Direc­tives and rec­om­men­da­tions with­in Soite’s area remain in place — stay safe dur­ing the New Year’s celebrations

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s region­al Covid-19 author­i­ty work group gath­ered Wednes­day 30th Decem­ber 2020 to adjust the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture for Soite’s area. Soite’s area remains in the accel­er­a­tion phase of the coro­n­avirus spread and the cur­rent restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions remain in force until 10 of Jan­u­ary 2021.

Although indi­vid­ual pos­i­tive coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area after Christ­mas, the sit­u­a­tion with­in Soite’s area is still calm. Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s region­al Covid-19 author­i­ty work group also wants to thank the cit­i­zens in Soite’s area for fol­low­ing the instruc­tions, espe­cial­ly regard­ing the use of masks.

As the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion in Soite’s neigh­bour coun­ties is worse than in Soite’s area, the author­i­ty work group decid­ed to keep cur­rent restric­tions and direc­tives in place. Soite’s area is still defined as being in the accel­er­a­tion phase.

A com­plete list­ing of the region­al coro­n­avirus restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions can be found at Soite’s coro­na web­site:

The Covid-19 author­i­ty work group will gath­er again on the 5th of Jan­u­ary 2021.
