Elec­tron­ic book­ing of an appoint­ment to a coro­n­avirus test is expand­ed to the entire Soite area

Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Joint Munic­i­pal Author­i­ty For Social And Health Ser­vices Soite has car­ried out a pilot project test­ing elec­tron­ic book­ing of appoint­ments for coro­n­avirus test­ing. The elec­tron­ic book­ing sys­tem is linked to the Omaolo ser­vice and has been test­ed con­cern­ing the dri­ve-in test­ing site in Kokko­la. The expe­ri­ences from the pilot project have been pos­i­tive and, there­fore, the elec­tron­ic book­ing of appoint­ments is expand­ed to the entire Soite area.

As of Mon­day 2nd of Novem­ber 2020, it is also pos­si­ble to book an appoint­ment for a coro­n­avirus test to the dri­ve-in test­ing sites at the infec­tion recep­tions in Kan­nus and Veteli. You get access to the book­ing sys­tem via the symp­tom check-up in Omaolo if the symp­tom check-up rec­om­mends a test.

In the Omaolo ser­vice, a per­son who has symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus fills in the symp­tom check-up. The Omaolo ser­vice will use the answers to assess the like­li­hood that the client has a coro­n­avirus infec­tion. When need­ed, the client will be offered a chance to book an appoint­ment for coro­n­avirus test­ing in Soite. The elec­tron­ic book­ing of an appoint­ment for coro­n­avirus test­ing is con­veyed to Soite’s appoint­ment book via Soite’s Oma­hoito ser­vice. The elec­tron­ic book­ing works through strong identification.

The coro­n­avirus symp­tom check-up in Omaolo and the elec­tron­ic book­ing work par­al­lel to Soite’s coro­n­avirus helpline.

We con­tin­ue to rec­om­mend that those who live in Soite’s area con­tact Soite even if they only have mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus. From now on, Soite can be con­tact­ed by fill­ing in the Omaolo symp­tom check-up. If your symp­toms require it, your con­tact infor­ma­tion can be con­veyed to Soite. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can book a time your­self via Omaolo to a dri­ve-in test­ing site. The coro­n­avirus helpline is still open on week­days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on week­ends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., phone 06 828 7499. It is pro­hib­it­ed to dri­ve onto the dri­ve-in lane with­out an appointment.
