Regulations and recommendations in Soite's area:

Link: an extensive list on recommendations in Soite

In accordance with sub-section 1 of section 58 in the Communicable Diseases Act, the Regional State Administrative Agency for Western and Inland Finland forbids all such public events that are held indoors in the municipalities in the Central Ostrobothnia Hospital District (with the exception of Reisjärvi) that have over 100 (one hundred) participants and:

  1. where such audience spaces are used where not all participants have been allotted a seat of their own or
  2. that are sing-along events that are considered public events.

The decision is in effect for three weeks from the 15th of November 2021 to the 5th of December 2021. More information on the website of the Regional State Administrative Agency (in Finnish and Swedish).

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.

The restrictions on restaurants that are in effect in the community transmission phase are in effect in Soite's area. The COVID-19 passport is by law meant for situations where the authorities have decided on restrictions in order to prevent the virus from spreading. It is possible to use the COVID-19 passport at private events, e.g. pre-Christmas parties, to ensure that the event is coronavirus safe.

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 December 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.
