Cur­rent infor­ma­tion on mea­sures in Soite due to the coronavirus

Soite is mak­ing prepa­ra­tions in order to make sure there are enough beds in hos­pi­tals and in order to strength­en home care

Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Joint Munic­i­pal Author­i­ty For Social And Health Ser­vices Soite is prepar­ing for a big­ger need of beds in hos­pi­tals than usu­al dur­ing an excep­tion­al epi­dem­ic.  The pilot project on grad­u­al­ly decreas­ing the places of care on the gen­er­al med­i­cine wards in Veteli and Kan­nus and strength­en­ing home care is post­poned to a lat­er date. At the same time, Soite pre­pares for increas­ing the num­ber of beds in Soite’s units if needed.

In addi­tion to that, Soite strength­ens home care and advanced home care by flex­i­bly mov­ing per­son­nel resources. Some of Soite’s units are closed from Mon­day 16th of March and non-urgent appoint­ments etc. are reduced, so that per­son­nel can be moved where the need is the greatest.

A pos­si­ble expo­sure to the coro­n­avirus in Kpedu’s audi­to­ri­um on the 11th of March 2020

One per­son has been diag­nosed with coro­n­avirus in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal on Sat­ur­day 14th of March 2020. The 17 near con­tacts of the infect­ed per­son have been con­tact­ed and they are in quar­an­tine. The same case is asso­ci­at­ed with a low­er risk expo­sure for per­sons who took part in the course “Työy­hteisön kehit­tämi­nen” in Kpedu’s audi­to­ri­um on the 11th of March 2020. All of those who took part in the course have been sent a per­son­al let­ter with instruc­tions.  Accord­ing to an assess­ment by Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit and the Finnish insti­tute for health and wel­fare Thl, the risk for the par­tic­i­pants to become infect­ed is small. Oth­er employ­ees and stu­dents at Kpe­du and per­sons who have vis­it­ed the school cafe­te­ria on the day in ques­tion need not take any measures.
