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.
  • 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
  • Special caution should be taken when travelling to EU and Schengen areas, and trips outside these areas should be avoided. Please follow the instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Finland and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL.
  • The recommendation on remote work is revoked, but the employer is responsible for coronavirus safety in the workplace, and workplaces are advised to spread out breaks and to maintain safe distances. Use of face mask is required when working in social and health care.
