the recommendation was not changed). 
  • The recommendation on pausing contact sports was withdrawn.
  • The recommendation on the use of face masks is unchanged in the area.
  • It is still recommended that unnecessary travel abroad is avoided.

The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are in effect until the 23rd of June 2021. The reg­u­la­tion by The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency (in Finnish) on restrict­ing the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants in pub­lic events and pub­lic gath­er­ings is in effect until the 22nd of June 2021. All the region­al reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area are list­ed on Soite’s coro­na web­site. The web­site also con­tains instruc­tions for event orga­niz­ers.

It is still impor­tant to fol­low the hygiene instruc­tions and the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions for pre­vent­ing coro­n­avirus infec­tions. The fact that the coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are pro­gress­ing, helps pre­vent the spread of coro­n­avirus infec­tions and makes it pos­si­ble to move towards a more nor­mal life. All per­sons over the age of 16 can get a coro­n­avirus vac­cine in Soite’s area.

The Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties has its next meet­ing on Wednes­day 23rd of June 2021 in order to assess the region­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion and rec­om­men­da­tions. If the region­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion remains calm, it may be pos­si­ble to ease the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions before midsummer.
