Four new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite

Four new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite. All four cas­es are con­nect­ed to the chain of infec­tions in Skelleft­eå, which we informed about yesterday.

Employ­ees at North­volt who have returned to Fin­land from Skelleft­eå after Sat­ur­day the 23rd of Jan­u­ary 2021 con­tin­ue to be urged to seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing. In this excep­tion­al case, coro­n­avirus test­ing should be sought out even if one has no symp­toms. Going to a test is nec­es­sary even if a neg­a­tive coro­n­avirus test has already been tak­en at the fac­to­ry or at the west­ern bor­der. In these cas­es, the inter­val between the tests must be at least 72 h.

The coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic is wors­en­ing in Skelleft­eå and cas­es of the mutat­ed virus which orig­i­nates from Britain have been con­firmed at Northvolt’s fac­to­ry. Employ­ees may have been exposed to the mutat­ed virus when work­ing at the fac­to­ry. The COVID-19 caused by the mutat­ed virus is not more dan­ger­ous than the ear­li­er form of the dis­ease, but it spreads more easily.

When employ­ees are wait­ing for coro­n­avirus test­ing or for the results from a test, they must be care­ful­ly self-quar­an­tined and avoid all con­tact with oth­er people.
