Regulations and recommendations in Soite's area:

Link: an extensive list on recommendations in Soite

When public events are organized, the instructions from the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL as well as the letter by the ministry of Social Affairs and Health must be adhered to. For example events where admission tickets are sold to the public should observe the guidelines issued by the Regional State Administrative Agency and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.

Recommendations by the regional COVID-19 authority task group:

  • The regional COVID-19 group of authorities strongly emphasizes the importance of observing safety distances and hygiene guidelines at all gatherings and hobbies.
  • An extensive recommendation on the use of face masks is in effect in Soite's area and it also applies to private gatherings and hobbies.

  • A recommendation on working from home is in effect until 31st of October 2021. It is recommended that employers utilise a so called hybrid model where some of the work is, if possible, done remotely in turns, so that only a part of the personnel present at the workplace at the same time. The employer is responsible for coronavirus safety in the workplace. Workplaces are advised to spread out breaks and to maintain safe distances.
  • Gatherings should be kept as small as possible and, if possible, people should gather in smaller groups at a time. A guest book, for example, can be used to note the times when guests arrive and leave. This helps in a possible exposure situation when persons who have been exposed must be traced.
  • In hobbies and when private gatherings are organized, special attention must be paid to the general coronavirus instructions and hygiene guidelines. Keeping safe distances is still recommended. Safety instructions must be followed when gatherings are organized: Link: Instructions to event organizers in Soite’s area
  • One should attend gatherings and hobbies only if absolutely healthy

    Cur­rent Coro­n­avirus Infor­ma­tion in Soite’s Area on Octo­ber 18th 2021

    The coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion remains seri­ous in the Soite area. Dur­ing last week (week 41), a total of 75 new coro­n­avirus infec­tions were con­firmed in the Soite area. Most of those who were infect­ed were unvac­ci­nat­ed or had only received an incom­plete series of vac­ci­na­tions. The most impor­tant thing is to fol­low the hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions and to seek out coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion if you are not yet vaccinated.
